Dubbed as Singapore’s first lady of jazz, Rani Singam performs not just as a vocalist, but as a narrator who tells the story of our collective lives. Both the audience and the performers share the stage as we dream, experience and remember our lives together. The music-movie concept was inspired by “Remember”, the love theme from the movie Cinema Paradiso which forms part of the programme. The audience is invited to experience the concert as a movie - where one enters a world of musical stories filled with love, companionship, fulfilment, life’s curved balls, disappointments and tragedies.
The music spans many genres from classical to pop to jazz, varied and unexpected, arranged by the inventive and evocative Chok Kerong. With every movie comes a twist or two, so be prepared!
Rani Singam is one of the most sought-after and accomplished contemporary vocalists today. She has been named in “The Jazz Singers, The Ultimate Guide”, a Hal Leonard publication which serves as an encyclopedic guide on the important singers in jazz. Her albums “With A Song In My Heart” (2004) and “Contentment” (2011) have earned her critical acclaim and recognition. Apart from her strong vocals and fine interpretative skills, Rani has a truly endearing way of connecting with the audience. “She doesn’t just sing the songs, she sometimes becomes the song” (TODAY)
