Taiwanese singer Wang Lee Hom was in town over the weekend as a special guest for the grand opening ceremony of ION Orchard. With his nifty dance moves and smooth velvety vocals, Lee Hom danced and sang his ways into hearts of the audience present.
Casually dressed in jeans, 33-year-old Lee Hom made his grand appearance at 8pm that night. With an exuberant smile on his face, Lee Hom constantly interacted with his fans, waving and greeting them with bouts of "Hi, Hello!"
He also greeted President S. R. Nathan, who was amongst the distinguish guests present for the event and revealed that he is in the same alumni as Senior Minister, Goh Chok Tong.
"Senior Minister Goh and I used to study at William's College. I have seen him around in the school campus many years ago."
A constant visitor to our sunny shores, Lee Hom's last visit to Singapore was in 2008 for his Music Man World Tour.
"I have been visiting Singapore every year since 1995," said Lee Hom who shared that his three-day stay here is "the longest thus far" and commented that it "feels like a holiday!"
That night, Lee Hom performed a repertoire of three songs including a swoon-worthy English track performed on the piano, "I hope you don't mind". He strummed along on his electric guitar and bowled fans over with his rendition of "What's wrong with me" and the upbeat, "Heroes of Earth".
As his performance came to a close, Lee Hom started to countdown to the fireworks performance with the host. An array of fireworks filled the skies with its magnificent display.
After the end of the fireworks display, Lee Hom left the outdoor stage venue and entered the shopping center under the company of three to four bodyguards. The amiable singer was welcomed with high-pitched screams upon his entry into ION Orchard and shook hands with a few lucky fans.
