 Being one of the competitors in the Professor Edmond Ko Cup Singing Contest 2014/15, I can tell you that the vibes on and off stage are two completely different worlds.

Please take an imaginary ride with me. In daytime, you are no more than an ordinary insect to most of the people. However, when the night comes, it gives you the chance to glow, the chance for you to grasp people’s attention. And this, is exactly how I felt when I stood on stage. Those unfamiliar faces, all with staring eyes, penetrating into me… that is the time for me to showcase my talent, for me to show people the best of me.

After the three minutes of performance, being off stage as one of the audience is as well fun and engaging. When you are among your hall mates, cheering for your respective halls, chanting along with your hall beat… that feeling of unity and sense of belonging to your own hall would definitely overwhelm your emotions…

No matter how bad or how well I sing on stage, I have enjoyed the stage that I have gotten. No matter if my hall won or not, I have had a fun and amazing time when I cheered along with my hall mates. To be thankful with the opportunities we have, and to make the most out of everything we do. These experiences on and off stage have given me something to learn – To live in the moment.

作為參加了2014-2015年度高彥鳴教授杯歌唱比賽的一員,我可以告訴大家——在台上和台下的感受是千差萬別的。

下面請和我一起做一些假設與想象。在白天的時間里,對於大多數人來說,你和一個普通的昆蟲沒有什麼區別。但是當夜晚降臨,你便被賦予了綻放與發光的機會,去吸引他人的注意。這就是我站在台上作為一名歌唱選手的感受。似乎那些陌生的臉龐、睜大的雙眼可以把我整個人都看透,徹徹底底。這也正是我展示自己的才能並將最好的一面呈現在大家面前的絕佳的機會。

三分鐘的表演過後,我成為台下觀眾中的一員,這也是件有趣的事情。當你和同舍堂的朋友坐在一起,大聲喊著口號為自己的舍堂加油助威時,那一種團結一心的歸屬感定會激發你的全部情感。

不管我表現的好與壞,我都很享受在舞台上的時刻。不論我的舍堂有沒有取得最終的勝利,在和我的夥伴們一同加油的過程中我都感到十分的快樂和震撼。我們十分感謝這次的機會,也盡力把所有事情做到最好。謝謝這些台上台下的經歷,從中我學會了去活在當下。

(編注:作者在獨唱項目中以美國歌手Eminem及Rihanna的《Love the Way You Lie》勇奪亞軍,可喜可賀!)
