My brother, the songwriter

It isn’t every day that one gets to be in the spotlight. And it isn’t every day that we know someone who gets that chance in a lifetime. But come this December 2nd, my brother will have the rare and special opportunity to do so.

Yes, my brother’s personal composition entitled “You” has made it to the finals of the Malaysian Revival Songwriting Competition 2007 (MRSC 2007). I am so very proud of him because his song is now one of the final NINE songs to be performed that night. Ever since he told me that he made it through to the selection stage, I have been rooting for him, and so of course, I was extremely jubilant when he told me he now had a one in nine chance of winning! Oh yes, I’ve heard his song and it’s really really good 🙂 Having said that, it is unfortunate that I will not be able to make it for the finals because the concert-like atmosphere is not something Ethan would enjoy, not now anyway. But if anyone would like to attend the concert and support my bro, please go ahead!

The concert will be held on Dec 2nd 2007 at the Matrade Hall in Jalan Duta, Kuala Lumpur. This charity event is held to raise funds for the National Kidney Foundation of Malaysia, Real Love Ministries (RLM – a counseling program to help the homosexual community) and NIE Asia (Helping to build wells in Cambodia). Thus, invitation and/or tickets to this event is by donation only:

Donation below RM 50 (Minimum RM 10)

BLUE TICKETS (entitled to a CD as token of appreciation)
Donation above RM 50

PINK TICKETS (entitled to a CD as token of appreciation) – VIP
Donation above RM 200

Note: The CD above would either be Carbon (Compilation of Finalists from MRSC 2005) or Rizuan the Musical (Compilation of Finalists from MRSC 2006)

If you are interested to get the tickets, please contact me personally or check out my brother’s blog for details. For more information about this spectacular event, visit the organizer’s website here.

You go, bro!

    You can also listen to clips of all 9 songs that will be performed in the FINALS at the same site as well.

    To make things simpler and also for those who want to support me but cannot make it, you may simply type “A” and SMS to 33225 (each SMS costs RM 0.50). SMS voting does count for a portion of the judging. 😉
