Earlier today, I was featured on Hit Banget on RIA 89.7FM. They have this segment called “Karaoke Suka-Suka“. In the past, one of Hafeez Glamour‘s favourite segments amongst the listeners was the karaoke segment. People like Hetty Sarlene, Rudy Djoharnaen and Mansor Warren were fine examples of this “alumnus”. This was where I honed my skills as a music critic as well as show off my talents, or lack thereof depending on your perceptions. Ever since Hafeez revamped his daily programmes in the last year and a half, the segment was wiped off, so there went one avenue for me to spread my wings. But this weekly one-hour programme meant for the Indonesian workers tuning in, gave me the opportunity to resurrect something that I had long missed and so wanted to do. The itch was certainly there, moreso since my last live performance was during my wedding dinner, if my memory still serves me well.
I find it amusing that WordPress does not allow us to embed music files. As such I could not upload the clip in my main domain. But fret not, luckily Multiply allows us to upload music files so for those of you who would like to hear this frog croaking… I mean, me singing, here’s your chance to do so if you really want to know how I sound like when I open my mouth to sing. The singing was not done live during the show but the recording was done about 9 days ago in the early morning, when I was on leave. If you guys can guess, that’s the voice of someone who has just woken up and trying to find his rhythm. The only part I wasn’t too pleased about my singing was when Hafeez came into the picture, which in turn affected my key and subsequently, my voice cracked in the end. Hehehe excuses!!! I’m ready for all the brickbats coming my way, if you wish to comment on my singing…
So what you’ve got to do is click here. Then you have a choice of either to download or click on Play This Playlist. If you click on the latter, please be prepared to wait awhile for the clip to upload. And the rest as they say, enjoy!!!
