Lifestyle Picks Ep 82: Join virtual ChildAid2020 choir to raise funds for children

14:24 mins

Synopsis: Every Thursday, find out about #StayHome lifestyle, entertainment and arts choices during the Covid-19 period in Singapore now.

Host Ernest Luis chats with artistic director of ChildAid 2020 – Jeremiah Choy – on the idea for this year's charity concert to be streamed online on July 15 at 8pm during the Covid-19 pandemic.

They are joined by performer and composer Amni Musfirah and Zach Edwards, who is only 7 years of age. They both sing on the spot, a verse or two from the ChildAid theme song, A World To Imagine. (3:30)

The concert hopes to feature more than 200 past ChildAid performers singing this theme song, to help raise funds for The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund and The Business Times Budding Artists Fund.

If you are below 19, and would like to be part of the choir in the video, apply by June 15 at str.sg/childaidchoir (6:55)

We also discuss the aspects to recreate the concert hall experience virtually, via 360-degree immersive video and three-dimensional 360-degree audio. (8:15)
