On 2 May, a group of 300 youth from Audrey Ng’s zone jam-packed the Conference Room 2 at Singapore Expo Hall 8.
All came excited, anticipating a great night of fun and fellowship. The event kicked off with a performance by the zone’s dance team, The Loud Crew.
There was a lineup of “stars” in the room, including Coldplay, Jason Mraz and Rihanna. Though not professionally trained, these entertainers had their audiences transfixed with their great performances.
Pamela Choo, a 19-year-old student and the Lead Vocalist of The Loud Band shared her inspiring testimony of how she overcame her low self-esteem as God revealed her purpose and talents at the lowest point in her life. “It’s a privilege and honor to stand on stage and perform — it has always been my dream to be able to showcase my talents. I hope to see our friends encouraged that the stage can also be the platform to share and showcase talents.”
Why a concert? Wayne Choong, the organizer of this event explained: “The leaders brainstormed and came up with this idea; we thought it would be good as a concert could involve our own youth band, The Loud Band.”

The night ended with everyone giving “The Loud Cheer” in unison.
Guests to the event, 13-year-old Myung Eun and 17-year-old Hye June, who are both from Korea, said, “We truly enjoyed the band — it was our favorite part of the party. We would definitely love to come back again.”
