The star bares his soul.

On a single morning on Jan. 24, award-winning singer-songwriter, Eric Moo shared his testimony twice—first at the English service at Singapore Expo, and immediately after, across the island at the Chinese service in Jurong West.
He performed a total of two songs, one of which was the hit song he wrote for Taiwanese singer, Sandy Lam, “At Least There’s Still You”. Moo credits this song to God, inspired by his own salvation experience.
Moo started his music career at the age of 17 playing in a music group, Subway Band, and debuted on stage in 1986. He then released his first Mandarin album Feelings which topped the Singapore pop charts. He has since released over 40 albums and performed in more than 40 concerts in countries which include Singapore, Malaysia and Taiwan in the past 26 years of his career.
Speaking in Mandarin, Moo talked about his first visit to CHC in 2008, and even showed the congregation where he sat in the service. He also shared his personal story of how he overcame his smoking addiction. As a new believer, he was still smoking regularly until God intervened through some of his friends. While in their company one day, he lit a cigarette and began smoking. His friends offered to pray with him to stop the unhealthy habit. By the grace of God, Moo testified that he has not picked up another cigarette stick since that day!
That Sunday morning showed another side to the entertainer. Moo carried the message of how a personal relationship with God can empower a person. He constantly gave glory to God for all that was taking place in his life and career.
Chen Yue Qun, 25, commented, “Moo’s testimony was an inspiration to me. His honesty and openness really touched me.”
