City Harvest Church member Belinda Lee has been nominated again, for the Top 10 Most Popular Female Artiste at MediaCorp’s Star Awards this Sunday, April 24. Place your vote to support her by calling 1900-112-2032. Telepoll lines close on Sunday, April 24 at 9pm. Each call costs $0.80.
Lee has also been nominated for the Best Infotainment Host award, for the series Star For A Cause 2. She won the Best Infotainment Host award two years ago. This year, Lee says she’s up against strong competitors: Brian Wong, Mark Lee, Joanne Peh and Guo Liang. “I was shocked I was nominated because of the few programs I hosted last year, only Star For A Cause 2 is worth mentioning—and I only hosted one episode of the entire series, while the other hosts had to do the entire series!”
Ironically, Lee was not the only host of Star For A Cause 2, but the only one who was nominated. In that single episode, Lee embarked on an overseas humanitarian trip to a very remote part of China. “It was almost impossible to get there due to harsh weather conditions such as rain and snow,” recalled Lee. “On that trip, I was supposed to build a library for that town in 10 days. However, it took me nine days just to get there, and many adversities came my way, like mudslides and landslides.
“I risked my life on that trip, but I was kept safe by the grace of God. I believe the audience and the judges were touched by my dedication.”
As for the Most Popular Female Artiste award, “If I win, that has to really be from God because I didn’t host or act much last year!”
Currently, audiences can watch Lee on Channel 8 from Mondays to Fridays at 9pm in the Chinese drama The In-Laws. She also has an upcoming Channel 8 show called Show Me The Money which is about managing finances. Lee reprises her hosting role for the third season of Renovaid, and will also be one of the hosts for the National Day Parade this year.
City Harvesters often see Lee on screen in church as a video announcer. “I hope to do more—I’ve actually been asking for more opportunities to serve,” she says. “I don’t mind being an usher! But I would really like to take part in the drama productions, but my schedule is always very packed. I hope one year, I can act in the Christmas drama.”
