M! and M
Michelle & I have not caught up in ages and ages, but there was the occasional blog-visiting on both sides now and then. I visited Michelle’s site again recently and found she was involved in this new project: M! the Opera.
M! The Opera explores the dramatic struggle between those who have found fame and love, and those who are about to achieve them, all set in the sumptuous world of couture. It involves some of the big names of the Malaysian arts, including Jit Murad and Paula Malai Ali.
It’s appropriate that Michelle, who has been climbing up the musical ladder recently, is going to be part of an opera that emphasises the struggle to achieve fame and glory.
From singing and conducting church choirs back in our younger youth days, to singing for Christian choir The Canticle Singers, and now projecting her great vocal cords onto the larger Malaysian arts scene, this girl really has something wonderful going for her. Her voice is sweet, innocent and at the same time powerful and controlled. You go girl! We’re all really proud of you.
