The Straits Times : Tsunami voices

2005-07-18
HOMEGROWN singers Kit Chan, Ho Yeow Sun and Joi Chua will record a song - for the first time together - to raise funds for the Asian tsunami re-building effort.
The Mandarin song - One Brick, One Tile - is in a compilation album titled Hands United. It is in support of the Habitat For Humanity Singapore's effort to build homes for tsunami victims in Aceh.
The song is adapted from a tune written by local Malay artiste Jaliboy following the tragedy last December called Pancarkan Keihsanan (A Showcase Of Humanity).
Music Funky Monkeys Productions' lyricist Xiaohan, composers Eric Ng and Jim Lim did the adaptation.
Two other versions of the song, in English and Tamil, also appear on the album.
More than 60 people, including artistes and musicians, worked on the album after Jaliboy invited other singers to record his song with him.
Launched last Friday, the album also features covers of hits by Stefanie Sun and Sandy Lam.
It goes on sale at $20 each at major record shops at the end of this month.

台灣蘋果日報 : 莫文蔚《吉屋出租》(Rent) 挑大樑 百老匯歌舞劇 明年二月來台 
2005-07-23 
她二月曾在香港演出舞台劇《半生緣》,戲中詮釋作家張愛玲,包括男友馮德倫等親友看過戲後,對她的演出都讚譽有加。當時她就表示迷上了舞台劇,希望可以再有機會上台,上月她在香港看另部音樂劇《周末夜狂熱》(Saturday Night Fever)時,也重申她的興趣,卻沒想到機會來得又快又好,有機會和百老匯演員合作名劇《吉屋出租》。
年底亞洲巡演
一九九六年首演的《吉屋出租》被視為百老匯九
年代的代表作品,劇中多首歌曲膾炙人口,《Seasons Of Love》(愛的季節)曾被林憶蓮翻唱。今年底起的亞洲巡演是該劇的十周年紀念大事,該劇經紀公司巡演前考慮在劇中安插一位能唱能演的亞洲演員,對方找上Sony BMG公司的外籍高層詢問,莫文蔚因而中選,將演出女主角「咪咪」。
全劇英文演出
《吉》劇明年二月才來台,但因耗費預算達兩千五百萬元,演出經紀公司布洛克兄弟已提前在本月開放售票,還開放七折折扣。只是不少觀眾看到莫文蔚參演,一度還以為是中文版來台。害得布洛克兄弟得不斷解釋該劇是紐約演出團直接來台,全劇英文演出。
曾在英國看過此劇的莫文蔚,獲得參演機會興奮得不得了,下月她還將飛到紐約定裝、拍劇照。
