Taiwan Mandopop Heats Up Singapore @ Spring Wave 2014 (春浪音乐节 2014)

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Taiwan was brought to Singapore with this year's Spring Wave Music Festival 2014 (春浪音乐节 2014). Not only were there the ever so popular Mandopop singers, all "shipped" to out Lion City to give us eargasms, there's even the popular food delights from their night market!

The annual outdoor music festival was organised by Friendly Dog Entertainment Co. Ltd. and presented by Tiger Beer with over six 'live' sessions by Taiwan's top Mandopop stars A-mei, Jam Hsiao, Della Ding Dang, Yao Yao and Bii.

Warming up the festival was Chriz Tong, Singapore’s representative to the inaugural Global Spring Wave Awards held in Kenting, Taiwan back in April, where over 200 bands from all over the world submitted their performance to the competition.  

Aunty Roxy

After which, Auntie Roxy, winner of the First Global Spring Wave Award took to the stage, rocking their hearts out. It is the first time that they are performing outside of Taiwan and they performed 2 of their original creations - 'I Am Tired'& 'Nothing At All. 

Boxing - a Taiwanese aboriginal rap-pop band came up next, before the otaku goddess - Yao Yao 

瑤瑤 (Guo Shu Yao 郭書瑤) came out to melt their hearts of ours.

She belted out non-stop love songs  from Taylor Swift’s ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ to a Chinese cover of KARA’s ‘Honey’. She surprised with a tug of her fluffy skirt, revealing a pair of hot pants, showing off her lanky legs, coming close to her fans as she sat on the ledge of the stage, She then ended her performance with her hit song  ‘Ai De Bao Bao’, which I bet fans hoped she did gave out some. :D

The next round of performance was by Bii. This half Korean, half Taiwanese cutie was grabbing all the ladies attention as her introduced himself after a few songs, acknowledging  the fact that he’s a “new face” to everyone.  He then ended his performance with a rendition of Aerosmith's 'I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing'.

As the night falls and the ground gets more crowded, Della Ding Dang 丁当 brought the concert to a climax with her power house voice. Wearing a cute mint green romper suit , she kickstarted her performance with her signature song -  ‘Wo Shi Yi Zhi Xiao Xiao Niao’. She then did a couple of sexy numbers like ‘Ye Mao’ and Beyonce’s ‘Crazy in Love’.

She then did a surprise segment of having cheerleaders from Nanyang Polytechnic joining her on stage with cheer routines and two-and-a-half-high stunts.  She then performed the perfect Spring dance song - ‘Wo Ai Xia Tian’ to end her set, bringing the crowd to a new high in anticipation for the next singer.

‘Fu Er Mo Si’ plays on the concert grounds and everyone jumped onto their feet and Jam Hsiao 蕭敬騰 enters with his electric blue jacket that is of reminiscent of his idol - late Michael Jackson. He continued pushing his vocals to the limit with ‘Yuan Liang Wo’, as fans kept on cheering him on and he looked so animated with all his stunts!

Of course not forgetting his KTV must-sing song - Xin Bu Liao Qing’ and then rocking out with ‘Black and White’ and ‘Wang Fei’, everyone was singing along as this rocker belted his high notes. That's why I like him so much, he performs amazingly LIVE!

As the stage lit up with the drum beats, everyone sprang to their feet, wildly cheering, to welcome the Mandopop diva - A-Mei.

Dressed in tattooed leggings and an oversized black t-shirt, A-Mei 張惠妹 performed a selection of old tunes from her earlier albums, as fans sung along as though the national anthem! She also announced the news of an upcoming album release and ended the concert with ‘San Tian San Ye’. It wasn't as high a performance as we expected, and I was waiting for Jam Hsiao and A-Mei to perform their duet 'Yi Yan Shun Jian'. *sad*

All performing artistes also donated their prized personal possessions to a charity auction in support of Spring Wave Singapore's annual social responsibility initiatives. Proceeds were donated to charities for underprivileged children, namely Singapore's Student Advisory Centre and Hong Kong's Little Yellow Flower Education Foundation.
Can't wait for Spring Wave to be back again next year!
