Grand plans for Sun Ho: Tour with Rihanna and Akon

SINGAPORE - Web summary: Day Three of the City Harvest trial and the spotlight remains on singer Ho Yeow Sun.

Known as Sun Ho in the pop music world, she turned up in court on Wednesday dressed in black from head to toe.

Ms Ho's husband, City Harvest Church (CHC) founder Kong Hee, and five others are accused of misusing more than $50 million of church funds - $24 million to fund her singing career and another $26.6 million to cover the tracks of the first amount.

Ms Ho was the face of the Crossover Project, a plan by the church to use her popularity in the pop world to spread the church's message.

Xtron Productions was the company that managed Ms Ho from 2003 to 2008.

In court, Xtron director Choong Kar Weng, 41, said the church's board management knew that Xtron was managing Ms Ho's career and the Crossover Project.

The church and Xtron were trying to further Ms Ho's career in the US.

Mr Edwin Tong, who represented Kong, presented a series of e-mail exchanges between Kong and Mr Justin Herz, whose talent management outfit was in charge of Ms Ho's activities in the US.
