Putting on the glitz for ChildAid

Putting on the glitz for ChildAid

SINGAPORE - Some 120 young performers spent their September school holiday basking in glamour.

The group, part of the cast for this year's ChildAid concert, got all dolled up for a publicity photo shoot themed "The Oscars Meets K-pop".

Some also practised their vocals and dance moves at a workshop earlier in the week.

The annual charity event's hair and make-up partner Cosmoprof heaped on the glitz. For ChildAid's glittery 10th edition, it turned some of the participants, aged seven to 24, into a cross between screen actress Scarlett Johansson and the stars of K-pop girl band Girls' Generation.

The photo studio at the Singapore Press Holdings News Centre was abuzz with activity as performers admired one another's makeovers and snapped "wefies" - or self-taken group shots - while they waited for their turn.

"We look so fabulous!" said ITE Show Choir member Sharifah Shahirah Aljunied, 19, looking at the publicity shots afterwards.

This year's milestone All-Stars Edition concert brings together ChildAid alumni such as piano prodigy Abigail Sin and singer-actor Nathan Hartono, both of whom performed at the event in its early years.

Said Mr Hartono, 23: "I've always had a soft spot for this concert. The 2005 show was the first major concert I had ever done."
