联合早报 黄靖晶(2007-07-25)

本地歌手陈洁仪今年获选演唱国庆主题歌。这是她十年来再度唱国庆歌曲。

回顾过去几年的歌手人选,就陈洁仪和孙燕姿先后唱过两次国庆主题歌,其他歌手包括陶菲克、芮恩、林俊杰、蔡健雅和许美静等。

这些歌手中,尽管有的已经举行过不少演唱会,有的经历过比赛,算是身经百战,但一旦站在国庆舞台上,仍可以感受到非一般演出的激昂心情与爱国情怀。

究竟这些歌手当时演唱国庆主题歌的心情是怎样的?他们心目中还有哪些适合演唱国庆歌的人选?

很高亢、激动,很棒!

陈洁仪
2007年:唱《我只愿留在此地》(There’s No Place I’d Rather Be)
2004年:跟林俊杰合唱《家》
1998年:唱《家》

陈洁仪今年将演唱由本地音乐人叶良俊创作的英语主题歌曲《我只愿留在此地》。除了2004年跟林俊杰合唱《家》,这算是她第二次独唱国庆歌曲,第一次是1998年时唱《家》,那也是第一首国庆歌。

唱国庆歌的心情,陈洁仪说:“很高亢、激动,因为站在台上,可以感觉对国家的归属感与使命感,很棒!”

心目中人选:阿杜、蔡淳佳

陈洁仪说,阿杜、蔡淳佳在歌坛有一段时间,两人已证明自己是唱将,或许是每年有不同的筹委,作不同的选择标准,因此迟迟没有轮到他们。

2006年的国庆歌由龚诗嘉演唱,因她太新而引起争议,陈洁仪不以为然,“国庆典礼固然需要适当的歌手带动气氛,但也是推广本地新人的大好机会。”

孙燕姿
2003年:唱《全心全意》(One United People)
2002年:唱《一起走到》(We Will Get There)

孙燕姿连续两年获选,可见当年她已魅力非凡。孙燕姿2003年受访时说:“我很担心自己的演唱没有第一次出色。你知道,要面对6万人演唱,心情肯定会非常紧张。但是经过考虑后,我还是决定答应下来,毕竟这是一件非常光荣的事。”

林俊杰
2004年:和陈洁仪合唱《家》

庆典当晚,林俊杰除了在压轴节目与陈洁仪合唱外,还以全新方式呈现“嘻哈”版的《家》。

林俊杰说,能够和几万人一起庆祝国庆日,是兴奋又好玩的一次经验。

蔡健雅
2001年:唱《属于》(Where I Belong)

许美静与本地马来歌手Jai
2000年:唱《星月》(Shine on Me)

芮恩:感觉很梦幻
陶菲克:压力倍增

陶菲克(Taufik)与芮恩
2005年:合唱“Reach Out For The Sky”

芮恩说:“我还记得当时的心情,像做梦。那时感觉很梦幻,我站在台上演唱,烟花就在我眼前绽放,非常回味当时的情景,永远忘不了。”

比较一般的演出,芮恩唱国庆歌的压力倍增,“因为全国都在看你唱歌,算是代表了国家,前一晚我还紧张得失眠。”

当时,芮恩出道四年,她感恩地说:“一般是给资深歌手,感激负责单位敢冒险给新人这样的曝光机会。”

陶菲克比芮恩更新,前年刚获得“新加坡偶像”冠军。他说:“刚知道受邀唱国庆歌时非常意外、兴奋,很荣幸。这比一般演出的压力要大一倍,因为全国人民在看你演唱。”

心目中人选:每一名新加坡歌手

芮恩和陶菲克希望每一名新加坡歌手都有机会,那么观众看了也有新鲜感。陶菲克还建议让本地乐团演唱国庆歌,增加新鲜感。

肩负“新人”的压力

龚诗嘉
2006年:唱《绿色岛屿》(My Island Home)

龚诗嘉出道不到一年,就被选唱国庆主题歌,结果引起争议,她还那么新,为什么机会不是给其他更资深的本地歌手?

对此,龚诗嘉说:“那时我很新,刚从台湾宣传第一张专辑回新加坡,就接到这个消息,自己也非常惊讶,觉得不可思议。之后,我也有心理准备会有争议。

“记得《新报》访问公众,有的说不认识我。虽然公司因此感到难过,这反而激发我要做得更好,来证明自己。”

因此,龚诗嘉肩负“新人”的压力督促自己。她说:“国庆之前,我在家一直练唱,早餐后一直唱到午餐,然后去跑步、游泳练气,保持在最佳状态。”

母亲也助女儿一臂之力,每天准备凉茶给龚诗嘉喝。

龚诗嘉认为,唱国庆歌的压力比一般演出的压力大很多,“自己像在人海中演唱。我怕高,却要站在约三层楼的升降台上唱歌,得逼自己克服高度一关。”

心目中人选:蔡淳佳

龚诗嘉认为,蔡淳佳出道有一段时间,歌唱得好,又具备丰富的歌唱经验,希望很快会轮到她。

明年轮到他们?

热门人选阿杜:如果明年问我,我一定唱!

阿杜是众多本地歌手推荐唱国庆歌的热门人选。

前天,阿杜受访时说:“主办单位一两年前找过公司谈,不过当时的时间配合不到。如果主办单位明年问我,我一定唱!我想为国家做出贡献,希望明年有机会唱国庆歌。”

LAST year, we heard hardly a peep from Phyllis Quek.

What has she been up to?

Catching up with life, it seems.

Despite being away for so long, Phyllis said she’s not bothered by younger actresses – namely, the Seven Princesses (Jesseca Liu, Felicia Chin, Fiona Xie, Joanne Peh, Jeanette Aw, Dawn Yeoh, Rui En) – who are being touted as the ones to look out for.

“This industry always has a lot of packaging,” she said.

She declined to name who she would tip as the next “Ah Jie” but said things are much harder to predict these days.

HONOUR AND PASSION
STARRING: Huang Wenyong, Tay Ping Hui, Bryan Wong, Rui En, Nat Ho, Felicia Chin
SHOWING ON: Channel 8, weekdays, 9pm, starting tonight
RATING: ****

lianyi@sph.com.sg

I DIDN’T quite expect it, but new local series Honour And Passion is a winner.

It’s one of those sponsored shows (by the Singapore Armed Forces this time) and MediaCorp’s record has been pretty hit-and-miss with that.

But it turns out to be a pretty likable drama about National Service.

Plot has never been a strong point with local shows. Plus, it is never easy to judge a story based on the two episodes reviewers get to watch.

So I go with these questions. Is the characterisation good? Is there chemistry between the actors? And do I enjoy the two hours I spend with them?

Yes to all.

Honour And Passion is about a military warrant officer (Huang Wenyong) and his four children (Tay Ping Hui, Bryan Wong, Rui En, Nat Ho).

Ping Hui is a commando officer, Bryan that rare thing, a male with empathy, Rui En a tomboy and Nat an undisciplined runt.

Somehow, for a bunch so good-looking, they are all losers at romance.

There’s also a terrorist subplot in there somewhere.

The most interesting casting choice is Felicia Chin as an artillery instructor. I’ve never seen a female soldier that hot in real life.

Women everywhere should ask what sunblock her character Ouyang Peipei uses, because nobody exposed to that much sun remains that pink-cheeked and snowy white.

A truly ludicrous introduction is when one student whispers to another: “I don’t even know if anybody would want her.”

I know that’s supposed to play on the (unfair) stereotype that military women are butchy, but come on.

Still, I guess her casting works in the sense that the part of the brain that says “that’s unbelievable” is quickly overpowered by the part that says “that’s unbelievably hot”.

It might have something to do with me and uniforms though.

That said, it is the other female lead, Rui En, who steals the show.

Her character – tomboyish yet vulnerable, with a tremendously low tolerance for alcohol – is by far the most interesting.

As an actress, Rui En has always seemed a bit standoffish, but her character gets so much grief in the first two episodes that she is easy to relate to. Even lovable!

I am looking forward to her character’s interactions with Pierre Png’s. They make quite the amusing pair.

CLEVER TWIST

Their meeting is pretty stereotypical (I don’t know how many MediaCorp drama serials has had boy crash into girl, get angry with each other, eventually become lovers) but the twist – she has no idea that Pierre hates her – is clever.

WHAT THOSE TICKS MEAN
***** Excellent
**** Good
*** Average
** Mediocre
* Don’t bother

新传媒新闻报道,新加坡80年代的连续剧《新兵小传》脍灸人口,现在从新兵变成老兵的黄文永,在新剧《宝家卫国》中,率领新传媒一众阿哥美女,让大家对陆军生活有个新了解。

以陆军生活为背景的《宝家卫国》,讲述宝家一家五口对军队生活的不同看法。黄文永所饰演的父亲是职业军人,也用军中的管理方法管教一家人。这是他自80年代的《新兵小传》之后,再一次饰演军人。

黄文永说,“在25年前《新兵小传》的生活跟现在的军营生活确实是很大的不一样。除了在技术上的改善之外,环境还有所有的训练各方面都让我们看到,身为父母的都很安心孩子在里面服兵役。”

《宝家卫国》演员阵容强大,除了阿哥级的郑斌辉、王禄江、方展发之外, 也包括了”七公主”的陈凤玲、芮恩和姚懿珊。其中有 “军中情人”之称的陈凤玲,首次穿军衣,展现英姿。

陈凤玲说,“我觉得新加坡的军人真的很伟大,而且身为新加坡人很受保护的感觉。”

郑斌辉也说,“这部戏能够让我们知道我们的军队进步到什么地步。新的配备,新的方式,新的运作方式。”

20集的《宝家卫国》将于在7月24日起,每逢周一至周五,晚上9点在八频道播出。
