1. Dominic Chin
You’d best put this young 23-year-old singer-songwriter on your radar right now, so you can sing along immediately to his songs when they start hitting the airwaves. Since 2010, Dominic has been covering pop and R&B songs on YouTube as DominicSings. After serving mandatory 2 years of NS, he’s now a full-time artiste with the Music and Drama Company (MDC) of So Drama Entertainment. Dominic made headlines for his tribute song to Mr Lee Kuan Yew, which he also wrote; it attracted so many views that PM Lee Hsien Loong saw it too, and sent Dominic a personal thank you e-mail! He stayed busy, contributing his writing and singing talents to the NS50 Album title track, “We’ll Carry On.” Check out his latest self-penned single “CLSE2U,” a heartfelt exploration of the push and pull of a relationship. We can’t wait to hear more original songs from Dominic!
