SIN­GA­POREAN singer-song­writer Han­jin Tan, 41, is one of the four judges of the in­au­gu­ral Sin­ga­pore/Malaysia edi­tion of the singing show, The Voice.

He has writ­ten and pro­duced for top stars such as Sammi Cheng and Ea­son Chan from Hong Kong, and Amer­i­can singer Christina Aguil­era.

The Hong Kong-based mu­si­cian’s name was re­vealed along with Chi­nese bal­ladeer Della Ding Dang, 34; Malaysian singer­song­writer Gary Chaw, 37 (pic); and Tai­wanese crooner Sky Wu, 50.

The singing con­test will be hosted by Sin­ga­porean DJ Huang Wen­hong and Malaysian artiste Siow Hui Mei. It pre­mieres on Sept 17 on As­tro AEC.

Last month, the show had drawn flak af­ter calling for par- tic­i­pants who are “flu­ent in Man­darin” and “able to per­form Man­darin songs”.

The pop­u­lar fran­chise, which orig­i­nates from Holland, has been held around the world in var­i­ous lan­guages since 2010.

The lo­cal ver­sion is pro­duced by Sin­ga­pore-based com­pany mm2 En­ter­tain­ment and co-pro­duced by StarHub and As­tro. – The Straits Times/Asia News Net­work
