CHAR­LIE LIM

Harper's Bazaar (Singapore) - - THE NEWS -

If you like rainy days and stay­ing in bed, Lim’s reper­toire is def­i­nitely up your al­ley. The singer-song­writer, mu­si­cian and pro­ducer, whose melan­cholic sound has earned him a loyal fol­low­ing here, was the first artist to have sold-out shows at the Mo­saic Mu­sic Fes­ti­val and to have a num­ber one sin­gle on the iTunes Sin­ga­pore chart within an hour—enough rea­son to have him write songs for the coun­try, surely? For this year’s Na­tional Day Pa­rade, the 29-year-old up­dated the 1987 clas­sic, “We are Sin­ga­pore”, in­cor­po­rat­ing its catchy cho­rus into a new con­tem­po­rary tune. Shin­ing the light back on the lo­cal mu­sic scene, Lim teamed up with other names like Shak and Joanna Dong to per­form the song.
