JOIE TAN, 23
She started posting her song covers on Youtube when she was 14. She launched her debut album, Joie, in April this year. She was a music and art teacher at a preschool for a semester. And a volunteer dog walker for The Right to Live.
Tan is at a crossroads. She likes to sing but isn’t sure if she wants to be the kind of singer who tours and sells out an arena. While she figures that out and waits for the result of her US artist visa application “to live and perform in New York City for three years”, Tan is sure of one thing: “I want to be a mum – being a mother has always been my dream. Working with young kids makes me very happy.” Come New Year’s Eve, catch her at Mediacorp’s countdown pre-show.
