A tribute to Nicole 黎珈仪

| Posted in | Posted on



Nicole Lai has passed away last Sat. A greatly respected and beloved vocal teacher I have known since my days at LWS for 7years, she never fails to smile everytime I see her. She indeed brightens up every room she steps in; bring hope, joy and love to everyone around her.

Having the privilege to have had lessons with her and to also teach alongside with her at OB, I am greatly saddened by her departure.. She will always be remembered by many of us in the music industry. We love you Nicole.

但让她非常遗憾的是,她的专辑出版时,发现公司(M5 Royal Music) 未全力配合,甚至她的专辑也未能全面发行,让她非常伤心。

黎珈仪的遗体,目前停柩在金殿路(Kim Tiam Road)大牌129A,订于星期三出殡。

Nicole has left us with her beautiful voice recorded in her album. Despite the lack of marketing for the album, I hope that her music will live on. If you would like to have her album, please email me: sherlyn.vocal@gmail.com
