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.
