Spent a lovely evening at her concert with my girlfriend Alina. I personally enjoy her genre of songs - soothing and emotive. It's quite similar to Olivia Ong, whom I enjoying listening to as well. The enchanting relaxed evening was filled with her unique vocals amidst the lush outdoors setting. We had the perfect view of Marina Bay Sands on our left and the stage setup right infront of us. Blessed.

The Crowd
Didn't except that we had to seat picnic-style on the grass, but it was quite an experience doing that while watching Corrinne perform live under the sky and stars. Thankfully, they provided ponchos (in case of rain), so instead, we used them as our mats and laid them down.

while waiting for her to start!


She sang her signature hits such as “Fly Away”, “Save Me”, “Everything in Its Time”, as well as new hit “Beautiful Life” from her latest album, “Crooked Lines”. She mentioned that "Crooked Lines" was inspired by her daughter's drawings and I thought that was really sweet yet creative.

Could tell she's quite a seasoned performer and that she's comfortable with her band backing her up on stage. Oh did you know! Her husband, Kavin, is part of her band, he's on the Piano!

Hype the Crowd!

What I like about her songs really is the lyrics - Meaningful lyrics that we all can relate too since it's inspired by real life situations and people. What a talented lady, she handwrote all her songs! There were many songs from her albums that I actually was seating there waiting for her to sing. Sadly, I didn't hit jackpot that night. Many of her songs were new and some of which I have never heard before. But it's all good, because ever since she sang them, some are now my favourites

Oh! Halfway through, there were fireworks (thanks to the NDP rehearsals) during the concert, but instead of letting it interfere with her soothing music, she smartly made used of it and included them into her concert by talking about it like how the fireworks were specially for her etc. The crowd just cheered along with her songs and little jokes here and there.


Probably inspired by the fireworks, she ended off the night with our National Day 2010 theme song, 'Song for Singapore'. It's been a long time since I heard that song, so I was quite happy and sang along with her  ٩(^‿^)۶

After the concert, Alina & I took a trail walk around Gardens by the Bay since we're already there.

Unauthorised Climbing Session! It was quite a feat ok!

We almost got lost while trying to get out of the place. The night factor played a part  ๏̯͡๏  Thankfully with the help of some kind souls, we managed to see the exit leading to Marina Bay Sands. Took a bus and we headed off to Supper afterwhich!
