SINGAPORE – Do you still remember what your childhood aspiration? An astronaut? A doctor? A dancer? Alan Fong, the youngest busker in Singapore, dreams to become a successful singer.

Alan first fell in love with performing when he was only six. His mother brought him to a karaoke restaurant where his singing won the audience’s hearts and received a roar of applause.

This fueled Alan’s passion for singing and performing in front of others.

The Problem

Alan’s journey has not exactly been smooth-sailing.

He was eight when he first sang on the streets. The result? He received a stern warning by the police for performing without a license.

Alan went on to apply for the license, but failed the audition, as he was unaware of the requirement to perform with at least one musical instrument.

In order to fulfil his dream, Alan took up guitar lessons at a music school.

Finally, at the young age of nine, Alan was awarded the license and deemed certified to busk. He became the youngest busker in Singapore and was one step closer to achieving his dream.

The Dream

Undoubtedly, Alan aspires to become a singer, but what is his dream at the moment? Alan gleefully exclaimed, “If there were more people who could come and hear me sing, I would be even happier!”

After some pondering, Host Ken Low decided to source for an upcoming large-scale event to let Alan shine his talent.

The Question

Alan has never performed on stage before. Can he live up to expectations and deliver a spectacular performance in front of over 8000 people? The team also made special arrangement for Alan’s idol to boost his morale prior the event. Who is he? Watch the video to find out.
