In the true spirit of this festival, we have brought together some amazing people, many of whom don't know each other, from Singapore, France and the UK, who will entertain you with some well-known tracks. And joining them for one song will be special guest, singer-songwriter, Katie Melua. They will prove that no matter what the distance, the skill-set or their own preferences in music, people with a will to succeed can collaborate to achieve great things.

With thanks to Christal Kuna, Sound Engineering
