The final of “Voice of SHEAC”, co-organised by the Social Activity and Communication Working Groups of the SHEAC House Association, was successfully held on the evening of 6th November. Having qualified from the preliminary round, the final eight contestants were very talented, each with their own characteristics. The judging panel included College Master Prof. Iu Vai Pan, Fellow and Associate Professor of the Faculty of Science and Technology Prof. Angus Lam Chi Chiu, and student singer Sally Li Jingyi.
This competition consisted of two parts: the first part is an one-on-one elimination system where two contestants compete with each other, making a final four compete in the second part. The first contestant Sun Hongyi kicked off with a song named Mercury Records, and his opponent Hilton Chon steadily sang Those Very Adventurous Dreams of Yours. The second pair of contestants Pat Ng and Shirley Xiao presented two totally different styles, Pat’s Endless was powerful, while Shirley’s Curry Curry with dancing was very delightful. The third pair Herman Chiang and Winnie Ma respectively sang Cruel Moonlight which was melodious, and I Don’t Care which was very passionate. The last two contestants Iong Wai Sim and Shelby Lao each singing two different songs to further heat up the atmosphere.
Based on the three judges’ votes, Hilton, Herman, Shirley and Wai Sim made to the final round of competition. Hilton sang The Wrong Person which tended to bring back a lot of memories to the audience. Herman’s Wonderful Tonight created an imaginative space conjured in the minds of the audience. Shirley’s We Sleep Together was gentle but vivid. Iong Wai Sim’s Silence offered a perfect ending to the competition.
After three judges’ comments and discussions, together with the poll of the audience, Hilton won the championship. Everyone enjoyed a wonderful night.
