SINGAPORE – Their moves may not land them a K-pop gig, but their determination won hearts.
Veteran local actresses Aileen Tan, Chen Xiuhuan and Pan Lingling attempted an energetic performance where they danced to K-pop girl group Blackpink’s 2017 hit song, Boombayah, at the President’s Star Charity show on Sunday.
They were joined by actresses Dhivyah Raveen and Endang Rahayu, as well as Mediacorp’s young talent Tay Ying, Denise Camillia Tan, Hazelle Teo and Kayly Loh. The nine of them popped and locked to rally the public to donate funds in aid of vulnerable groups in Singapore.
Pan, 53, wrote on Instagram before the show: “We may not have the K-pop moves down yet, but our determination is unwavering.
“We’re taking the stage for a good cause and we promise to give it our all. Join us in making a difference by supporting needy families for a brighter tomorrow.”
Aileen Tan, 57, and Chen, 58, took to Instagram to encourage their followers to donate too.
The show also featured performances from Indonesia-born artiste Anggun and Singapore Idol Taufik Batisah, and President Tharman Shanmugaratnam and his wife Jane Ittogi read the poem Never Let Go alongside local poet Stephanie Fam, who has cerebral palsy.
