Daphne Khoo is another singer from Singapore. She was first spotted across television screens via Singapore Idol. She emerged as the second runner up for that competition. She hosted Idol-On-Demand soonafter. She was also seen in another local competition called 'The Dance Floor'.
She has released 4 singles and 1 album. She was also involved in a local television drama series called Shooting Stars.
Recently, she was spotted performing for several Starbucks events.
I sort of knew she wouldn't win as there were contestants who were much popular so I was glad that she at least got 2nd runner up. After the competition ended, though, I didn't hear from her for a good number of years. It was only recently that I found out she has a new EP out. It's called Wonderland and the title track is really good :) It's a song that really draws you in and showcases her voice, which is more solid now.
I feel like she has improved a lot since the competition several years back and is now a confident performer with real potential. I hope to purchase some of her music in the near future and will continue to support her and keep a look out for her performances, both online and off.
After a long period gone from the shores of Singapore, she has returned to the local music scene to rave reviews. While overseas, the exposure to different culture has shaped her tremendously and matured her immensely. She has even started to write her own music, which is not easy. I felt that her recently released EP was raw, full of emotion and a good reflection of her life journey. I was pleasantly surprised to see a Daphne Khoo completely unlike that of the Singapore Idol.
You can get her EP at Starbucks stores, and I do recommend getting it. Although it sounds a bit mainstream at times, I appreciate the effort and quality invested by this local talent. Can't wait to see what she'll get up to next.
