If our two previous posts about Twestival KL’s celebrity fans are not enough to convince you to come by for an entertaining afternoon in support of a good cause, here are three more reasons – Liang, Elvira Arul and Ray Cheong! We’ve got quite a line up, folks. You don’t want to miss it.
Liang broke into the local entertainment scene with his talents in music but he is also well known for his hosting stints that include his very own TV show “Phat Rides” on 8tv and Malaysia’s premier entertainment portal, Gua.com.my. The multi talented artist and music teacher is the only male announcer/DJ at a woman’s station, Capital FM and an ambassador for StART Society. Follow him on Twitter @iamliang.
Elvira Arul is known as the “lady with a voice like no other”, and having played the role of Effie White in the Asian production of Dreamgirls speaks loudly to that. Having shared the stage with local living legends such as Lewis Pragasam, Andy Peterson and Ricky Omar, she almost made her name backing some of the most sought after local artistes including Sheila Majid, Jaclyn Victor and M. Nasir. The VIMA 2010 Best Female Vocalist is now the producer, stage manager and choral mistress at PIJF (Penang International Jazz Festival). Follower her on Twitter @ElviraSoul.
Ray Cheong, winner of DiGi Celebriteen 2006, is no stranger in the local music scene.

In our previous post, we introduced you to the three hosts of Twestival KL 2013. You would have been familiar with them already, all three have been supporting the Twestival movement right from the start!
In this post, we’d like to introduce to you another three personalities who are lending their name, time and talents to our cause. All will feature for the first time at a Twestival event.
Famed actress and model Carmen Soo (@carmensoo) will be performing a couple of songs at Twestival KL! The Malaysian beauty’s recent work included a supporting role in a Filipino film titled Alagwa (Breakaway). The film received several awards from Busan, Guam and Newport Beach Film Festival.

Vince Chong (@Vincechongmusic) kick started his music career after winning Akademi Fantasia in 2003, but not before emerging as first runner up at Astro Talent Quest in 2002. He later ventured into musicals, where he performed, among other shows, in the Asian version of High School Musical with Singapore’s Alicia Pan, The Philippines’ Nikki Gil and our very own Jaclyn Victor. He now does vocal coaching, music production and directing.
Born and raised in Penang, Chelsia Ng (@ChelsiaNg) is a singer/songwriter and an actress who loves Assam Laksa, her Daddy’s fried bee hoon and durians. She also loves puppies and kitties and believes in Unicorns and Dragons. Chelsia released her debut solo album, Here With You, just last week.
