editor’s letter

When you’re working on a monthly title, you celebrate each holiday way too early - it’s October and we’re working on Christmas! But it’s the one season I don’t mind having stretched over a couple of months. Christmas means many things to different people.

China stage and landing pop star Jay Chou as her mentor. This year’s answer to Nathan Hartono, Joanna may not have taken the top two spots, but she’s certainly No 1 with Singaporean fans who love her jazzy vibe and supported her through her Sing!
