I Will Survive with Music – 10 August 2013

Following the book launch in May, a community reading session in June, and a successful Indiegogo campaign which raised funds to send more than 100 copies of the book to social service professionals working in the community, we now have a reading-cum-music session.

A limited number of copies of the book will be available for sale at the venue, and the editor would be delighted to sign autographs!

Date: 10 August 2013, Saturday

Time: 8:00pm – 9:30pm

Venue: Artistry, 17 Jalan Pinang (off Victoria Street), S 199149

Admission is free, sign up now at the Facebook event page.

More about, Lokies Khan, singer & performer:

Singing from the age of four, Lokies Khan’s love for music has always been prominent. He had a 5-month residential stint at Speakeasy,and has also performed in other well-known venues, including Home Club, NUSS Guild House, FIVE Izakaya bar, Temasek Club and Hatched. Influenced by a broad spectrum of music, he cites Alicia Keys, Ella Fitzgerald, Lana Del Rey & Christina Aguilera as his biggest influence in his artistry.

Lokies’ voice has often been described as unusually intriguing. With his versatility, he blows away with strength, mellows down low, demonstrates eccentrics with his range & softens with gentleness. And when he isn’t singing, he moonlights as a DJ.

This event has been granted an Arts Entertainment Licence by the Media Development Authority (MDA), with a rating of R18 (Homosexual theme).

Afternote: Here is a video clip taken from the event, where I introduce Lokies, followed by his performance of Gloria Gaynor’s disco classic “I Will Survive”.
