Young people join ChildAid auditions to help others

About 40 children and teenagers turned up last Sunday to audition for the year-end ChildAid charity concert, co-organised by The Straits Times and The Business Times.

In groups or as individual performers, they sang and played musical instruments in front of a panel of eight judges, including 52-year-old show director Jeremiah Choy.
