God reignites and revives a lost passion in ways Kylie could never imagine. Check out her story.

神透過Kylie 想不到的方法重燃和復興了一股失去了的熱誠。來看看她的故事吧!

I’m a musical actress and have been vocalist for the past 6 years, as well as TV presenter for a few years. In 2007, I even came close to using up my savings for voice and theatre training in Paris.

Following my last stage of acting in Japan in 2008, I began singing in the pop arena, appearing on shows every week and occasionally on TV. At that time, you could say, singing was in my genes. I could sing any song just by hearing it 3 times.

But one day, my interest in singing vanished. I just stopped, lost all confidence to sing and even refused to listen to any music.

I even started swing dancing because I could stay silent on dance floor. But then again, how does one dance without music? I listened to jazz every time I danced. There were many live bands and big band concerts. Soon enough, music was in my mind again.

Over the past 2 years, I had been constantly praying, “God, sorry that I lost confidence in the ability that you gave me. I believe you will put me on stage when you think I’m ready, and I would like to start singing with a big band when you say I can. Amen.”

And now, I’m here to tell you – how great is our God!

In 2010, I got a chance to sing one song with the Beijing Big Band in China. Then, just last week, after a year and a half, I was finally invited to sing Fever and Autumn Leaves with a brand new orchestra in the first-ever Youth Big Band Fest in Hong Kong. But I was faced with a challenge: I had never sung these two songs before and both were in a low key that was not within my ideal vocal range.

However, as a Christian, we should always embrace the challenges God allows to come our way. For me, this meant I could explore and learn more through the difficulties. I practiced every day for more than 3 weeks, recorded the rehearsals and made revisions. The support from all the professional musicians was amazing, the conductor taught me about Big Band Jazz and friends taught me the groove. I started to sing as a newbie again.

In addition, as an Emcee of the concert, I researched the facts of every song that every orchestra played. Today, I know at least 20 of the songs. I believe this was all also part of God’s orchestration. Why? Who knows? GOD Knows!

Never know how much I love you
Never know how much I care

This is what I sing to God!

我是一位音樂劇演員,在過去的6年我也是一位歌手,我也當過幾年的電視節目主持人。在2007年,我甚至幾乎把我的所有積儲都用在巴黎的聲學及演技訓練上。

2008年,我在日本最後的演戲階段過後,我開始在流行歌曲的舞台上唱歌,每個禮拜都參與演出,偶爾也上上電視。當時,你可以說,歌唱根本是在我的基因裡。我不認識的歌曲只要給我聽三次,我就懂唱了。

但有一天,我對歌唱的興趣突然消失了。我當下就停下來,我失去我對歌唱的所有信心並拒絕聽任何音樂。

我甚至開始跳搖擺舞,因為我在舞池上可以保持沈默。不過話說回來,跳舞怎會沒有音樂呢? 我每次跳舞的時候都會聽著爵士樂。那裡有著很多現場表演的樂隊以及著名樂隊的音樂會。沒多久,音樂又出現在我的腦海了。

在過去的兩年,我不間斷地禱告說:“神,對不起,我對祢給我的能力失去信心。我相信當祢覺得我準備好的時候,祢會再次把我放在舞台上,而當祢覺得我可以的時候,我想開始跟一支大樂隊一起唱歌。阿門。”

現在,我站在這裡告訴祢-我們的神太偉大了!

2010年,我有機會在中國跟北京大樂團唱一首歌。然後,就上個禮拜, 一年半後,我終於被邀請跟一隊全新的管弦樂團在香港第一屆青年爵士大樂隊節合作演唱“Fever”和“Autumn Leaves”。可是,我面對著一個困難:我從來沒有唱過那兩首歌,而且兩首歌都在我理想音域以外的低音區。

然而,身為基督徒,我們應該常常擁抱神允許衝著我們來的考驗。對我來講,這表示我可以探索未知的領域以及從困難中學習更多。我在三個多禮拜裡每天練習、把彩排錄音並作出改良。來自所有專業音樂家的支持真的很棒,音樂指揮教了我關於大樂隊爵士樂的種種,而朋友們則教會我爵士節拍。我像一位新手一樣從新開始唱歌。

除此以外,身為音樂會的主持人,我研究了管弦樂團彈奏的每一首歌的資料。今天,我認識最少20首歌。我相信這全都是神的指揮的一部份。為甚麼?誰知道?神知道!

從來不知道我有多愛祢
從來不知道我有多在意

這就是我對神唱的歌!
