Client Testimonials for Live Vocal Performances, Corporate Hosting/Emcee and Panel Hosting




vocals, live performance & songwriting

Sarah's warm, deep vocals and wide vocal range allows her to change atmospheres through her live performances, especially as a jazz singer but also in performing her original jazz, pop & R&B songs in both Chinese and English at large scale corporate events.

“I first spotted Sarah at Orgo, where she performed. Drawn by the quality of her voice, I approached her to see if she could perform for an award ceremony gala dinner which I was organising. No regrets for doing that because she delivered a captivating upbeat jazz performance for the Emerging Enterprise Awards 2012, held at the Fullerton Hotel in June this year. Young lady but her voice was superb. I would recommend her if you are looking out for classy acts.” 

— Moira Ann, Previously Associate Director of Marketing at OCBC Bank

hosting & panel moderation for corporate events

With depth and breadth of experience in multiple industries of business, technology, arts, culture, music and media, coupled with her stage presence and national radio-presenter background — Sarah is right at home whether it is panel moderation or hosting large scale corporate events.

“British Council Singapore engaged Sarah Cheng-De Winne to be the moderator for the Musicity Forum Event held at ArtScience Museum on 26 May 2012.

We were delighted with Sarah’s moderation of the panel discussion. Her questions and comments were appropriate and maintained a clear flow of thought. Sarah kept the discussions focused whilst simultaneously allowing the speakers to express themselves spontaneously in reaction to comments that emerged from the panel and the floor. She engaged comments from the floor in a very well-balanced way. Sarah projects her voice very well and presents herself very professionally.

“We would be very pleased to work with Sarah in the future and would recommend her for moderation or presentation roles.” 

— Sarah Meisch, Director of Arts and Creative Industries, British Council

— Kristine Lauria, Failcon 2012

“Sarah was amazing as Emcee for FailCon, a 300 person conference in downtown Singapore. She has a great energy on stage and kept the day moving forward - thanks to her creativity and spontaneity. It was our first time hiring an Emcee and she knew exactly what to ask from us, and how to execute. I couldn't recommend her more highly!”
