Hope you are all doing well. Many of you must be getting busy preparing for Christmas and holiday season this year. I would like to wish you all the best for Christmas and the holiday season.
I have written and recorded a few songs for my new album due to be released on February 14th next year. I have also been busy finalizing the album as they include many of the songs that have been released so far but with fresh mix and mastering. You will hear the difference soon!
One of the songs I recorded recently called “Unforgettable”. This song was inspired by the arrival of new babies in many of my friends and family’s lives. A baby is like a symbol of hope for many and I captured this inspiration in this happy song.
I have also recorded a cover song which was written by Dana Paul Robinson, an American gentleman who approached me personally and asked me to consider singing one of his songs. It was quite an honour and privilege for me to have this opportunity.
So far dozens of radio stations are playing my Dusty Springfield cover song in Europe and North America. I welcome your feedback and suggestions of which songs that I have released should be promoted on my next radio promotion.
Once again Merry Christmas and happy holiday to you all my fans and I will speak to you all in the new year.
For those of you who may be wondering why Andrew's Facebook page is no longer there, here is the answer...
Andrew has decided not to have a Facebook page at this time as it is so hard to navigate on Facebook with very limited vision. Even with various visual aid and software, it is still a huge task to do for him. He would spend 4 to 5 times longer than people with normal vision just to navigate and post something on Facebook. It is a hard decision but it is probably the best for now.
The page might be re-launched in the future if situation permits. Andrew would like to apologize to any fans & others who enjoy to interact with him via Facebook who no longer be able to do so. However, you could still do so here on the website if you need to. Thank you for your understanding.
I recently finished the song “Being Human”. This song was inspired by the dynamics of human relationships that I observe all around me. All of us humans, we need each other…However, sometimes along the way in our lives, we can make mistakes. We learn from our mistakes. We will experience up and down in many aspects of our lives also. Sometimes we are on the high, sometimes we are on the low…
Whatever it is that we are experiencing right now, it is part of being human living on this Earth. I am not trying to be philosophical about this, but sometimes we tend to ignore this reality of life until such time when something will remind us back to this realization.
This song is about “sharing” experiences and realization and hope for a better future. You will be able to listen to this song soon!
Recently I recorded a new song titled "Goodbye is Not Forever". This song represents some aspects of my story. I lost my father and brother a number of years ago, then followed by other family, relatives and friends who passed away in different circumstances. The latest ones were the death of my brother-in-law and a lady-friend of mine. Both were caused by cancer in late 2015.
Even if I could mention, I have also lost a number of pets over the years. Dogs and cats that I loved so dearly. Some were old and sick, the others died in tragic accidents, etc. I still miss them all until now...both people and animals.
When I did the recording for my vocals for this song, I had to stop a few times because I couldn't control myself from the emotion. Tears running down from my eyes. My producer Greg really noticed this in my vocal performance and he gave his compliments saying that it was my best vocal performance yet. Although I wasn't thinking about that at all during the recording. I was just so into the lyrics of the song that moved me so much.
I am sure many of you may have similar situation in your own lives. This song is not only about losing someone you love because of death. This song has a universal message about losing someone you love in any circumstances but still keeping the hope that we will meet them again one day.For the time being, life goes on and we all have to carry on with our lives...
