The House Shout for the boarding houses becomes more impressive every year. In fact, this year, the Prep School Houses of Iskandar and Taylor were so incredibly impressive that they tied, another first for the singing competitions at MCM! The songs performed by Iskandar and Taylor were Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’, and Imagine Dragon’s ‘Thunder’ respectively.
The Senior Houses chose some incredibly powerful songs this year. Wills began the competition with ‘Hooked on a feeling’ by Blue Swede; Steel House was next with ‘Believer’, another Imagine Dragons song; next up was Honan with ‘Like a Prayer’ by Madonna; and to round off the evening we heard a wonderfully rousing rendition of ‘Waving Flag’ by K’naan. Honan was declared the winner for the fourth consecutive year – the fifth win in the six years that the competition has been running.
A huge thank you must go to Mr Morrill and his crew who provided some exceptional lighting for both events. And of course, our thanks go to our esteemed adjudicator, Michelle Poh, who spent time away from a very busy schedule in Singapore’s Jazz Music scene to be with us for the afternoon.
