With the rise of social media, sharing bits of our personal lives has never been easier.
If you’re a millennial, you’re probably familiar with the wonders of live streaming apps such as Instagram Live, YouNow, and Periscope. Maybe you’re even a live streamer yourself!
While each is unique in its own way, our favourite for discovering local talent has to be BeLive.
BeLive is a local live streaming app, and some great undiscovered talents are on there, streaming their performances. Think of it as busking – but online.
Here are some of the talents you should keep your eye – and ear – out for on the app!
You Better BeLive Their Talents
With 9.1K subscribers on YouTube, Yokez is an independent singer-songwriter and keyboardist with an incredibly impressive portfolio.
She mainly covers Chinese songs and sings a mean cover of “Let’s Not Be Friends In Future” by Eric Chou. Yokez is always chatty on stream and bursts into songs that are mentioned by the people watching her livestream.
Always funny, always entertaining.

2. Marcus Lee Jun Wei
Marcus was the 2nd runner-up in Campus Superstar 2 and also the lead frontman of indie rock band “Exdee”. He is also the lead singer of the 3-piece acoustic group “Footprint” and also currently under the mentorship of local rapper Shigga Shay.
Being a versatile performer, Marcus covers a wide range of genres from pop, jazz and rock, to ballads and 90’s classics.
You can listen to him cover both English and Chinese songs on his streams. His cover of “Back At One” by Brian McKnight has us melting.

3. Veekher Wong
With 5.5K followers on BeLive, Veekher is not a stranger to livestreaming.
She enjoys performing English and Chinese songs on BeLive. We love her cover of Jay Chou’s “Love Confession” with Yokez. She’s also friends with Marcus Lee and he usually shows up in her streams.
Veekher usually streams at least once a week on BeLive as she enjoys how interactive the app is, compared to Facebook Live or Instagram.

4. Delvina See
Delvina performs at *SCAPE with her siblings as a group known as thez3n. Their vocal harmony really shines in their rendition of “A Little Happiness” by Hebe Tian.
She has also been streaming on BeLive since 1 September 2016 and streams regularly to just hang out and chat with her viewers or sing.
Singing and chilling, sounds like a friday night at your favourite bar.

5. Sophia Tay
Sophia is an aspiring singer-songwriter who sings both English and Chinese songs and also busks along the stretches of Orchard and Somerset.
If you’re lucky, you might even catch her streaming live from some of her gigs!
We love that she does the mouth trumpet thing that Nathan Hartono does as well.

6. Brendon Chua
Did you know Brendon is the frontman of the local Alternative band, “The Façade“?
He also streams alone on BeLive, jamming and singing and it’s really vibey. He covers English songs, though he spends most of his time strumming on his guitar. We’re not complaining though, he’s a sight for sore eyes.
You can also check out his band’s YouTube covers here.

7. Chow Jia Hui
Jia Hui started streaming on BeLive since 6 July and sings regularly on her streams. She enjoys singing and performing and BeLive provides a platform for her to interact with other users with the same interests.
Also, she does mean acoustic renditions of Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, and James Arthur.
So if you’re looking for a hilarious streamer with a wicked sense of humour and great music, don’t miss out on Jia Hui’s livestreams!

8. Tessa Lee
Tessa enjoys doing covers and regularly shares snippets of her covers on Instagram and Instastories but took to BeLive to be able to stream and perform live.
We are obsessed with her cover of “Rockabye” by Clean Bandit and “Location” by Khalid.
She streams quite regularly so don’t miss out on her acoustic renditions of hit songs!
Performing LIVE at: @tessawoohoo
With these talented musicians streaming and performing on BeLive, don’t say Singapore has no talent.
Catch these performers live on stream and if you like them, leave them some gifts!
