With his soothing voice and effortless singing style, you would think that veteran singer Eason Chan (陈奕迅) would have little difficulty mastering any song. But the Cantopop king seems to have met his match recently.
Eason Chan, who released a new song on 23 June, specially written for him by buddy Nicholas Tse (谢霆锋), told the media that he actually struggled to deliver the song.
Eason Chan said the ending part of the song, ‘Origin. Destination’ (起点终站) was so high-pitched, it was “humanly impossible” to sing. Since it was written by Tse, Chan added that the song rightfully embodied Tse’s style, so he tried to put himself in Tse’s shoes while singing it.
Tse admitted that the song was indeed challenging. “The notes are very high — not something a casual karaoke singer can master. It calls for someone who’s both theatrical and experienced,” Tse said.
