LIKE AN INNOCENT CHILD
心如赤子

如果每個人的聲音都代表一種東西,那麼陳慧敏Vivian的歌聲就是一泓清徹的泉水,潺潺地流過我們的心田。這趟夢想征途殊不簡單,然而Vivian一直懷着赤子之心,憑藉不懈的努力,終於在香港舉行首個個人演唱會—《我們叫傻瓜》。是次演唱會在旺角麥花臣場館圓滿結束,Vivian貫徹她傻氣的形象,換來觀眾的掌聲和熱淚。今期Chessman Post將和大家一起重拾當晚的溫馨片段。

讓歌聲滿載共鳴
雖然Vivian個子長得不高,但她的聲音清脆響亮,有莫大的感染力。總是以笑臉迎人的Vivian,在圈中有不少知心好友,其中小肥更為演唱會揭開序幕,率先獻唱一曲,為她打了一支強心針。她自言這次演唱的曲目,其實是人生的一個小紀錄。在港澳兩地,想做一位長青的歌手絕非輕而易舉之事,可是她仍然本着「我盡力唱 只想你欣賞」的信念,堅持做自己想做的音樂。在《小人物》和《航道》兩首歌中,Vivian用淡然纖細的歌聲,道盡了每個追夢者的心聲。人生路上,誰沒有經歷過風霜?只是在最後,我們定能見到璀璨燈火。比起CD和YouTube,在現場聽她唱歌,確實可感受到她對音樂的滿腔熱誠。每句歌詞都是她的回憶,也是你與我的經歷。誠如《童話的歲月》中的一句,Vivian對於音樂和唱歌的愛從沒變改,就像如初的她。

有一種友情 叫巨星幫
正值二十那年,Vivian隻身來到香港參加「超級巨星」比賽,開展了她的音樂旅程。一路走來,她試過傷心,也試過灰心,但慶幸與一班「巨星幫」好朋友互相扶持。這次演唱會中的兩位嘉賓,就是許廷鏗和林欣彤。Vivian在台上向許廷鏗真情表白,感謝他一直義不容辭地支持她,然後一同高唱《青春頌》。而全晚最感人的環節,就是Vivian播出林欣彤的打氣whatsapp,令會場頓然瀰漫着一股暖意。聽後,二人以同一張紙巾拭乾淚水,繼而公開為對方所作的歌曲,其姊妹情深,不用旁人花唇舌去解釋。她倆更以淚眼相約,八十歲時仍要一起到公園談笑風生。

屬於她的四面台
《慧敏歌》是Vivian人生所寫的第一首歌,當中一句「志要作歌手 梗會有想過 演唱會有四面台 我去開」,今日終能如願以償。演唱會步入尾聲前,她站在會場正中間唱出《慧敏歌》,與觀眾拉近距離,掀起全場高潮。首個四面台是Vivian人生中非常重要的里程碑,願她能站在更多的四面台,分享音樂的喜悅。因為,樂壇正需要一個如斯熱愛音樂的傻瓜。

If one’s voice represents a particular thing, then the voice of Vivian Chan is the crystal clear spring water that gently trickles down our hearts. This dream-chasing journey has been grueling, but Vivian has made it through and become a well-known singer because of her innocence and hard work. Her first concert in Hong Kong was held in MacPherson Stadium. Let us throwback to all the soul-stirring moments in the concert.

Her Voice Echoes
Although Vivian looks like a small girl, she is endowed with a bright, clear voice that can powerfully influence others. With a cheerful personality, she has a lot of good friends in the music industry, including Siu Fay, who kicked off the concert by singing a song. Vivian herself also said the songs presented in the concert were the records of her life. It is not easy to stay famous in the music industry, but she still persists in the belief that “I sing my best, wish to be praised” and continues to sing what she wants. In the songs “Nobody” and “Fairway”, she uses her soothing and delicate voice to express every dreamer’s inner thoughts. Who doesn’t have hardships in their lives? Yet, at the end of the day, we will have a bright future as we keep chasing our dreams. Listening to her songs in the live concert is way better than on YouTube or CDs, since we are able to witness and feel her passion for music directly with our own ears. All the lyrics of her songs are part of her memories; and these are what we might be experiencing too. Just as what is expressed in “Years of Fairy Tale”, Vivian’s passion for music has never changed.

We Are The Voice
At the age of 20, Vivian came to Hong Kong by herself and participated in “The Voice”, the singing competition broadcast by TVB. In the path to becoming a professional singer, she has once felt discouraged. But the friends she met in the competition always give her moral support. Two of the guests in the concert are her friends from “The Voice”—they are Alfred Hui and Mag Lam. Vivian made a sincere confession to Alfred and thanked him for being supportive all the way. After that, they sang “Youth Anthem” together, which perked the audiences up. The most touching part in the concert was when Vivian disclosed a Whatsapp audio from Mag. Both of them burst into tears after listening to the audio. Having gone through tough times together, they have become best friends that would write songs for each other. They also made a promise to have chit-chats in the park when they are 80 years old.

The Bespoke Four-sided Stage
In “Song of Vivian”, the first song that she wrote, Vivian dreamed of having a live concert on a four-sided stage. Her dream has literally come true. She performed on a special four-sided stage to sing “Song of Vivian” that night, which was the main highlight in the concert. This four-sided stage is an important milestone to Vivian’s singing career. We hope that Vivian will perform on more and more four-sided stages to share the joy of music in the coming future. The music industry is in need of a silly people who is passionate about music like her.
