MICappella's Album Launch Press Conference & Listening Party

Since their debut album <Here We Go> released three years ago, local vocal band MICappella have never stopped making waves in the music scene with their consistent release of creative mashup cover videos. With a change of the band’s lineup, MICappella took a full three years to finally release their sophomore album <MICappella Reloaded>.

Compared to their debut album, the new album comprises of almost all original songs written by all members of the band, demonstrating that they are more than just a cover band. <MICappella Reloaded> signifies the band’s brand new identity as singer-songwriters as they embarked on a new journey with two new members, Kexin (soprano) and Mingwei (bass).

The album launch press conference was held on 26th May at Avalon Singapore, where the skyline of the city can be seen as the one on the album cover.  The band shared the process and their thoughts of finally able to pen their original songs that represent who they are, and share their stories and messages to the world. MICappella showcased two songs, namely their first hit single 'One of These Days' and their second hit single 'Love'. These two contrasting songs demonstrated the band’s perfect harmonies and abilities to control their individual vocals in both an upbeat song and a slow tune.

The highlight of the press conference is the official announcement of the signing of MICappella to Universal Music Group worldwide. The band were joined on stage by Mr Kenny Ong, Managing Director of Universal Music Singapore and Malaysia, to declare the official signing. With a new recording contract from a major label, MICappella is set on a fresh direction and creative in their music, and is determined to deliver more content to new audience in different countries around the world.

In the evening, MICappella held the album launch listening party at the very same venue. The venue was packed with fans, and friends and family members of MICappella who came down to lend their support to the band’s sophomore album launch.
