When I was announcing the end of our performance, I said, "Love has no boundaries."
If you get to spend some time with Raja and Sin Hwee, who look as different as chalk and cheese, you'd feel the same way too.
When Raja began his thank-you speech, he freely admitted that he was well known among his friends to be "demanding and resistant to change." But change did happen, and he fell in love. "I finally found someone!" He announced jubilantly, and everyone applauded. "Someone who could accept me for who I am. Someone with whom I can share my life." At that point, I saw Sin Hwee squeezing Raja's hand a little tighter.
Sin Hwee and Raja's wedding was a celebration not only of love between the couple, but between both sides of the family, for it was obvious that they supported the marriage with open hearts and open minds.
The only answer to the questions that people inevitably ask when they see Raja and Sin Hwee together is simple: Love.
Bevlyn's thoughts: More Than Words
My horoscope did not warn me my tear ducts might be on duty today. I am a hopeless romantic, and when I sang Perfect Moment, Raja and Sin Hwee's march-in song, I actually choked a little due to overwhelming emotions. Sin Hwee revealed to us she had initially faced opposition from her family, but perhaps the stress and pressure were crucial in strengthening the binding love which has led them to that "perfect moment" on the red carpet.
Another tear-inducing event of the night was the speech made by the couple. Sin Hwee broke down a little when she thanked her mother for everything she had done for her, and said she had a song to dedicate to her. Sin Hwee gave us a nod, and the band starting to play 妈妈我爱你 (Mother, I Love You).
I have to admit that it was the most difficult song I ever had to deliver in all my years of singing, because the lyrics are so realistic and well-written that I was touched. With my nose a little blocked and voice a little hoarse, I garnered up all my spirit to SING!

Compliments from Sin Hwee:
Hi Hsin Yeow,
Once again, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Bevlyn and you, as well as the other 2 musicians for giving us an excellent performance on our wedding night. That night will be the most memorable moment that I will always remember in life.
With both of you singing for us on the joyous moment, it really lightened up the tension and stress that I was having. If I could ever have a chance, i will enjoy being a guest to listen to both of you singing. Cos on that evening, I did not have the opportunity to listen to every song.
Raja and I enjoyed the moments when we sat down to enjoy the food and listen to both of you singing.
We sincerely felt that your team were very professional and elegant. A Little Dream.....you made our dream come true. Thank you.
Some feedback from friends were:
1. "On one hand they don't seem to know both of you well, yet they were so professional"
2. Good and relaxed singing
3. Thought they were your friends who sang...but very good
4. Kept the tempo
PS: Bevlyn is very pretty and elegant.
All the best to everyone of you....
