I’ve been singing since I was in Elementary. I was very shy then, that even my parents didn’t know that I can sing, until our neighbor who’s my school mate told my mom about my performance in school. People say that they love when I sing and play my guitar, but after witnessing how “real performers” do it… I realized that there’s still a lot to learn. Noridan people are amazing… as if there are no boundaries when they’re on stage.
We went to Haja Center in Yeongdungpo-gu Office, to audition for the Incheon International Airport Multi-cultural Choir.
Noridan, a social enterprise and a performing group partnered with Incheon Airport to form a choir consist of multi-cultural residents in South Korea. First of all, I am really impressed with the vision and purpose of Noridan. They use recycled materials as their instruments, they give jobs/ opportunities to people who can express themselves through music, performing or arts.
In Noridan, we met “Nongdam” (농담), in Korean, her name means “joke”. But her talent isn’t a joke at all. She’s unbelievable, she has a husky big voice, but her range is amazing , she can hit high notes, and her voice is very classy. Idol! 정말! She performs without hesitations, without any worries. no sign of nervousness. – something that I want to achieve someday. Perhaps they have mastered how to believe in their talent and be confident on stage while enjoying.
Thank you Ms. Zel Kim for these photos:
In terms of having a good time, I would like to thank the Noridan people for making us feel comfortable during the audition. It’s a pleasure to set foot on your prestigious stage. We wish you more success in creating awareness about your advocacy.
