FACING a 400-strong congregation and backed by the professional Cantus Musicus choir, 14-year-old Joshua Edward Raj William confidently rendered the first verse of Christmas carol Once In Royal David’s City.

In a clear sweet voice, the lad completed his small yet significant solo part with finesse before assistant music director Colin Day turned to the crowd, gesturing to them to stand up and sing the remaining verses with the Kuala Lumpur-based choir.
