Olympic medallists Liu Ying and Jun Hoong switch roles to sing ‘Herstory’


PETALING JAYA: Olympic silver medallist Goh Liu Ying (pic) and diving world champion Cheong Jun Hoong have taken up the mike to sing for a good cause.

They have teamed up with singer Nicole Lai and actress Mawar Rashid for a powerful rendition of the theme song “Herstory” in conjunction with the charity organisation Herstory’s women’s health and wellness day on March 3.

Athletes M. Thinaah (badminton) and Tan Cheong Min (wushu) will also join the movement in promoting the importance of women’s health and wellness.

The song advocates the charity’s slogan of “Love, Care and Speak”.

Combining English, Chinese, and Malay, the song was produced by Keon Chia, a Golden Melody Award and Golden Horse Award winner. The former greats Liu Ying and Jun Hoong hope to advocate for women’s health and wellness through this song.

Said Liu Ying:, “I actually quite like singing, but singing in the recording studio is a different experience.”

“Fortunately, the producer Keon didn’t put too much pressure on us and patiently guided us.

“I’m eagerly anticipating the final version of ‘Herstory’ because, to me, it’s a very powerful and meaningful song.”

Jun Hoong echoed Liu Ying’s sentiment.

“Singing is a new adventure for me, so I approached this process with a playful attitude. Perhaps because I’m not a professional singer, so there’s minimal pressure on whether I sing well or not,” she said.

“Herstory is both catchy and heartfelt, and I hope it will resonate with everyone.”

In line with Herstory’s spirit to promote self-love, self-exploration, and women’s health and wellness without reservation, the Herstory Fitfest x GLY three-on-three badminton tournament will take place at Sports Hub in Austin Heights, Johor Baru from March 2-3.

The registration for the tournament closes on Feb 25.
