Gentle Bones said, “It’s been a great journey since I started my ‘Gentle Bones’ YouTube channel for acoustic covers back in 2010, and I couldn’t have asked for more in my last ever concert in Singapore. By the end of the year, Gentle Bones will no longer be performing or participating in any activities locally, and I’ll be officially retiring Gentle Bones in Singapore.”

The concert was also attended by Guest of Honour Minister for Culture Community and Youth & Second Minister for Law Edwin Tong SC, who noted ONERHT Foundation’s efforts to play a part in supporting an inclusive Singapore.

He said, “The Foundation has done good work over the years, to establish, inspire and encourage a philanthropic culture of giving back to the community among the corporate and legal fraternity.

Newly appointed Chairman of the Foundation, Ms Kaylee Kwok, said, “Music brings people together and we are pleased to have presented this charitable collaboration with local musicians for a good cause. In particular, we are very grateful to Gentle Bones for supporting this meaningful event.”

“The Foundation also marks a new chapter following its renaming to reflect its evolution as a common platform for corporate social responsibility and purposeful growth for ONERHT. With the strong support of the Foundation’s donors and sponsors, our Patron and Board of Directors, as well as management, lawyers and staff from across ONERHT, I will continue to advance the Foundation’s initiatives and programmes across its four core pillars of education, the environment and sustainability, disadvantaged groups, as well as the arts and sports,” she added.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to personally thank Mr Tan Chong Huat for his mentorship, guidance and encouragement during his tenure as Chairman of the Foundation,” said Ms Kwok.
