Malaysian Singer Proud To Showcase 1Malaysia To The World

SEPANG (Malaysia), Sept 27 (Bernama) -- Back from her success in Shanghai, China where she won the Asian Wave 2012 competition recently, singer Shila Amzah, whose full name is Nur Shahila Amir Amzah, is determined to achieve bigger success for herself and Malaysia at the international level. What makes the country very proud of her is that she chose to showcase the 1Malaysia concept by singing three songs in different languages, namely local singer Jaclyn Victor's "Gemilang", "Grenade" by Bruno Mars and "Zheng Fu" by popular Chinese singer Na Ying, in the competition final. Speaking to reporters after arriving at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) here on Wednesday, Shila said the three songs were chosen to showcase her talent, as well as the beauty, uniqueness and harmony of multiracial Malaysia, which captivated the audience. "1Malaysia really suited my performance that day. It was a colourful performance, afterall Malaysia is full of colours. "I feel so honoured to have won the competition, and grateful for the talent I have been gifted with," said the 22-year-old, who has been in the industry for 12 years. The competition was also participated by finalists from China, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand and India. Shila who went to a Chinese school during her first two years at primary level, has won many new fans, especially among the Chinese both in China and Malaysia after her perfect rendition of the Mandarin song. She has received a few offers from China but has not made any decision on these yet. Following her success, she has advised that in whatever profession, people need to be patient and persevere as success may take a little longer for some. Shila's father, a popular singer known as ND Lala in the 1980's, said the success in the competition was not just for her but for all Malaysians. He said Shila deserved the win as she had worked very hard for the competition. (photoBERNAMA) MALAYSIA
