As a performer myself, several reasons why I would be interested in the article......
1. I knew these girls. These girls were like me, started out as gig performers albeit they started way....way... earlier & younger. I recall seeing them, together with their parents at events, mostly at Family day events when they were just half this age.
2. Their dedicated parents provided them all kinds of lessons and preparations one can concievably imagine.....hip hop dance, singing, violn, dance, gymnastics.....so their performances were amazingly "variety" in nature.
3. I'm happy that the parents' efforts paid off, because it was clear where they were steering the girls towards. Secretly, I'm sure many people are jeolous, I would be if I were at that age. It was like a case of an Asian making of a Britney Spears or Christina aguilera unfolding. Just hope they end up more like the latter than the former.
But I won't blame people who are not in my line to understand. So to the blog author, this was my comment :
"As an (old) artiste myself, I applaud the parents for it. I know it does not sound right but really such opporuntities don't come by often or at all (I never had, that's why I'm still only a gig performer at some grand old age). That is if the girls are really ready for it. I happen to know the girls and the mum and they were really dedicated in steering towards this. Whether right or wrong only the girls will know at later part of the lives."
