Shine together with lasers and kinetic lights

Shine together

The theme for this year’s President Star Charity was aptly entitled “Shine Together”. Hosted by Chua Enlai and Glenda Chong, it was an event where artistes were illuminated by the spectacular light-up in the MES Theatre at Mediacorp.

Kinetic lights

Mediacorp artiste Zoe Tay performed a solo item and danced with kinetic light spheres, a first in a television performance. Zoe’s costume was specially designed by in-house designer, Leong Yaowen with the kinetic lights system in mind.

A kinetic light system is a unique LED lighting system that enables a perfect blend of lighting and movement. Supported by Highlights System, a total of 135 light spheres were installed. Rehearsals with the light spheres only began 4 days before the show and mistakes were made during the rehearsals. However, with strong determination, Zoe persevered and delivered a beautiful show in the end.
