Dawn Ho
Dawn Ho , a jazz / bossa and samba singer hailing from Singapore, who has also performed in Indonesia, Malaysia and Hong Kong, began her informal training in singing at the tender age of 8 with The Amazing Grace Presbyterian church choir in Singapore.

Her unique vocal timbre makes her a natural in doing jazz / bossa nova and samba numbers. Her music has been described as sophisticated, elegant and vibrant. After 10 years of training and performing the classical and choral genre, Dawn decided to follow her passion for jazz.

She quit her job as a flight stewardess for Singapore Airlines in 2003 to commit her time and energy into singing full-time, engaged vocal trainer Babes Conde (Philippines/Singapore) for jazz and pop vocal training and has not looked back since .Her hunger to understand and better execute her craft led her to New York for classes with Tania Travers, and the legendary Barry Harris in 2006. She also attended a Master class with Grammy award winning jazz vocalist, Kurt Elling.

She is currently preparing for the release of her debut album, All in Good Time. This album sees her performing exciting covers of jazz classics from Thelonious Monk, Cole Porter, Cannonball Adderley as well as Brazilian classics from the likes of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Maria Rita. It also features 2 track remixes done by producers Kaye and Munir Alsagoff(Alter Copy).
