Ten year old Julie Chae was chosen out of hundreds of applicants to sing on the soundtrack of The Monkey King,
a Chinese/Hong Kong film to be released at the end of January, 2014. Julie was identified as a possible choice by Emma Joleen, the Singing and Solfege Specialist for YOLA at HOLA. Julie has been participating in the YOLA at HOLA choir since she joined the program three years ago. When Emma was asked by her friend, film composer Christopher Young, she was thrilled to submit the audition tracks of several students, but Julie’s stood out. According to Christopher, “Julie has one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard.” Julie recently spent the day in the recording studio and is eagerly awaiting the film’s release. Congratulations Julie! We’re sure this isn’t the last we’ll hear about you.
