This pop star is breaking new ground in Singapore
A Singaporean pop star has released a heartbreaking music video for his cover of a Lady Gaga hit.
Duane Ho, 23, who shot to fame through Singapore Idol in 2009 recently covered Lady Gaga’s Million Reasons.
Now he has produced a provocative music video with aspiring filmmaker Kieran Cheang to go with his version of the song.
It tells the story of a guy with an abusive boyfriend.
The clip aims to raise awareness about rape in same-sex relationships.
‘The LGBT scene in Singapore is something that still isn’t widely or openly portrayed in media and from a personal standpoint, just because we don’t see or hear these stories doesn’t mean they cease to exist,’ Ho told Dear Straight People.
‘I hope for a conversation to begin between people and within oneself,
‘To discover and acknowledge why we react the way we do and possibly let go of past hurt in order to truly be set free.’
