Zheng Geping and Hong Huifang’s two kids are shaping up to be multi-talented artistes. Daughter Tay Ying, 25, is an actress and a dancer and has a black belt in Taekwondo too. 

Their son Calvert, 20, acts and is now a bona fide singer-songwriter.

Earlier this week, Calvert released his first English single, ‘Right Side’, which he describes as “a mix of R&B and city-pop”. The delightfully catchy tune is now available on major music streaming platforms. 

In a phone interview with 8days.sg, Calvert, who co-wrote and produced the song along with producer Juan shared more about his new release.

"Since I was very young, I’ve always been influenced by music. My sister and I started learning the piano from a young age, so music has always been a part of my life,” he said. 

Calvert, who lists Lauv and Japanese artistes like Kan Sano and [rock band] Monkey Majik as his musical inspirations, said the pandemic had something to do with his renewed interest in music.

"During the Circuit Breaker last year, there was a lot of alone time and it was then that I regained my passion for music," he said.

He was later approached by music school Academy of Rock to work on a song together. 

While Calvert declined to say how much the whole project cost, he did reveal that it was financed by Academy Of Rock.
