Singapore singer Jeremy Teng, who recently won at Japanese singing competition Nodojiman the World, has managed to delay his National Service enlistment in order to audition in popular singing show, The Voice of China.
 
Teng, 20, announced this in a Facebook post on Thursday evening, where he said that his “re-appeal” via his Jurong MP and Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam, and emails to Defence Minister Dr Ng Eng Hen as well as Minister for Manpower Mr Tan Chuan Jin, have “paid off”.
 
The approval came after he failed in his first appeal.
 
While he might not be able to receive a full NS deferment, Teng, was asked to see if he could reschedule his enlistment date to the “last intake available within the year”. He seemed pleased with the new arrangement.
 
Teng, who will be buying his air tickets to Shanghai soon, informed his “concerned” fans that his audition for the singing show happens this Sunday.
 
Besides attaining glory for Singapore in the Japanese contest, Teng, who mainly sings English, Mandarin and Japanese pop music, has also won a string of other competitions since he was only 15. At that time, he had emerged as one of the top 10 among more than 2,000 contestants who competed in MediaCorp Channel U’s Campus Superstar 2009.
 
However, his achievements did not come without failures. In fact, he had lost eight out of ten contests in Singapore before attaining the Nodojiman the World champion title.
