Changi Airport is home to passengers of all nationalities and ages. So we needed to find a singer that could represent our international appeal, as well as express the childlike joy of being at home. A task made more difficult by the fact that the child’s voice needed to be powerful and clear. We finally found the perfect blend in a boy soprano from Australia. To add texture and a soul-stirring quality to the soundtrack, we worked with a world-class choir from Hungary.
