OneFiveTwo, debut single solo by Peter Huang, MICappella’s Co-founder and Vocal Percussionist

The lyrics are so real! We think every parent can resonate. Honestly, it is rare to find songs that write about parent’s love for their child. When the song started playing, immediately we could tell it is the heartbeat that we will hear in the ultrasound. We are touched and liked it. This is what our team felt about Peter Huang’s debut solo single OneFiveTwo, which he released on 16 September 2020 after a recent major surgery and the song is specially dedicated to his 1-year-old son.

We interviewed Peter Huang on his latest song and how life’s been over the past few months during this Covid-19 pandemic.

1.         Brief introduce yourself, your music genre and latest releases.
My name is Peter Huang and I am the founder and vocal percussionist/co-music director of MICappella. I am also a producer, arranger and singer-songwriter.

This new track I have released is called OneFiveTwo. It is a song about my journey and experiences as a new father. The title is based on the speed of my son Jacob’s heart rate when we heard his heart beating for the first time on the Doppler when he was still a foetus.

2.         How has it been for you during the past few months of Covid-19 in terms of your music creation, your music work and daily routine?
As it has been for all musicians, it has been difficult. All shows have been halted since late March, and the opportunities to do digital shows are comparatively much less than live gigs in the past. 

But we soldier on and believe that things will improve eventually… 

3.         What are your upcoming plans for your music?
As of now, I am still considering the next single for myself. MICappella is still my main focus and we will be continuing to do covers, digital shows when possible and also writing new originals as we adjust our storytelling for a more digitally focused audience. 

4.         What advice do you have for people interested in music be it singing, learning to compose or play an instrument? 
It is all about putting in the time and heart into it. It has got to be something you love to do. If you love it, you will find yourself willing to put in the time and work. When you do so, the abilities and experience will accumulate.

Peter Huang

At a young age of 12, Peter Huang was diagnosed with Perthes Disease which affected his mobility greatly. He persevered and continued to pursue music at the Berklee College of Music. He had even toured in the United States, Canada and Taiwan as a solo artist. He had always toyed with the idea of a Mandopop acapella group since 2009 and MICapella was formed, gaining deep respect in the music industry for their musical talents and creativity.

To him, family is the most important which he cherished. Becoming a father gave him the inspiration to compose a song for his first son, Jacob. Touching lyrics to a modern, hip-hop tune was quite an interesting combination, this song indeed signifies his deep love for his son.

Lyrics:

回憶到那天 那時刻人生瞬間的改變
我的世界從此有了一種魔力不停的盤旋
是你的出現 你的存在生命有了新的體驗
當你的老爸成為我生命中最重要的職業
最是那麼簡單你是我的囡仔 我的子
我和你媽的寶貝再難的都無所謂
在這個世界只有你的未來比我的更加的寶貴
在我的生命只有你讓我和你媽犧牲一切
Hold my hand Don’t be scared i’ll be here right by your side
You’re my heart You’re my friend Bound to you For all my life
對你的期盼其實很簡單
只希望你不壞蛋 長大後不要變混蛋
不然老爸會心碎完蛋
要愛你的媽 要愛這個老爸
要記得愛努力愛自己關懷人家
要做個好人 要學會容忍
不得以貌取人 不得忘恩
要永遠記得只有愛才是永恆
愛 可以遮蓋眾多的失誤與失敗
有愛才會有體諒 有原諒
有持久的手足情懷
Hold my hand Don’t be scared i’ll be here right by your side
You’re my heart You’re my friend Bound to you For all my life
You’re pulling strings of my heart
You’re pulling strings of my heart
You’ve got me wrapped around
Got me wrapped around and around
You’re pulling strings of my heart
You’re pulling strings of my heart
You’ve got me wrapped around and around
Hold my hand Don’t be scared i’ll be here right by your side
You’re my heart You’re my friend Bound to you For all my life
