Age is certainly not a barrier to achieving your dreams and living out your best life. This leading continence care brand intends to prove that people continue to thrive as they age and serve as an inspiration to all generations with their music.
TENA recently held an audition to form a band consisting of Malaysians over 50 with the purpose of spreading awareness on active ageing. The band search aims to show that no matter how old you are, you can still continue with your achievements and learn new things.
During the weekend, a total of 111 participants, including soloists and bands showcased their skills in front of celebrity judges with hopes of gaining a spot in TENA’s new band. Not only that, but they stand a chance to win a grand prize of RM60,000.
Throughout a sea of people, one particular band left a lasting impression. Musicians Gerard Singh (vocalist/bassist), Colin Thaddeus Jansen (guitarist), Raymond Chia (keyboardist) and Mark George Felix (guitarist) who are all over the age of 50, managed to rock the stage with their stage presence and talent.
These group of men were crowned as winners of the TENAcity band search and expressed their deepest gratitude to TENA for giving them a chance to go after their dreams.
“We appreciate TENA’s efforts in creating an avenue for older Malaysians to stay active, as there are often few options available to this demographic. The band hopes to inspire more Malaysians to not only prioritise active ageing physically but also mental implications,” said Gerard.
Apart from the grand prize, the band was also given a chance to embark on their own tour.
TENAcity will be touring around Malaysia starting with a performance in Shah Alam followed by Penang, Ipoh, Kuantan, Johor Bahru and finally back in Petaling Jaya.
