Performing Arts) where she
has been extremely active in
the Arts scene. Ming is a

Born to a British father and
Singaporean mother, Ming Bridges
has proven to be more than just a
pretty face, for not only can she sing,
act, model and dance, her talent for
song-writing was discovered during a
meeting with Singapore’s veteran
musicians Eric Ng and Xiaohan. “I
Want You Back” was the very song
that Ming played for them during their
first meeting.
Ming has since then been signed up
by Funkie Monkies in Singapore and
has released her debut bilingual
album “誰知道Who Knows” in both
English & Mandarin consisting of 9
English songs and 3 Chinese songs in
February 2012.. Her first single ‘I want
you back’ is being released in
November, followed by a Mandarin
track “有些男孩不不能愛” (Some Guys) in
January. She wrote 11 out of the 12
tracks.
“有些男孩不不能愛” (Some Guys)
climbed its way into the Y.E.S. 93.3FM
charts at No. 8, and “ 馬賽克世界”
(Mosaic World) had made its way into
the top 10! ‘Under the Stars’ also
found its way into the 91.3FM charts.
“Who knows” yielded impressive
results for Ming in the year of 2012.
With 2 awards for that year, Elle:
Music Act of 2012 and m:idea Youth
Choice Awards 2013.
She was also chosen to record and
perform “Believe”, theme song for

the prestigious local G-music chart,
a chart that is based upon CD sales.
