A fond flashback to the best YouTube moments of Nathan Hartono

As we anticipate the conclusion of Sing! China tonight, we reminisce to the old days where Nathan Hartono sat in his room in front of a camera, filming himself doing song covers with his acoustic guitar
 

Did you know that long before his Sing! China days, Nathan Hartono was the “king” of song covers on YouTube? He even wrote a couple of original tracks, including one on – I kid you not – the unbearable pain of a wisdom tooth extraction.

I remember how much I made fun of my cousin, who adored him after he won the Teenage Icon singing competition back in 2005. But I guess the joke’s on me more than a decade later, as I swoon over his mellifluous voice in my little office cubicle.

Nathan has certainly come a long way, going from his ”teen jazz sensation” days to doing song covers on YouTube and of course, onto the international stage at Sing! China today.

As we cross our fingers and hope for another Singaporean victory a la Jo Schooling, let’s look back on our favourite Nathan Hartono song covers, as we reminisce the humble beginnings of the young heartthrob and his YouTube days.
