Hojong Song Tenor, South Korea «I got my inspiration and voice entirely from God». What inspired you to become a singer? I got my inspiration and voice entirely from God. What’s your dream role and why? I’d love to sing Duca from Rigoletto, because it’s extremely interesting and difficult in the sense of acting, vocal technique and colours, but at the same time it’s very musical and offers so much drama. Who is your favourite singer and why? Lucian Pavarotti. He achieved a level of vocal technique which allowed him to express everything he wanted through his voice, as it gave him absolute freedom and control. He had perfect legato, high notes and vocal stamina. What do you hope to achieve by participating in The Queen Sonja International Music Competition? I hope to meet a good management and good friends within casting.
