Teresa Khoo, music star from the 50s
Teresa Khoo was one of Singapore’s most talented daughters from the 50s who acquired her LRSM (London Royal School of Music) in piano when she was only 15 years old. According to reliable sources, she was a prefect at school and was usually on stage to lend support by playing the piano for numerous occasions. She started the first ever all girls band called the Blue Belles in 1960, way before any guitar group could ever claim that status. The group came in third in a “battle of the bands” contest that year and were a hit when they appeared in nightclubs all over Singapore and Malaya playing jazz standards.
