She is an artist who expresses her art in a variety of ways, through acting, music, song writing, video making and beatboxing in Singapore. She is a simple young lady who loves doing what she loves and wants to share her passion in beatboxing with everyone out there.
It all started in 2007 when young Elaine, then 14, became interested to learn beatboxing in Singapore. She still recalled, her mother would say to her, “Stop that horrible noise!” or she would go, “Why can’t you do something more girly?” Her mother did not approve Elaine doing beatboxing until she went to see Elaine performing. After watching her daughter being very confident on stage and hearing the roaring applause from the audience, her mother finally gave her blessing. Back then, Elaine was still a psychology student, who eventually transitioned to a music career.

Nine years later, beside performing and teaching beatboxing for general public, Elaine still goes around Singapore to teach students from Primary to Tertiary education. During her career in music and beatboxing in Singapore, Elaine has participated in various competitions. Almost every year, she brought home an award: a silver award with the Dotz in Acapella Championship in 2010, a third place in beatbox competition in 2011, finalist for Clap Idol in 2013 with “Beatz”, and becoming Top 16 in Singapore Beatbox Championship in 2016. Elaine was also a member of the judging panel for BeatAlley-Back to Roots edition in 2015.
Today, Elaine is a proud and happy beatboxing teacher who got to perform alongside one the top emcees, MAS1A, during her tour in Australia. Elaine has also had a chance to showcase her skills in beatboxing in various countries such as the Philippines, Japan, Taiwan.
