It’s a singing contest that you might want to check out.

Subaru Asia has partnered with global music legend Michael Bolton to launch the first season of the singing competition called the Asian Dream. Six talented musicians from across Asia will go head-to-head to compete for a spot on Michael’s Asian Dream tour and as a Subaru Ambassador.

Motor Image, the official distributor of Subaru cars in the region and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tan Chong International Limited, is committed to honing Asian talents. In fact, Motor Image previously sponsored Asia’s Next Top Model and commissioned Bolt of Talent.

Two things excite him the most: first is staying up to speed with the latest news in the industry that uses engines as their heart and soul. The second is imparting them in a well-detailed manner. His passion for anything with wheels started when he was young – from Tamiyas to family-friendly sedans, and anything in between.

Someday, Rex only wishes to drive on random highways with friends in a third-gen Mitsubishi Delica with aftermarket sunroofs, if he couldn’t get the Starwagon Super Exceed edition.
