Anne Weerapass

Anne Weerapass brings her pop-singing perfected vocal into the foray of jazz. She possesses that jazzy quality we prize from the eras of Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, with a stimulating sensitivity that is firmly cultivated in the present era.  Utterly inspiring and momentarily playful, her Latin inspired jazz standards will put one’s mind at ease, making for a relaxing night that might even get your feet tapping.


Anne performs regularly at various jazz venues in Singapore and Southeast Asia. She presents songs that illustrate the ebbs and flows of love that also showcases her dynamic and versatile vocals, covering genres of jazz, blues, pop and evergreens.
