“Ming Da and his team were amazing! Not only were they super talented, funny and loaded with stunning tricks but they were a blast to work with as well. Performing for over 1000 diplomats, politicians and Singapore’s finest isn’t an easy task, but watching Ming Da and his team do it you’d think otherwise. All night long, and for days to follow, we heard hilarious stories and accolades about Ming Da and his team. Thanks for making our 4th of July event magical!”
