迪雅自大學畢業期間便積極創作，除了扎實的唱功，更在樂器的學習上多加著墨！賽後以《絕對Superstar 2》冠軍之姿代言 SONY WALKMAN。09年，代表新加坡參加台灣《超級星光大道PK賽》。
A dollop of optimism coupled with a dash of spontaneity.
At the break of dawn, the fading of dusk, it is their voices you hear.
For in their music, in knowing them, you find someone else there. It is your self.
Carrie Yeo and Chen Diya make up the Freshman. The girls met in 2007 at the audition for “Project Superstar II”, a nation-wide singing talent search competition organised by Mediacorp Pte Ltd, and emerged the top two winners of the female category. Forging a friendship in their rivalry, they continued their dogged pursuit in their common dream – singing.
Carrie left her nine to five job as a marketing executive to sign on to Mediacorp as an artiste. She then acted in, and sang theme songs and sub-theme songs for Mediacorp dramas. In 2008, upon a chance listening of Carrie’s demo, local director Royston Tan picked her to sing the theme song of his movie “12 Lotus”.
Diya, as the female champion for “Project Superstar II”, was endorsed by SONY WALKMAN. She signed on with Mediacorp as an artiste, and was given opportunities to sing theme songs and sub-theme songs for Mediacorp dramas. In 2009, Diya was chosen as one of the Singapore representatives who went to Taiwan for the PK rounds of the popular “One Million Star” singing competition.
Gifted with boundless energy and a knack for experimentation, the girls have now combined forces to become the Freshman. the Freshman aim to inspire through their honest and sincere brand of music, and launched their debut album Life Experiment 101 in September 2010.
