Singer Simone Khoo, president of and resident female vocalist in a cappella oufit Vocaluptuous, may be battling breast cancer but she's not letting it get her down.

In fact, you'll hear 49-year-old Khoo giving her all tomorrow, when she and fellow Vocaluptuous members - Timothy Huang, Sam Kan, John Lee, Hairul Nizam and Gerald Tan - perform at the seventh Aka a cappella festival at the National University of Singapore.
