AJ Rafael and Cathy Nguyen come to Melbourne

FROM your computer screens to an ice cream parlour here in Melbourne, YouTube’s AJ Rafael and Cathy Nguyen are coming to our shores – and they want to meet you.

Californian YouTube sensations Cathy Nguyen and AJ Rafael are heading to Melbourne for an exclusive meet and greet session with their fans Down Under – in an ice cream parlour. Having a popsicle in winter has never sounded this good.

You may recognise these two from some of Wong Fu Productions’ videos like “When We Say (Juicebox)”, but Cathy and AJ are stars in their own right.

Singer-songwriter AJ (or Arthur Joseph) Rafael has wowed YouTubers with his song covers and original music with close to 400,000 subscribers and 90 million video views. Shortlisted for a Grammy nomination, AJ has also consistently been in the Top 20 on Billboard’s “Uncharted” Chart since 2011.

Cathy Nguyen, on the other hand, has dabbled in everything from acting to singing to, well, radiology –  the major she recently graduated with from university. With more than 280,000 YouTube subscribers and 43 million video views and counting, it’s understandable that Cathy is itching to get back into the spotlight with her music, and she says, maybe even more acting.


Soulmanna Live is giving fans a chance to meet (and maybe share an ice cream cone?) with AJ Rafael and Cathy Nguyen this Friday, July 27 at Passionflower, from 5 to 7pm, on 168 Bourke St, Melbourne.

Tickets are going for $29, inclusive of a free ice cream cone, and are available on

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
