Another singer has put Malaysia on the world map yet again.
Local singer Fish Leong, who has made her mark in the Mandopop scene and is hailed as the “Queen Of Love Songs”, has been recognised as be the 1st Malaysian Chinese to perform at the renowned Lincoln Centre For The Performing Arts.
The songstress made history on 4th December (Sunday), when she performed to a sold-out crowd at the venue. It was also the final show for her “Tu T’appelles L’amour 2016” tour, and aside from New York, she also put on a show for fans in Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, the US, and more.
When contacted by Star2, she expressed, “This is a dream come true! I feel so proud (of this achievement) and it is so meaningful for my music career.”
Malaysian musicians Mac Chew and Jenny Chin, both whom are music arrangers, were there to accompany Leong during the 3-hour show too.
The Lincoln Centre is an internationally renowned venue, known for hosting various local and international acts such as the New York Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera, and the New York City Ballad.
Leong kickstarted her career in Taiwan in 1997 after signing with Rock Records, but she only hit mainstream fame 2 years later with the release of her 2nd album “Courage (勇氣)”. She also have had a string of hits after that, most notably “Pain That Breathes (會呼吸的痛)”, “Break Up Happily (分手快樂)”, and “Unfortunately, It’s Not You (可惜不是你)”.
