Teresa Teng

Image: Teresa Teng
  Teresa Teng is a Taiwanese idol whose 30 year career made her the first truly International artist across all of Asia. Although a highly skilled player of classical Chinese instruments, it was her voice that brought her wide acclaim.

Her road to stardom lead her first to Hong Kong, where she became an adopted daughter. She also spent time in Japan, recording several albums in Japanese. However, with the opening of Mainland China, her star was soon the brightest in Beijing

Unfortunately her career was cut short and she died in 1995. However, her songs and shows are still widely broadcast today. She was the first to break through international barriers, and this is perhaps her legacy to all Asian musicians
