Forever Teresa Teng Memorial Singing Contest
In June of 1995, CTS TV station of Taiwan, commemorating Teresa Teng, initiated a special singing contest, uniting / inviting TV stations from Hong Kong, Singapore and United States in the “Forever Teresa Teng Singing Contest”. I participated in the United States’ competition, competing against singers from all over the United States and Canada and eventually won the title. After the US final, two of the top finalists were sent to Taiwan for the finale competing for the world title, for which I was fortunate to win the title as well.

Teresa Teng One Year Memorial Concert
The National Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, Taipei, Taiwan, 5/10/1996
Televised CTS Main Channel, Taiwan Broadcasting System
I performed in front of Teresa Teng's mother. Originally, I wanted to sing Mother's Heart, even though a less known song by Teresa; however talks about struggles as foreigner, how the missing thoughts of mothers gives them warmth and strength and how they cant wait to be united with their mom. This sound has great meaning for myself and Teresa as we are both foreigners and can relate. Also, the program was going to air on Mother's day, I thought it would be really meaningful to perform this song in her presence.

Golden Melody Program
In 1998, I debuted my first album, titled: I understand, which reflect on understanding and missing of loss of the loved one. Even Though, there wasn’t fancy outfit or elaborate packaging, I carried the album with moving emotion sincerely. I was also invited to sing “Melancholy”,a song soundtrack created for a historical drama - Yongzheng Emperor. Even though it gained favorable recognition and was popular among the viewers, it was not included in my second album - Selfish.
