在中国发展音乐事业的新加坡歌手

There are many things that China and Singapore have in common, and one of them is music.

中国与新加坡两国有诸多交集,音乐便是其中之一。

Many Singaporean singers have pursued their musical career both at home and here in the Chinese mainland, as well as in Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Here are just a few.

Kit1 Chan

Singaporean singer Kit Chan has worked in many areas since her debut2 in 1993, including music, theater, television, composing, creative direction, community work and even entrepreneurship. Chan is without a doubt the most successful singer in Singapore, as she enjoys the title of Singapore's "national treasure" in music.

Chan has enjoyed success in Taiwan and Hong Kong more than she did in the Chinese mainland, until she participated in the hit television show I am a singer earlier this year. Her years of theater training and delicate and smooth vocals3 became an immediate4 sensation among viewers.

Stefanie Sun

Since her debut in 2000, Stefanie Sun has become one of the most widely recognized voices from Singapore in the Chinese mainland. With 11 albums under her belt, Sun is arguably the most successful singer from Singapore, second only to Kit Chan, whose talent is somewhat under-recognized. Sun was named Best Newcomer for her song Cloudy Day at the 12th Golden Melody Award, Taiwan's equivalent to the Grammys. Sun has sold more than 10 million albums in Asia.

Sun married Dutch-Indonesian entrepreneur Nadim Van Der Ros on May 8, 2011, and gave birth to their first child on Oct 30, 2012.

JJ Lin

JJ Lin has enjoyed commercial success ever since he stepped into the world of music. Lin won Best New Artist for his debut album Music Voyager at the 15th Golden Melody Awards. A decade later, he took home the title as Best Male Performer, a high honor from the Golden Melody Awards.

34-year-old JJ Lin is recognized for his talents in not just singing, but in composition. Besides producing numbers by himself, Lin has written songs for various recording5 artists, including Remember for Taiwan-based singer A-Mei, Let Go for fellow Singaporean singer A-Do, and What's Wrong with You? for Harlem Yu.

Jocie Kwok

Jocie Kwok was the first artist to be granted copyright to sing Mouse Loves Rice, a song that took China by the storm in 2004. Her first album, No More Panic, attained6 platinum7 status with its sales worldwide.

Kwok, whose Chinese name is pronounced Guo Meimei, suffered greatly after an Internet celebrity8 by the same name stirred a large scandal affiliated9 with the Red Cross. Though the two are in no way related to one another, the impact from the Red Cross scandal was so big that it cut down 70 percent of Kwok's commercial activities.

Tanya Chua

Singaporean singer Tanya Chua did not rise to prominence10 until she signed with Warner Music Taiwan in 2003. Her album Amphibian11 won her a Best Female Artist at the Golden Melody Awards. Chua has also made a name for herself in production, as she has written a number of hit songs for Gigi Leung, Faye Wong and Stefanie Sun.

A-Do

Former construction foreman A-Do, whose real name is Do Chengyi, was discovered by music producer Billy Koh during his company's talent search. A-Do shot to fame with his husky voice and original number He must really love you in 2003.
