Discovered in 2001 in the Chinese competition Small Town Story that set out to crown a singer that could come closest to sounding and resembling the late superstar, Tong Yao has since been performing around to world to bring Teng’s songs to generations of old and new fans. Now known as the Little Teresa Teng, the Sichuanese native has mastered the distinctive timbre of Teng, singing in Mandarin, Cantonese and Hokkien, delivering a truly unforgettable concert experience.
Tong is, of course, following in the footsteps of the greats. Teresa Teng is a beloved Taiwanese singer who became a truly global star in the 1970s and 1980s. Called one of Asia’s greatest and most influential singers, her soft and sincere renditions of melodies such as the I Only Care About You, Sweet As Honey, May We Be Together Forever and the eternal The Moon Represents My Heart captured hearts across the world. Her passing in 1995 from a severe asthma attack was mourned by millions, with Teng given a funeral with full state honours in her native Taiwan. But her legacy lives on, carried by reverent idols such as Tong Yao.
Come and bask in the moonlight and the legend of one of the greatest Chinese singers ever, breathed into life by an undisputed sound-alike.
