Whatever happen to CoCo Lee 李玟 ?

Chinese American singer CoCo Lee 李玟 was one of the few if any Asian singers to have a hit record in the U.S, Born in Hong Kong with ancestry from Harbin, China, Coco is the youngest of three children.
She has released a total of seventeen albums by 2006, with two recorded in English. Her single, “Do You Want My Love” entered the music charts in America and the entire album, “Just No Other Way” gave Coco a break in the English market.
Coco is the first Chinese to perform in the Oscars, singing the Academy Award nominee for Best Original Song, A Love Before Time from the movie Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon in the 73rd Academy Awards.

Coco also provided the voice of Mulan in the Mandarin version of Disney’s animated feature of the same name. In 2008, Coco was chosen to sing one of the Olympic songs, Forever Friends opposite Sun Nan.
here is one of my favorite english songs from her called DO YOU WANT MY LOVE..

She is such a talented person, i hope she continue to make records not only in Chinese but also in English, so her beautiful voice can really reach a millions of non Chinese speaking people.
