The beautiful and talented Chang Hui Mei 张惠妹 (A-mei)...........................


Ok so its been a while since popular Taiwanese singer Chang Hui Mei 张惠妹 (A-mei) , have come up with anything that i really like, but i still have a lot of love for her, i think she is a really great singer.
A-mei made her debut in the world of music in 1996, achieving instant mega commercial success. She has frequently been called a diva of the Mandarin pop music scene, as well as the "Pride of Taiwan". She has won numerous music awards and become one of the biggest music sensations within pop music of the Mandarin-speaking world.
She hails from an aboriginal tribe in Taiwan, the Puyuma people on the rural southeast coast.

A-Mei sparked anger in China couple of years ago after singing at the Taiwanese president's inauguration.

She sang the national anthem of the Republic of China (Taiwan) and was subsequently blacklisted by Beijing.

US soft drinks giant Coca-Cola was forced to drop a multi-million dollar advertising campaign in China that featured her.

Here are some of my favorite songs from her...

but this song she calls can i hold you is absolutely my favorite of all her songs.....

Since exploding on to the Chinese pop scene in 1996, she has released three acclaimed albums, performed to sell-out audiences and netted dozens of awards in Asia.
