That is sad.

Some of your other beloved Asian idols cant even be compared to her.

Edit:
Haven't you seen Alladin or Mulan? She is the singing voice of Princess Jasmine, and the original version of Fa Mulan.

---------------------


Anyways, she recently had a concert in Korea. She sang gracefully and got standing ovations after every song. She was shocked and dumbfounded for she did not know that she was that famous in Korea. Note: 99% of the audience were Koreans.

Yeah, I have watched Mulan and Aladdin. I Loved Mulan, but was not really a big fan of Aladdin. I guess if you're claiming her to be that good of a singer though, I'll give her a try and look up some of her music to listen to then.

Im not claiming that she is good. Her awards says that she is good. Ever heard of the Olivier, Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics, and Theatre World Awards?
