This New Year’s Eve, three veteran singers will be performing at Resorts World Genting to bid farewell to 2015 and welcome the new year.
The 2016 New Year Countdown Celebration with 3 Asian Divas features no less than Frances Yip, Elisa Chan and Maria Cordero, all seasoned artistes with still huge followings. The concert is scheduled to be held at Arena of Stars at 10pm on 31st December, 2015.
The evergreen and versatile Frances Yip is still well loved after all these years. In her 45-year career, Yip has released more than 80 albums comprising songs in various languages, from English to Spanish to Cantonese and Japanese.
The Hong Kong singer was at the height of her popularity in the 80s and 90s; she was best known for performing theme songs for television shows produced by TVB. The Bund, from the TVB drama of the same title, was perhaps her biggest international hit although her fans would remember her 70s album, Discovery, that was based on her experiences while travelling.
Elisa Chan is likewise one of Asia's most enduring stars, having first made her mark in Hong Kong in the 80s. Chan was perhaps best known for her duets with the late Leslie Cheung. Her illustrious career began in the 70s; after quitting school at the age of 16, she joined New Topnotes, a Cantonese-language band. In 1975, she became the lead singer of her band, performing English and Cantonese pop songs. Her students in later years included Nicholas Tse, Joey Yung, and Twins.
Like Yip, although her native tongue is Cantonese, Chan also sings in other languages including Mandarin, Japanese, English, Italian and Tagalog.
Cordero, better known as Fat Mama, is a true force to be reckoned with in the Hong Kong entertainment industry. She is singer, actress, TV host and deejay all rolled into one.
The Portuguese-Chinese's singing career took off in 1985 after word spread about her singing ability at a new discotheque. Director and song writer Teddy Robbin wrote songs for her (Sai Hei being the most notable) and her hits include Mama I Love You, You Can’t Stop Me Loving You and Oh People.
