Faye to sing at Teresa Teng concert

13 Apr – Chinese songstress, Faye Wong will be participating in the Teresa Teng concert, "Chasing Dream: Forever Teresa Teng", to be held by The Teresa Teng Foundation for the late singer's 60th birthday.

According to Groove Asia website, Teresa's brother and chairman of the foundation, Teng Chang-fu, expressed, "Teresa had three regrets in her lifetime. One was not completing her education; the second was to never have the chance to wear a wedding dress; while the third was not having the chance to perform in Mainland China."

Mr. Teng continued saying that while Teresa was always very studious and got to wear a white gown at one of her concerts in Japan, the only thing she didn't get to do was accomplish her dreams to hold a concert in China – a dream that will now be realised by the foundation.

Meanwhile, Chinese actor and Faye's husband Li Yapeng, who attended the press conference on behalf of the Smile Angel Foundation and the singer herself, revealed, "When Faye was 14, the first cassette album she bought was a cover of Teresa's songs. Thus, as a fan of Teresa, she will be singing four to five of her songs at the concert."

Meanwhile, singer Jane Zhang has also confirmed her participation in the concert. She says that while it will not be her first time singing Teresa's songs, this is the first time she is using her voice to pay tribute to Teresa and the special cause."

It is reported that the concert will be held in May in Beijing. Part of the proceeds will be donated to the Smile Angel Foundation.

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    Watch a man drive his three-wheeled Mustang along a Texas highway

    Some things in life are hard to explain, like why a dentist insists on asking you questions when you clearly can't respond. Or why we call pants "a pair" even though it's just one. Or how about this puzzler: Why a person would drive their Mustang along a Texas highway despite it missing a wheel? Life is full of little mysteries, I guess.
