Tanya Chua, Cyndi Wang and Karen Mok Bag 3 Awards Each At Singapore's Global Chinese Golden Chart (GCGC) Awards
The 2019 Global Chinese Golden Chart Awards kicked off to a great start Tuesday night at the Capitol Theatre, welcoming cream of the crop performers from all across the Greater China region to participate in the festivities.
Hosted by local radio station UFM 100.3, the night started off with a performance by local polished indie unit Neko Highway performing popular hit "阿五A-Wu". The all-girl band later was presented with the Bronze award for Best Newcomer.
With performances by indie darling Ann Bai, R&B - pop artist Xiao Bing Chih, Cyndi Wang, Tanya Chua and more, the audiences and livestream viewers were wowed with a selection of new songs such as Singaporean singer-songwriter Boon Hui Lu's tear-jerker '親愛的" and Ann Bai's "讓我逃離平庸的生活 Escaping the Mediocre Life", as well as oldies-but-goodies such as Cyndi Wang's unforgettable '當你' and Chua's 'Beautiful Love'.
Truly a night to remember for local fervent fans of Mandopop presenting just a taster of what the contemporary scene has to offer while paying homage to greats past and present.

I was really doubtful of Cyndi Wang's change when they announced her transformation into a goddess of love songs. But from this song I see that at least , they have made an effort to totally get rid of her previous sweetie-pie image , which is a start. Love the use of vocals in the background. I really hope this time that she is successful in her transformation !
Hi all , here's a list of all the new albums that will be coming out soon :
They are split into sections so I can describe them better :)
A few artists who are known worldwide or can be considered as fairly well known in the music business are releasing albums soon! I may have already mentions some of these:
-Yen-j will be releasing his new album on the 29th of September ! For more info , click on the Yen-J archive on the side of the screen .
-Jolin Tsai will release her new album <muse> which has really excited her fans , to the point thatwithin two days of the release of her new music video , she has garnered over 1 million views on YouTube. Wow. Same applies to her , you can find more info under the Jolin Tsai archive .
-Jing Chang will be releasing her new album <小女孩> little girl on the 22nd of September!
-some juicy news here: Gary chaw is set to release his new album sometime in autumn( whenever that is in Taiwan) , so will keep you posted!
-Another mandopop princess , Cyndi Wang is slated to release her new album in October with Universal music Taiwan. Not much is known about it but I'm sure we are all excited :)
-Rachel liang will be releasing her new album sometime at the end of the year , as a fan I'm really excited to see what she comes up with this time !
-eVonne Hsu is also set to release her new album sometime in September .
Now , on to the newbies!
-Michelle Chen: not a newbie per say , for those of you who have seen the highly popularized movie <You're the apple of my eye> , or any drama with rainie yang in it such as Why Why Love or that other one with her and Wilber pan in it , that I can't really remember at the moment , she's in it usually as some kind of side character , but is a main character in the movie. I for a fact know that she has been working on this album for a while , but it is set to be released early next year , so watch out for her!
-VChuan is a fairly new singer , I think he released his debut album last year and is set to release another one on the 5th of September . For those who are unfamiliar with him , you may be surprised by this: he actually wrote quite a few hits , notably 我们都傻by rainie yang and also 洋葱by Della ding , if I'm not wrong. His new album is called 小妞／英雄 .
-you may not have heard of this artist before , but he is a very popular artist on the Taiwanese music sharing social network with a talent for the guitar.he will be releasing his new EP 有你总是好天气(with you the weather is always good) on the first of September.
That's all I have for now ,but keep watching out for more updates!
