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.

It has been announced that Taiwanese singer Jam Hsiao (蕭敬騰) will host the 29th Golden Melody Awards (GMA) Ceremony on 23 June 2018. It will be his first time in this role.
The news was announced at a press conference on 22 May.
“This is a historic first for me,” said Hsiao.
Mere months after the release of his original album, Jam Hsiao is back with his latest cover album "Reminiscence" which features ten cover songs that are said to be classic Chinese hits.
Each of the songs were picked specially by Jam himself, and arranged completely differently from the original to inject new life into each song.
Always requesting a 'one-take' for every recording, Hsiao certainly worked himself and his creative team hard to put this album together.
A simple yet effective concept, I can't wait to hear it!
His first single "一次幸福的機會The blessed moment" is out now! Listen to it below!
The results for the nominations for the 2013 Golden melody awards(that is , the best albums from 2012) are in! I am pleased to anounce that some of my favourites such as producer Skot Suyama , all the male nominees (jay Chou , Yoga Lin , Jam Hsiao , Khalil Fong and Xiao yu) as well as Jolin Tsai and lala hsu have been nominated for the big awards! However , I was a little disappointed that some of the albums that I felt were some of the best were not nominated.
So I will be holding my own awards , where some of MY picks will be showcased , for Best Male Mandarin Album , Best Male Mandarin Singer , best Female Mandarin Singer and Best group. More updates soon! First up , Best Male Mandarin Singer nominations !
