HCM CITY — Pop star Hồ Ngọc Hà is set for her first world tour next month.
Love Songs will feature 14 shows in the US, Australia, Germany, France, and the Netherlands.
She will perform 20 songs for 90 minutes at each show along with talented musicians.
At her first show in Houston, the US, Hà, who began her career by singing pop and dance music but has turned recently to R&B, will perform jazz, blues and R&B music.
The evening’s highlights will include romantic songs from her latest albums, Destiny and What Is Love?, which came out late last year and quickly became top hits.
"My crew and I have worked hard the whole year to provide my fans something new," the 33-year-old says.
“It will be great when I sing for overseas Vietnamese.”
In the US, she will then perform in San Diego, San Jose, Denver, Dallas and Atlanta.
She has invited several young singers like Noo Phước Thịnh, Ngô Kiến Huy, Giang Hồng Ngọc, and Bùi Anh Tuấn to perform along with her.
Hà began her singing career in 2004 after earlier working as a model, overcoming many challenges to become arguably the most famous young singer in the country.
Her very first album, 24 Giờ 7 Ngày (24 Hours 7 Days), helped her establish herself.
In 2009 her top hit Xin Hãy Thứ Tha (My Apologies), a song featuring pop and rap music, became a phenomenon though critics gave the music mixed reviews.
She was chosen for the Asia Song Festival in Seoul the same year.
Her first live performance, called Hồ Ngọc Hà Live Concert 2011, used high-tech equipment to dazzle an audience of more than 3,000 at the Lan Anh Entertainment Club in HCM City.
Hà has won several prestigious prizes like the Year’s Best Singer, Best Album and Best Concert from HCM City Television, Voice of HCM City and Thể Thao & Văn Hóa ( Sport& Culture) newspaper.
She has performed in several TV shows and films.
For her first world tour, Love Songs, Hà has worked hard on her voice and performance skills. Her costumes will be designed by young talent Lý Quý Khánh.
After the US, Hà will visit Australia in August and Europe later. — VNS
