HCM CITY — Pop star Phuong Thanh will organise a solo concert in HCM City this week to introduce her latest rock music album.
She will perform four songs at the concert: Don Dau (Hurt), Meo Hoang (Wild Cat), Quay Ve Day (Come Back) and Hinh Dung (Imagine) by composer Nguyen Dan.
Her new album is titled Quay ve day – Meo Hoang (Come back – Wild Cat).
Famous Central Highlands-based singer Siu Black will be the only guest artist at the concert that will be held at 126 Theatre in District 3 on November 25.
Thanh released her latest album on November 11, marking her comeback to singing after two years of pursuing a career in acting. The album package consists of a CD, a DVD with four music videos and a photo album of the singer.
"It took me five years to perfect the album, especially for recording," Thanh said.
"Images in the album reflect truly my personality and style when I began my music career 20 years ago," she added.
The singer, who has a unique and unusual voice, often sings about love and loneliness.
Thanh found her desire to sing in 1991 when she joined a club for young singers at the Workers Cultural Palace Theatre.
She became well known in the early 90s. Thanh won several times the Lan Song Xanh (Blue Wave) prize for Favourite Singer given by Radio the Voice of HCM City.
Apart from being a famous singer, Thanh has acted in several movies.
She received the Viet Nam Cinematography Association's Golden Kite Award for Supporting Actress for her role in Nu Hon Than Chet (Death God's Kiss) directed by Nguyen Quang Dung in 2007. — VNS
