    Most Chinese girls (and Asian girls in general) love singing and therefore any guy looking to date any Asian girl should have a good knowledge of popular singers and songs. This will only add to her affection for you, since you show a genuine interest in an important aspect of her life and culture. Even if you do not speak any Chinese the music is often light and poppy and easy on the ears. On the other hand, most Chinese girls do not enjoy hard, heavy music like rock and rap music. This is often too much and they can not understand the words, which is counter to the often times poetic nature of Chinese music.

    Here are some more examples of popular Chinese female singers. Many of whom are also popular actresses. There is a mix of Mandarin and Cantonese songs, and most of these singers will cross into both main languages and also have songs in Japanese or even Korean.

    I have come to like Evonne Hsu. She is Taiwanese-American born in Longview, Texas.

    “Fish” is an awfully weird name, along with Jam, Crowd, Fruit, Rainbow and dozens of strange monikers. Thank god Koreans and Japanese have better sense by keeping their own ethnic names.

    I think that the most beautiful sound in the world is the sound of a woman’s voice, especially when singing or laughing. My Ivy sings beautifully, and has the prettiest laugh – it is almost musical.

    What about Zhang Liang Ying (Jane Zhang)? She has a beautiful voice.

    Popular Hit Single By Female Vocal Artist in Singapore 1983

    Hi, I hope someone can help me – I was studying in Singapore in 1983 and there was a very popular pop single at the time, a female vocalist – I remember her as having short black hair and a rather “tough” looking appearance. She wasn’t one of those “soft sweet types” that are classically pretty – but she seemed to have a tough exterior and a sensitive heart.

    But the song was amazing – i’m trying to find it on youtube. I bought her cassette tape in a local market at the time, but of course I’ve lost it since. I don’t know if she was from singapore or taiwan. the song was in chinese – I don’t know if it was mandarin or cantonese – but the chorus sounded like this:

    changee voo changee, tru quoa van nu, you ooooo

    one of the verses sounded like this (i only recall the last phrase):
    – – – – – – – — – – – – – tom tom wo a ainee

    a chinese friend of mine told me the song was something about the changing of seasons – or the seasons of love – but i’m not sure of that.

    I know i haven’t given you much – but i would very much appreciate any leads you might have.
    thanks!

      With a little help @makaha succeeded to find the song that he was looking for. It appeared to be the song of Su Rui (Julie Su).

      Below is the youtube link:

  • Summerthesmallone

    erm…my favorite would probably be.UM..erm.. S.H.E

  • justmyopinion

    I am Taiwanese.  Besides Teresa Tang, I should say the queen from the list is either 王菲 or 張惠妹.  The guy who wrote songs for Amei called 張雨生 died too early.  The song right now no longer fits Amei’s style, :( which is sad.  And that’s also the reason y people who buy her CD are getting less and less.
    ps. @@ sorry about my bad grammar.

    A lot of the Taiwanese singers included here aren’t very good vocally. Theyre “idol” singers?

  • Xuelistefanie

    I love Stefanie,so my name is Stefanie. Nice to meet you~

  • Rhys Ludlow

    Excellent selections from each of these artists. Most I played on my now discontinued MandarinRadio. I have to admit a huge fondness for Karen Mok and Tanya Chua. Were you to expand your list, I vote for them!!

  • Dude

    Lol… A lot of the singers are Taiwanese. They wouldn’t consider themselves Chinese, especially A Mei. She’s proud of her aboriginal heritage.

  • Nikos Brosi.

    ok, from the info given on this site, i can tell right away that this is written by a Taiwanese person, moreover, if Teresa Teng isn’t on this list then this article is garbage, one other person that could possibly be on this list is yangyuying(杨钰莹), who has the highest album selling record in mainland china.

    • Bill Zhang

      yangyuying donminated the 90s in China, no one can be nearly as popular as her now, time had changed. if it wasn’t the rumors that broke out in 1999 yangyuying could of been the most popular female singer in the chinese history
