Nostalgic Weekend - Tracy Huang

Tracy Huang is a Taiwanese and was a successful artiste in her home country recording her works in Mandarin. It was only after she moved to Singapore in the mid-70s that she became well known to Malaysians and Singaporean (and I believe Philippines too) when she started releasing albums after albums in English. This was the first Chinese cross-over that I know who never failed to surprise with each album. The tracks recorded were all cover versions but she was a hit no doubt. She has a silky voice that is so pleasant to listen to, especially with your eyes closed. She certainly reminds me of one international artiste who was also making waves during this period, Olivia Newton-John. Here are three of her popular tracks, "What a wonderful world", "Feelings" and "He ain't heavy, he's my brother".
