Nostaligic Weekend - Elaine Kang

Elaine Kang, another successful cross-over artiste. Here are two tracks, the first from that highly acclaimed 1967 movie, To Sir With Love, which starred Sidney Poitier, Judy Geeson and Lulu and the second from a live concert.

FOR the larger part of the 1980s, Elaine Kang was a household name in Malaysian music.

A bubbly and adorable Penang lass, she captivated millions with her down-to-earth style and singing in Chinese, Bahasa Malaysia and English with ease.

Kang, who has 30 albums — 26 in Chinese, three in English and one in Bahasa Malaysia — to her credit, celebrated 25 years in showbiz at the Grand Ballroom, JW Marriott Hotel, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur, on Dec 12 2006.

Her anniversary showcase, the Cool 25th: Elaine Kang Anniversary Charity Concert, is in aid of the Hin Hua High School in Klang. Proceeds from the 7pm show would be donated to the school’s building fund.
