Joey Yung Performs Teresa Teng Classics
Adjust font size:

Hong Kong pop singer Joey Yung led a tribute show to her long-time idol Teresa Teng at Beijing's Century Theater on Sunday.

Joey Yung worked with mainland singer Sha Baoliang to cover a range of classics from the late Taiwan singer, who dominated the Chinese pop scene in the 80s. A live symphony orchestra accompanied them.

At an earlier rehearsal, the Hong Kong star told reporters she was very happy to be invited to perform at the concert because Teresa Teng was an idol for her and her mother.

The first annual concert in tribute to Teresa Teng was staged last year. It starred the popular mainland band Yu Quan and "Super Girl" Zhang Liangying.

Teresa Teng, also known as Deng Lijun, passed away in 1995 due to an asthma attack. A slew of Chinese musicians have since perpetuated her music. Pop diva Faye Wong even released an entire album of cover songs in tribute to her work.
