Yet another Singaporean has made it to Sing! China, China’s version of The Voice!
After charismatic crooner Nathan Hartono came in second place in the singing competition last year, Joanna Dong may be the next Singaporean to find success in the Chinese market.
The talented vocalist charmed the judges with her sweet, joyful vocals and vocal trumpet, and her dynamic performance earned her a three chair turn. After high praise from the judges, she picked Jay Chou to be her coach.
Who Is Joanna Dong?
Joanna Dong is no stranger to Singapore’s music scene.
She has sung for local festivals including the Mosaic Music Festival, Da:ns Festival, Baybeats, and Flipside. The singer, who sings in both English and Mandarin, is a lover of jazz music and is passionate about sharing that love with Mandarin-speaking audiences.
In 2008, she released a Jazz EP called ‘Lullaby Nomad‘, which contained original lyrics written in English and Mandarin. She also performed at a sold-out concert at the Esplanade Recital Studio, and has worked with the likes of DJ Koflow, Robosonic, and SonicBrat!
Clearly deeply passionate about her craft, we wish Joanna all the best in this singing competition!
