Malaysian singer Bell Yu Tian
Bell Yu Tian received a Best Vocal Performance nod for her song, Take Me Away.
Local Mandopop singer Bell Yu Tian carved up another achievement for Malaysia at the Hong Kong Asian-Pop Music Festival (HKAMF) event last week. The Malacca-born singer walked away with the Best Vocal Performance award for Take Me Away.
Yu was a contestant in the Asian Super Nova, which was held with HKAMF, showcased the best singers from seven Asian countries. Yu made it to the top three but lost the first place title to Hong Kong singer J.Arie.
Other contestants included Ming Bridges from Singapore, China’s Quan Zhendong and South Korea’s N-Sonic.
“When the award host announced that I won for Best Vocal Performance, I really couldn’t believe that! This is my first performance in Hong Kong after the release of my album,” said Yu in a press statement.
Yu released her 10-track debut album Sunny last year. Apart from composing most of the songs, Yu also plays the piano on several tracks.
Her singing style has also been compared to that of Fish Leong, whom fans have dubbed the “Queen of love songs”.
“I was feeling some pressure from the beginning. But I thought I should remain calm and just give out my best performance of a good song to the judges and audiences,” said Yu.
She added: “This is a valuable opportunity to exchange and share the beauty of music with other countries’ singers and it has been a very valuable experience to me!”
Currently in its fourth year, the KKAMF is an annual cross-regional music extravaganza. Organised by the International Federation of the Photographic Industry – Hong Kong Group, the event features the HKAMF Music Showcase and Asian Super Nova competition.
