Chinese singer Leah Dou, 19, the elder daughter of singer Faye Wong, will be staging her first performance in Taiwan at Taipei’s Spring Wave Music and Art Festival this April.
The teen’s appearance cost event organisers NT$2 million (approximately S$84,000), which is on par with fees that A-list singers charge.
Festival organisers expressed interest in inviting Leah to sing at Spring Wave because they saw singing and songwriting talent in her. The theme of this year’s festival is ‘Rock through the ages across the Strait,” and Leah has a massive following on social media in mainland China.
The singer signed to her mother’s manager last August and made her debut in Japan, going on to perform in Shanghai and Beijing.
