SALLY YEH RETURNS
SALLY YEH at 51 Returns: Sing Lady Gaga, Show the Good Figure, Dance the Hot Latin, Sing 40 Songs Without Breathing Heavily
(Singapore News) Hong Kong Queen of Pop SALLY YEH held her “Intimately Yours Sally Yeh Concert Tour 2013 – Singapore” at the Max Pavilion the night before yesterday. Sally sang nearly 40 songs Live, including SEEW SAH, which truly satisfied the audience's hunger for good music!
Came with Sally to Singapore was her unquestionable sincerity, which was fully reflected in her show. Besides singing and dancing in the 7 groups of medley in the opening, Sally especially showcased her hot Latin for which she'd practiced for long. When she was singing “Cha Cha Cha” and “La Isla Bonita”, she especially invited two dancing teachers from Russia to dance together with her. Even with the singing and dancing, she didn't breathe heavily at all. As for costume, not only did she wear a gown with Deep V design, she didn't care at all when her bottom revealed while she was circling around dancing.
After dancing, while lifting her clothes, she laughingly said “Everything becoming loose during dancing, but there's nothing interesting to see at the bottom anyways”, showing her casual, easygoing side.
With a group of dancers, she also ran down the arena to have close interaction with the audience, which caused chaos in the audience for a while. Uncles and Aunties became little fans, so many danced together with her.
Be Trendy and Dance Gangnam Style
Sally also sang several songs of others, including A-Mei Chang's “Listening to the Sea” and Lady Gaga's “The Edge of Glory”. During Encore, she even danced “Gangnam Style”, which showed she totally followed the cutting-edge trends.
Sally has many good friends. On the big screens the audience saw many scenes in which her good friends including the most beautiful Miss Hong Kong Loletta Chu were talking about Sally; there were also video clips of Sally playing badminton and hiking, which enabled the fans to get a glimpse of what the life of a superstar looked like.
Sally said, if not for the enthusiasm and support of the fans, it's good enough to be a wife at home. “Our performance replies on the audience's response. If it’s not for the enthusiasm you'd shown me, I wouldn't be here today.” She also jokingly said if one day no one wants to listen to her sing anymore, she would “just play some badminton, play some golf, and dance some Latin…that would be good enough.”
Jokes that Her Husband has an Old Soul
This time, her husband George Lam and stepson Alex Lam didn't come to Singapore with Sally, but the music director of her show, Chiu Tsang Hei, who would have concerts together with Lam soon, came with Sally. “My husband told me to make sure not to make Chiu too tired.”
Even though her husband didn't come, Sally sometimes would still joke about her husband on stage ,”he has an old soul… he doesn't like to talk… I have a young soul.”
When photos from Sally's childhood were displayed on big screen, there were some of Lam's funny photos too, which showed his childlike, lovely side. Sally also sang Lam's famous song “Fun Fun Gsoong Gsoong Sui Yiow Ney”
Lian He Zao Bao
Will She Have a Courageous and Graceful Life Eventually?
Sally Jokingly Said She Will Let the Reporter Know when She's Approaching the End of Her Life...
Having sung countless classic golden songs, Sally said she hopes her own life can be like her most popular song, “Seew Sah Tsoe EE Hwey”.
Haven't had concert in Singapore for years, Hong Kong Queen of Pop SALLY YEH would finally have her show tonight at the Lion City. She excitedly told the reporter over a long-distance interview 2 days ago that, “Haven't been here for so long! I do miss my fans in Singapore, so I especially wanted to make this show to be warm, cozy, intimate, it would feel like a big gathering for old friends.”
It's been more than 20 years since Sally first started her career in the music industry, and she had sung countless classic songs. It's not an easy task for her to pick the songs that had affected her the deepest. After we changed the question for her to name the song that had left the deepest impression in her, Sally said, “Should be ‘Seew Sah” I guess! This is the song that made me widely known, and the lyrics expresses the kind of life goal that I wish to achieve myself.” Then, has she really have walked through her life gracefully, as the song sings? Sally humorously said, “I don't know yet. I will let you know when I'm approaching the end of my life, haha!”
Choosing Between Singing and Acting
Actually, her bold and courageous character has been reflected by the choices she made. Started her career in acting, she'd never thought about becoming a singer in the beginning, even until today. “Before I started my career, I would only sing at home sometimes, and no one felt I sang especially well or anything. So I started with acting. Then once some coworkers happened to hear me sing while we were in the car; they thought I sang pretty well and urged me to do trial recordings and see. This is how I became a singer all by “chance”.
After releasing her albums, she decided to choose one between singing and dancing. “At the time I usually have 2 or 3 movies going on at the same time, plus singing. When I was extremely busy, shifting between the two, I felt I no longer knew what I was doing, so I said to myself I should choose one and focus on this one instead.” So, her decisiveness enabled us to have our Queen of Pop today.
Now I Understand What I am Singing
Sally revealed that, because she doesn't read Chinese, she relied on Pinyin in the past when she was doing recordings for her albums, and usually she didn't really understand what she was singing exactly. It's only with the passage of time did she start to understand what she'd been singing exactly. “For so many things, you have to experience them yourself to fully grasp the meaning of them, to truly understand. In the past I usually had no idea what I was singing, but after going through much in life, now I appreciate the meaning of each song even more, and I put in more emotions and feelings in my singing too. “
As a Sports enthusiast, besides badminton and golf, recently Sally also especially practiced Latin Dance for her concert. We'd heard that she would bring the entire show that she had in the Hong Kong Coliseum for 4 nights last September to the stage in Singapore. What's a pity is, her husband George Lam and stepson Alex Lam didn't have time to come together, so local fans wouldn't be able to see the scene of the 3 singing together. Sally sweetly said “For this concert, all the audiences are my VIP guests.”
