A-Mei Biography - From a Tribal Township to Taiwanese Superstar
Born in the Beinan Township, Taitung Country in 1972, a young Chang Hui-mei was exposed to tribal music throughout her childhood. Fascinated by the art, she turned to the radio to listen to all the latest advancements in English music, and grew interested in forging a professional music career. By 1992, she had made it to the final stages of the Five Lights Singing Contest and after receiving encouragement from her father, she won the show on her second attempt in 1994. Forming a rock band with her cousin, the pair began to perform locally, soon earning radio play across Taiwan. After being signed by Forward Music she released her debut album Sisters in 1996, selling over 1 million copies. Follow-up Bad Boy came out a year later, becoming the second best-selling album in Taiwanese history with single 'Can't Cry' now regarded as a Chinese language pop music classic. She quickly earned a reputation as a true diva, due to her energetic live performances and outstanding vocal ability.
After a break from the spotlight, the singer signed with Warner Music in 2001, releasing the Truth LP, which led to her becoming one of the 20 Asian Heroes featured in Time magazine the next year. Fever and Brave followed in the next two years, before she became embroiled in political issues between Taiwanese independence supporters and the Chinese music industry. Undeterred by any criticism, she went on to release LPs Maybe Tomorrow in 2004 and I Want Happiness in 2006, picking up her work as a Taiwanese ambassador once again. Her AMIT album picked up numerous prizes at the 21st Golden Melody Awards, while sequel AMIT 2 has seen similar success since its release in April 2015. With a place as a judge on The Voice of China, she remains a leader in the Taiwanese pop movement today. Grab your chance to see her live with A-Mei tickets from StubHub.
