Just one month after releasing her debut CD, singer-songwriter Bai An performed at the prestigious big-scale venue Taipei Arena last month before a crowd of almost 10,000.

Many other artists before her have had to build up a body of work over several albums and years before they got a chance to step onto that stage.

She was one of five acts who performed at the concert on Feb 3. The other four who performed were big-voiced Jia Jia, kooky pop trio Cosmos People, dance-pop sextet Magic Power and singer-songwriter Yen-j.

The concert, B'in Together, is a free joint showcase for the five B'in Music acts. To enter, fans each had to buy at least two original CDs by selected B'in Music artists.
