JONATHAN LEE SINGAPORE CONCERT 2014

Taiwanese singer-songwriter-producer Jonathan Lee, dubbed the godfather of Taiwan pop, has written hits for singers including Sarah Chen, Jeff Chang and Chao Chuan. Some of the most memorable were for his ex-wife Sandy Lam, including the duet When Love Becomes The Past. He was also part of Superband with Lo Ta-yu, Wakin Chau and Chang Chen-yue from 2008 to 2010. This means plenty of hits for him to take on in his distinctively gruff voice.
