Frances Yip, Sally Yeh among veteran divas to perform here


Veteran performers Frances Yip, Sally Yeh, Zheng Yi and Julie Su Rei, who reigned on the charts in the 1980s and 1990s, will be back in Singapore to belt out their hits over the next few months.

They will deliver classics, such as The Bund, Ten Past Midnight, Feelings and The Same Moonlight, in separate concerts.

Yip, 65, will take the stage at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Feb 23. She reveals that The Bund is the song that keeps on giving. She says: "I have not stopped singing that song for 32 years. It's a miracle really. I sing it with a lot of gratitude in my heart."

In 2011, she also received an unexpected windfall of a six-figure sum from the song for digital royalties thanks to the performing rights society in Hong Kong, which had been negotiating a royalties deal with mainland China.
