Singer Joanna Dong to tour seven Asian cities

Home-grown singer Joanna Dong is taking her jazzy brand of pop on the road in a So Here I Am Asian tour.

It takes place in Taipei on Oct 6 and Hangzhou on Oct 14, with stops along the way in Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Zhengzhou.

She said in a press release: "I've always loved jazz music deeply and have always hoped to attract more Chinese people to notice it and fall in love with it. This is also a great opportunity to get close to my new music fans. It sounds a little scary to tour seven cities in 10 days, but I believe it will all be worth it."

The 36-year-old's popularity has been on the rise ever since she appeared on the televised reality competition Sing! China last year.

Her So Here I Am concert was held on June 30 and July 1 at Esplanade Concert Hall and she has released an EP of the same name.

She also recently appeared on stage with her Sing! China mentor, Mandopop king Jay Chou, at Formula One 2018 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix.
