Singer Ho Ngoc Ha to strut stuff at Asia song fest

Vietnamese model cum singer Ho Ngoc Ha will be the sole Vietnamese representative attending the Asia Song Festival in Seoul, South Korea.

During the two-day event, which will take place o­n September 18 and 19 at the Seoul Stadium, Ha will share the stage with singers from nine Asian countries and territories, including South Korea, Japan, China, Thailand and Hong Kong.

The Vietnamese singer will present two English songs, My Apology and Girl’s Night by Duong Khac Linh, both of which are o­n her latest album, Ho Ngoc Ha – The First Single.

Aiming to make a good first impression with foreign audiences, Ha has invited two foreign choreographers to stage her performance.

"My performance at the festival will be my debut at an international event, which is why I want to make a good first impression with foreign audiences," Ha says.

According to the 25-year-old singer, she spends six to eight hours everyday practising her moves with the choreographers.

Ha also says that she feels confident sharing the stage with some "big names" in Asian showbiz, such as Ekin Cheng from Hong Kong and Girl’s Generation from South Korea.

"I feel very confident because everyday I gain more and more performing experience. My vocal technique has also improved. I wouldn’t have dared come to this festival two years ago," she says.

Musicians Duc Tri and Duong Khac Linh will accompany Ha during her performance in Seoul.

Ha will also perform at the concert tour Va Em Se Yeu (And I Will Love) after coming back from Seoul. Organised by the haircare branch Sunsilk, the concert tour will start in HCM City o­n September 29 and then take place in five other big cities nationwide. — VNS
