Feng Fei Fei’s Death Announcement Delayed Until After Chinese New Year [Video]
Feng Fei Fei, a Taiwanese singer and talkshow host, passed away at the age of 60 on January 3rd, 2012. Her death was only recently revealed by her lawyers, however, as the singer did not want her death to interfere with the Chinese New Year celebration.
The China Post reports that Feng Fei Fei was adamant that her death would not distract from the Chinese New Year holiday. Feng said that “breaking such news during the New Year holidays will bring bad luck to others.”
President Ma said that he was saddened by the news. Feng Fei Fei sang two songs during the 2008 inauguration ceremonies when Ma was sworn in for his first time. The president reportedly called Fei’s son after he learned the news of the singers death and told him that “he sorely misses her.”
The China Post reports that Feng Fei Fei caught her big break in 1971 when one of her songs was included in a compilation album. She released her debut album, “Wishing You Well,” the following year.
Feng Fei Fei earned the nickname “The Hat Diva” during her four decade career for her outlandish hats that she wore on stage. Yahoo News reports that the singer’s biggest hits include “I’m A Cloud”, “When I Hear Your Applause”, and “Chasing Dreams.”
