Tickets on Sale Now
Hollywood, Fla. (August 1, 2014) – Top Vietnamese singer and performer Mỹ Tâm will debut her dazzling "Divas Live" tour at Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Sunday, September 7 at 9 p.m. Special guests include Hồng Ngọc,Thu Phương, Thanh Thảo, Ngọc Huyền, Tâm Đoan, Lam Anh, Hương Tràm and MC Nguyễn Ngọc Ngạn. Tickets are on sale now.
Born in Ha Noi, the music mecca of Vietnam, Mỹ Tâm knew she would grow up to be a famous singer.
The incredible success of "Ước Gì" and "Hoạ Mi Tóc Nâu," off her "Yesterday & Now" (2003) album, propelled her to superstardom. She represented Vietnam in an international tour with PepsiCo and has been compared to the likes of Mariah Carey, with an extra bit of sass. Today, Mỹ Tâm is known as one of the top female ballad singers in Vietnam, winning the 2013 MTV Europe Music Award for "Best Southeast Asian Act" and a 2014 World Music Award for "World's Best Selling Vietnam Artist."
Born in the countryside of Vũng Tàu, Vietnam, Hồng Ngọc won a 1989 award for "Best Female Vocal Artist." With the success of her single "Vùng trời bình yên" from the album "Bao giờ người trở lại … Hãy đến đây đêm nay" (2002), she became a household name and one of the most influential female artists in Vietnam.
Thu Phương is a contemporary Vietnamese pop singer. With an eclectic performance style, she is widely
regarded as one of the top female performers in Vietnam since the mid '90s. Her dedication and passion for her craft have garnered her an impressive fan base. On "Về Đây Bên Em" (2013), Phương's newest album, she showcases an exciting, more playful side of her persona.
Best known for her hit song "Búp Bê Đẹp Xinh," Thanh Thảo has had a successful career in the entertainment industry since childhood. Starting out in films, she moved onto a career in music, where she mastered the pop punk sound through various music collaborations with famous Vietnamese writers such as Huy MC.
Beginning her career as a child star, Ngọc Huyền made her first appearance on Asia Production, showcasing her distinctive soprano voice. After performing her hit "Tron tinh voi nguoi," Huyền established herself and one of Vietnam's top country singers and is known for always performing in a traditional Vietnamese "áo dài."
Canadian-born singer Tâm Đoan began her career as a pop musician but eventually transitioned to the country genre with the hit "Tấm Ảnh Không Hồn." Her album "Chuyến Tàu Hoàng" (1998) showcased her progression toward a more mainstream, country-oriented sound, with only a small trace of pop.
Although Lam Anh started her career at an early age in Vietnam, her dream has always been to breakout in the U.S. In 2004, after joining Paris by Night, a popular Vietnamese musical variety show, she gained popularity with the hit "Để Ta Say" and appearances on Thúy Nga Productions, VietFace TV and other programs. With a huge fan base worldwide, strong voice and sexy dance moves, her name has become a staple in the entertainment industry.
Winner of Vietnam Idol 2013, Hương Tràm will be touring the U.S for the first time with the "Divas Live" tour. For this young, pop artist, singing alongside her musical idols has been her dream and inspiration since she joined her local church choir at the young age of 7.
MC Nguyễn Ngọc Ngạn is a Vietnamese writer and essayist who escaped the country by boat in 1978 and is considered the Dick Clark of Vietnam. His first published work was "The Will of Heaven," which was written in English and published by E.P. Hutton in New York in 1980. Ngạn has written 25 novels and short stories, all of which are considered best sellers in Vietnam. In 1992 he joined Thuy Nga as the master of ceremony for a Paris by Night video. Ngan's charm, wit, style of delivery and vast knowledge of Vietnamese culture became an instant hit.
