Laure Shang

21 Feb

The result of watching nine weeks of I am a Singer (我是歌手)?

I have a become a huge fan of Laure Shang (尚雯婕). She’s a fabulous singer with immense range and feel, but with her own brand of funk and personality that is very rarely seen with such class these days. I love her song choices, her voice – really an awesome singer.


Her rendition of 你怎么舍得我难过 is really captivating in a no-frills kind of way. Baring her vulnerability just as it is, not covering it up with histrionics or anything of the sort.


And then her achingly beautiful rendition of 可惜不是你 evoked so many lost moments and vanished memories for me. She is so simple in her presentation, simple yet thoughtful. It really gets you in a very special way.


She’s even fun in a foreign language! Even though her English sounds a touch rough, she just goes for it with panache. Go girl!
