I think some asian actress-turned-singers who aren't all that bad in singing would be people like Angela Zhang (who really should stick to singing cause her acting is pretty bad), the older HK actors/actresses like Liza Wang, Adam Cheng etc. and the 4 heavenly kings as well. One HK actress who i think can sing very well would be Sammi Cheng. Faye Wong acts and sings as well. Certain TVB actors like Bowie Lam and Gigi Lai handle both singing and acting very well too.Originally Posted by Sparky
Ady does sounds softer than usual when she sings which is pretty weird because her voice is pretty loud when she speaks normally. I guess it's probably because she has a weak voice or cannot hold the note too long or maybe was told to sing soft. But i do think she cannot really hold a note long enough because she tends to go either off pitch or sound breathless towards the ned of the note.
As for the "Bu Gong Ping" song, yep it's probably Ady's first attempt to sing professionally way back when she was acting for "The Outsiders II". She sounds pretty bad; pitching and tempo problems which is made even more apparent since she's just singing w/o any music backup except for a soft piano piece which makes her mistakes pretty obvious. I wouldn't say that song is nicer than her current ones because i think "Bu Gong Ping" is a pretty nice song but she probably sounds slightly better now as compared to then when she sang BGP. BTW, i dont think BGP was edited, it sounds pretty natural to me and wasnt an officially released song so i think they wouldnt have bothered editing it.
I can upload the song if anyone's interested
