Princess Balenge—a.k.a. Rachel Liang—draws a big crowd at Telus TaiwanFest
Last night, I was among a surprisingly high number of Caucasians who decided to check out the free Princess Balenge concert on the lawn of the Vancouver Art Gallery.
The woman who's also known as Rachel Liang is a massive star in Taiwan after winning the Million Star television-show competition.
The newest Taipei idol was making her first appearance in Vancouver as part of the Telus TaiwanFest.
Even though I couldn't understand the lyrics to her Mandopop love songs, I came away impressed by her charismatic stage presence and her vocal range.
She clearly pleased the crowd of mostly young people of Asian descent, judging by their frequent ovations and the density of the audience.
