Singing Legend Teresa Teng Dazzles During Her 60th Birthday Bash At Madame Tussauds Hong Kong
HONG KONG (28 January 2013) – Madame Tussauds Hong Kong honoured one of Asia’s greatest voices of all time today, with the unveiling of Teresa Teng’s all-new restyled wax figure, just in time for her momentous sixtieth birthday. To celebrate this significant milestone, the attraction invited Teng’s brother and a legion of her fans to attend a simple, yet meaningful commemorative ceremony.
Teresa Teng’s wax likeness is dressed in a graceful black Chinese cheongsam that is delicately embroidered with a magnificent multi-coloured peacock, a replica of one of her most unforgettable costumes from her Indonesia concert back in 1977. Combined with her charming smile, this all-new look is reminiscent of her elegance, and captivating voice.
In preparation for this special occasion, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong decorated the singer’s private alcove with hundreds of roses, which are associated with her sweet and hypnotising voice. Mr Chang-fu Teng, Teresa Teng’s brother, shared some of his most vivid memories of his sister during a chitchat session with Kelly Mak, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Hong Kong. “It’s very heartwarming to see so many fans continue to support my sister and her work, even after so many years,” said Mr Teng.
To make the event even more memorable, dozens of fans from the Hong Kong Teresa Teng’s Club and Teresa Teng (Universal) Association attended to show their love and adoration for their idol. As the event’s grand finale – Mr Chang-fu Teng, Kelly Mak and a group of enthusiastic fans – posed with and snapped a group photo with the superstar’s dazzling looking wax figure. Teresa Teng’s wax likeness will be on display at the Hong Kong Glamour starting today.
Teresa Teng was one of Asia’s most revered singers. Even today, her songs are regarded as classics and some of her most well-known melodies are: “The Moon Represents My Heart”, “I Only Care About You”, “Tian Mi Mi”, and “Slow Walk Along The Road Of Life”.
