She long drew comparisons to Madonna but was in a league of her own, rising to fame in HK bars as a young teen. Later she played stadiums worldwide in her legendary gangtai style and unusual contralto voice - right up to her untimely death aged 40. She was originally cast as the lead in House of Flying Daggers before her sudden demise, too.
