2020 marks Singaporean singer Stefanie Sun’s 20th anniversary in show business. The super-talented singer-songwriter kickstarted her career with Yan Zi in 2000 after she graduated from Nanyang Technological University with a degree in business studies. Her debut album was followed by My Desired Happiness, also in 2000, which cemented her status as The One to Watch.
Stefanie snagged multiple Best Newcomer awards that year and her first three albums went on to sell 1.5 million copies by Sept 2001. The Her World Young Woman Achiever (2001) continued to be popular in Singapore, Taiwan, China, Hong Kong and Malaysia. There’s of course, her National Day Parade theme songs which almost every Singaporean can sing with gusto, her flamboyant and energetic sold-out concerts and her bold coloured ‘dos (she once spotted a full head of neon orange hair).
