Sing, Wing!

Sing, Wing! This is so good: "Hi, I am Wing! I immigrated to New Zealand with my family about ten years ago from Hong Kong. I have been learning singing in New Zealand and I do performances in Rest Homes and Hospitals. Don't miss her, eh, "treatment" of the Carpenters, and Summertime.

Wing hasn't been the same since she split from Paul McCartney.

"Few artists ever gave such unalloyed pleasure as Florence Foster Jenkins, yet this extraordinary soprano had the wisdom not to overdo a good thing."

There is an air of innocence to this that I find touching.

Don't worry, carter, the cynical and bitter soul of the Internet will soon destroy any touching innocence.

Brings to mind Leona Anderson's unforgettable Habanera from 'Carmen.' Kinda sweet in its sublime awfulness.

Another justifiably neglected talent.

That is classic, but I hate it when someone completely matches a negative stereotype. In the cartoon version, she would have Mr. Wong or Charlie Chan as her manager.

I'm sure she's a complete and valuable personality in person, but these mp3 files just make my ears bleed.

After hearing her version of "Yesterday Once More," I really wished it was. How do you make your ears stop bleeding?
