Fish Leung, Asia's "Queen of Love Songs", returns to Beijing after a four-year absence with a solo concert, Today is Our Valentine's Day, on May 27.

"I want to have a huge karaoke bash. I hope everyone sings along with me," says the Malaysian-born singer.

Leung enjoys big success all over China, Singapore and in other Asian countries. She started singing at bars in Malaysia, and her fortunes have been on the rise ever since Taiwan veteran singer and producer Jonathan Lee spotted her in 1997. She released her first album in 1999.

Leung is famous for her romantic ballads and many have become karaoke hits, such as Courage and Happy Breakup. Many people have turned to her songs during the highs and lows of their relationships.

Her optimistic songs are easy to relate to, with straightforward lyrics and gentle melodies.

Leung says love ballads suit her best and she hopes listeners can see themselves in her stories. So far she has 12 solo albums under her belt.
