Sarah Chen is a Taiwanese singer[1] who became famous during the late-1980s and early-1990s. Her most famous hit songs, many resulting from her collaborations with songwriter Jonathan Lee, include Dream to Awakening 夢醒時分 and Is it Right to Love You? 這樣愛你對不對. Her 1989 album Talk to You, Listen to You 跟你說聽你說 became the first album to reach a million sales in Taiwan.

After she retired from Taiwan's entertainment circle in 1998, many rumors have surfaced concerning her re-entry but none have been confirmed to be true.
