Fish Leong (simplified Chinese: 梁静茹; traditional Chinese: 梁靜茹; pinyin: Liáng Jìngrú, born 16 June 1978) is a Malaysian singer. Having sold more than 18 million records, she achieved popularity and success in mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, and Malaysia.

In 2016, Leong became the first Malaysian Chinese singer to perform at Lincoln Center in New York City. She performed to a sold-out crowd as part of her "Tu T’appelles L’amour 2016" concert.[1]

Life and career[edit]

Leong was born in Bahau, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia.[2] She debuted her singing career in Taiwan and signed to Rock Records in October 1997. She then adopted the English name "Fish", because the last character of her Chinese name "茹" sounds like "fish" (魚) in Cantonese.[3] Her debut album, Grown Up Overnight, was released in September 1999. Her singing career managed to take off after the release of her second album, Courage (2000).[4]

In February 2010, Leong married with Taiwanese wine trader Tony Chao in Boracay, Philippines, and their first child Anderson Chao was born in April 2014.[5]
