In high school, Tsai and her friends formed her first band, Twister, for which she sang.[10] Tsai first started her singing career by taking part in an MTV singing competition at the age of 18.

She accidentally won the champion in the competition with her rendition of Whitney Houston's No. 1 hit "Greatest Love of All" in the final round.[11] In March 1999, she was signed to Universal Music.[12]
