Trần Quang Vinh (Ho Chi Minh City, 18 May 1982), also known by his stage name Quang Vinh, is a Vietnamese-American pop singer.[1]

Biography[edit]

Quang Vinh was born on 18 May 1982 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. An aspiring singer from an early age, he participated in the local youth choir and performed frequently on the radio, television and children music festivals. He became popular with Mẹ hiền yêu dấu, Cho con, Thằng Bờm, Tây Du Ký, Trăng tròn, Tuổi của trăng, Cô giáo mới của em, Heal the world..., and was known as Hoàng Tử Sơn Ca (the Nightingale Prince).

In 1998, Quang Vinh went to the United States to study at Monsignor Bonner High School, Pennsylvania. Upon realising his dream of becoming a professional singer, he returned to Vietnam in 2000. He signed with Kim Loi Studio and his first album, Những Ngày Xưa Yêu Dấu, was released in 2001.

When his contract with Kim Loi Studio expired in 2003, Quang Vinh decided to change his music style and public image. His 4th album, Tình Yêu Tìm Thấy, earned him various prestigious music awards as the upcoming artist in 2003. His first live concert Tình Yêu Tìm Thấy in Hanoi was a success with more than 10,000 fans attending.

In 2006, Quang Vinh became the first Vietnamese artist to release a photo book. He is also the first Vietnamese artist to have an official website.

In 2006, Quang Vinh released the Four Season music CD collection:

  • Lời Tình Xuân in Spring.
