Empire Hotel Subang hosted Mandopop songstress Penny Tai at the weekend. The Malaysian-born singer songwriter and 2015 Famine ambassador was in Kuala Lumpur for the World Vision 30-Hour Famine event held at Stadium Petaling Jaya.
Penny moved to Taiwan in 1999 to pursue a career in singing and songwriting. In2014, she won the Best Mandarin Female Singer award for her album Unexpected and won Best Album Producer for her work on Chinese singer Koala Liu’s album Embrace at the 25th Golden Melody Awards (GMA) in Taiwan.
In 2015, Buddha Jump, a Taiwanese indie-rock pop band fronted by Tai, won the Best Music Arrangement and Best Band awards for their album Let You See at the 26th Golden Melody Awards in Taiwan.
As the 30-Hour Famine Ambassador, Penny visited Beautiful Gate Foundation for the disabled, one of the beneficiaries of the funds raised this year. While there, she learned about the needs of the disabled through an interactive nutrition campaign conducted by a nutritionist. She also learned how the funds raised by the 30-Hour Famine will benefit the care centre.
Penny is committed to her role as the spokesperson for the global hunger movement. Through her involvement, she hopes that more youth will work together to secure a better future for children living in hunger and poverty.
