Taiwan superstar singer Chang Hui-mei has become the newest addition to a slew of big musical names under the EMI umbrella.
The singer, better known as A-mei, signed a contract on Monday with EMI Music, following fellow Asian pop divas Jolin Tsai and Stefanie Sun.
EMI threw a party-like press conference to welcome the star at Hong Kong’s luxurious Felix Restaurant at the Peninsula Hotel. The company even rented a helicopter to send A-mei to the scene.
EMI Music Asia chairman Norman Cheng said the company is proud to have A-mei on board and it will seek to explore a worldwide market for her.
A-mei also expressed her excitement and hopes that her new record company will help her develop a more shining career.
The 35-year-old burst onto the Mandopop scene in 1996 and soon became one of the best-selling artists in Asia.
