Minh Tuyet's Biography & Profile
Minh Tuyet, also known as the Vietnamese pop princess, is one of the best selling artists in the Vietnamese communities across the world. As an exclusive singer for the prestigious Thuy Nga Productions for the past four years, Minh Tuyet regularly appears on their flagship Paris By Night music video. Her ascension to stardom was swift and solid thanks to her gifted vocal. She has a deep soulful voice, often blended with a tinge of rawness that heightens a sense of bitterness in many love ballads that she recited. Not only is Minh Tuyet a talented singer, her stunning beauty has been known to captivate the audiences world wide on Paris By Night. To date, Minh Tuyet has released numerous albums produced by both Thuy Nga and Tinh Productions, the music production company that had brought her name to the Vietnamese communities in the early 2000s.
Born on October 15th in a family of four sisters and two brothers, Minh Tuyet had a passion for music early in her childhood. She started to perform in public when she was a little girl too young to remember how old she was. Her father is a music enthusiast who also wrote his own songs primarily as a hobby. Two of Minh Tuyet's elder sisters are singers Cam Ly and Ha Phuong. Although the three sisters practiced singing and dancing together in their childhood, each pursued a different type of music and established a unique image of their own.
Minh Tuyet started her professional career at the age of 17 when she first appeared on the music stage at Trong Dong in Saigon. With a strong passion for singing, Minh Tuyet was determined to follow her sister Cam Ly's footsteps and pursue a career in singing. Initially her parents had not approved her wishes fearing that she would not be able to handle a life in public eyes. But in the end, with the hope that a career in singing would be rewarding, they granted their youngest daughter the permission to fulfill her dreams.
The year 1997 marked an important turn in her life as Minh Tuyet came to the United States under the international student status. It was a complex decision made with love, tears, and hope. Not only had the departure from her loving family been a difficult experience for her, the early days in the foreign country with a limited language ability proved to be extraordinarily challenging.
The unexpected path to her professional singing career overseas started when a music store owner discovered her voice and introduced Minh Tuyet to Tinh Productions. She was immediately awarded an exclusive contract with Tinh and began recording for their CDs. Many of her first performances such as Quan Vang Mot Minh, Lang Thang, Bo Ben La were remarkably successful. The heights of her career with Tinh Productions were reached in 2002 when they released her first solo video Ve Cuoi Duong Tinh, which to many of her fans is still her best video accomplishment to date.
The dreams of her life finally came true when Minh Tuyet joined Thuy Nga Productions in 2002. She first appeared on Thuy Nga stage in Paris By Night 65 reciting the lovely song, Trai Tim Lo Lam. Although love ballads are her strong suit, Minh Tuyet was also successful with folk music, and Chinese/Japanese translated songs. She was known to undertake many diverging images on Thuy Nga stage including seductive, elegant, traditional, demure, and Japanese! Capitalizing on her enormous fan base, Thuy Nga has awarded their best selling singer many of their copyrighted songs, for example, Ngay Xua Anh Hoi, Vi Ngot Doi Moi, Da Khong Yeu Thi Thoi, just to name a few. They debuted their first solo music DVD ever featuring Minh Tuyet - Mo Nhung Ngay Nang Len. Although she is known with numerous hits in her almost ten years overseas, the only one song that is truly synonymous to the name Minh Tuyet is Tham Goi Ten Anh, a Chinese translated song and one that the artist herself loves so much that she would rarely miss at any of her concerts.
Today, Minh Tuyet has millions of fans world wide. It would be quite rare to find another singer so charming, so talented, so popular as Minh Tuyet. But let it be known that her success did not come without blood, sweat and tears. Minh Tuyet has spent a good part of her life to overcome hardships both at home and abroad to fulfill the only dream of her life - to sing for her fans. So to put it all in a simple perspective, she has succeeded, and succeeded big time.
