April 14th, 2015

FindYourStampsValue.com would like to introduce to our readers' attention a set of stamps in commemoration of Teresa Teng by Chunghwa Post. The issue consists of four stamps that will be released and put into circulation on the 15th of April.

Teresa Teng was an influential Taiwanese singer famous throughout Asia and in Chinese communities around the world. She enthusiastically participated in concerts for ROC troops and for overseas Chinese communities, giving performances in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, the United States, and Southeast Asian nations, among other places.

She was known as a "patriot performing artist", "the military's sweetheart", and "the queen of her generation's singers". A powerful demonstration of musical artistry that resonated with audiences everywhere, her voice comforted countless souls.

One of the true superstars of the Asian singing world in the last half of the 20th century, she helped to advance Chinese pop. On both sides of the Taiwan Strait ‒ and in fact anywhere there are ethnic Chinese ‒ her songs are still popular even today, nearly 20 years after her death.
