What a CNY for this Seremban lass. Many might now know that she won the unbelievably popular and harsh singing competition in Taiwan, One Million Star. She is just 22, but many would not know her history and tenacious climb to be a recording artiste.
She entered Malaysian Idol's first season in 2004, fumbled badly at auditions, but was still invited back to perform at the finals with a reverberating Kaulah Segala Nya. That was 7 years ago. She did improve when she entered Astro Star Quest in 2008.
The never say die, but keep learning attitude kept her going, and she made it after 7 years .... and she is still just 22. Now she has a recording contract with Warner Music Group.
Oh, btw, she also went and got her chemistry degree from UKM in between all that.

the first song during the finals, near perfect, imagine Shunza/Tanya singing A-Mei:
a spine tingling duet What's Up:
tackling Beyonce's Listen with aplomb:
if you need convincing, have a listen of her rendition of Coming Home, its about 5 minutes into the video:
