Sarah Chen

Popular Taiwan '80s and '90s singer Sarah Chen Shu-Hua will not be attending the Rock Records 30th anniversary celebration concerts in November. Taiwan's first million record seller 21 years ago has been out of the limelight and living in seclusion after retiring in 1998. In 2003, Rock Records issued a collection of her songs called 'Letter to Shu-Hua' in hopes of encouraging her back to singing but without success. 5 years ago, friends revealed that her mother's sudden death began her onset of mental illness. Sarah's mother had guided her career and essentially acted as her agent. After that, Sarah took up Buddhism and lived in an apartment with father and older sister. According to reports, Sarah Chen has been suffering from depression ever since the death of her mother. More recently, Rock Records invited Sarah to participate in the anniversary concerts but spoke with her father by telephone who said that she was still ill. Sarah Chen sang the theme songs for many Chinese films including Green Snake, East is Red, Temptress Moon, Red Dust and Wing Chun, and also sang in C'est La Vie, Mon Cheri, Sister of the World Unite, With or Without You, Reunion in the Rain and other films. (Xinhua), 2
