The event will include six shows featuring Tam’s popular pop songs which will be performed in an acoustic and lo-fi style.

Tam, known as the Vietnamese Queen of Pop, said: “The first three shows will be held on January 7 and 16, and February 14, while the other shows will be announced later.”

“The show promises to bring audiences at home my best music and the feeling of being parts of a live music show,” Tam said.

The singer will invite leading Vietnamese composers to join her show.

She added: “The first show will highlight music producer and composer Duc Tri, and his compositions such as Muộn Màng Là Từ Lúc (Late from the Beginning) and Nếu Như (If).”

Tri, a graduate in composing at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, worked with Tam in her latest album called “Tâm 9” released in 2017.

The album, which includes 13 songs in pop soul, was released in late 2017 and sold 5,000 copies in the first hour of its release. It has sold more than 20,000 copies.

The album ranked 10th on the Billboard’s World Albums chart the third week in January 2018, according to sales data compiled by Nielsen Music. 

Tam, a native of Da Nang Province, studied at the HCM City Music Conservatory. She worked as a professional singer when she was at school. 

In 1999, she signed an exclusive contract with Vafaco, the city’s leading music producer. Her first single album, Nhé Anh (You), became a recording phenomenon in the local market. 

Her top hit, Mãi Yêu (Love Forever), helped the singer bring home the Bronze Medal at Asian Golden Singers Festival in Shanghai in 2001. 

Tam, who sings in Vietnamese and English, also works as a songwriter and music producer. She has released nine albums. 

She was the first Vietnamese singer to sign a contract with the Korean entertainment company Nurimaru Pictures.   

She was selected as one of "Global Pop Sensations You’ve Never Heard Of" by ABC News in the US in 2010.  

She became the first Vietnamese singer to participate in the Asia Song Festival in Seoul in 2004 and received a Plaque of Appreciation and Best Contribution Award from the Korean Minister of Culture and Tourism.

Tam was also the first Vietnamese singer to receive the Best Asian Artist at the Korean Mnet Asian Music Awards in 2012 and MTV Europe Music Award’s Best Southeast Asia Act in 2013.

She was awarded the World Music Awards’ World's Best Selling Vietnamese Artist in 2014, and the Big Apple Music Award’s Best Selling Artist of Asia title in 2015.

Tam has won many top prizes at the country’s leading music awards like Cống Hiến (Dedication) in 2015 and 2018.

Her charity fund, My Tam Foundation, was launched in 2008 and has supported many poor children and students.
