The event, Vong Tay Nhan Ai - Hoa Xuan Ca (Compassionate Hands - Spring Melody), features Vietnamese-American singers Elvis Phuong, Le Uyen, Quang Thanh and Kim Anh, who are well-known in the contemporary music scene.

Khanh Ly, 70, recently staged her first live show called Khanh Ly – Live Concert in Saigon in HCM City’s 7th Military Zone Gymnasium after leaving the country to settle in the US 41 years ago.

Ly and her colleagues have finished their Viet Nam tour performing for charity.

The musicians at the concerts in Da Lat will perform songs in praise of love, life and spring by famous composers, including Tring Cong Son, Pham Duy, Lam Phuong, Vu Thanh An and Nguyen Anh 9.

The show will take place at 8pm on December 31 at the Ngoc Lan Hotel in Nguyen Chi Thanh Street.

Vietnamese-American singers Giao Linh and Phuong Dung, and Vietnamese-French singer Hoa Mi will perform in a concert called Tuyet Pham Nhac Tinh - Dem Tinh Hong (Best Love Songs- Night of Love).  

The veteran singers will sing love songs by composers such as Hoang Thi Tho and Y Van that shot them to fame in the 1960s and 1970s.

“I moved to Viet Nam in 1988, but my love for music is still here,” said the 61-year-old Mi, who staged a solo performance in HCM City last year after 27 years of living away from her native land.

At the concert, Mi will perform several songs in both Vietnamese and French, which made her famous worldwide.

The show will open at 8pm on New Year’s Eve at the Edensse Resort & Spa in Tuyen Lam Park.
