A Chinese Song: 一剪梅 A sprig of Plum Blossom

Fei Yu Ching 费玉清, Taiwan's famed singer is going to have a farewell concert for his fans. Fei Yu Ching probably comes from a singing family. Chang Fei 张菲, his eldest brother who presently appears in a variety programme in TV, Big Shot Fei Ge Show is a singer as is his sister, Jenny Fei who in 1991 became a buddhist nun and adopted the name Heng Shu 恒述法师. Don't know if his siblings have any popular songs in their belts but in the 80s when Taiwanese TV series was a yawn, there was this series where the theme song was sang by Fei Yu Ching. The song A sprig of Plum Blossoms 一剪梅, I suppose, has been popular to this day. His Good Night Song 晚安曲 which ends the day's broadcast for China Television, to me pales by comparison but then one man's meat is another man's poison. Fei Yu Ching will be performing in Resorts World Genting, Pahang for two days it seems. I bet the concert wouldn't be complete without him belting out 一剪梅.
