“Princess Balenge,” Rachel Liang is a half Rukai, half Atayal singer in Taiwan who is featured in the second Million Star TV show. Since Rachel’s first debut as a singer, she has released four albums and been nominated for the Golden Melody Award for Best Newcomer Award. Rachel specializes in lively songs and has sung for numerous trendy soap opera drama theme songs. In addition to music, Rachel is also involved with TV dramas and movies, making her an artist with many talents.

Rachel had a unique childhood as her parents passed away when she was ten years old and was forced to move to an orphanage with her brother. As a result, Rachel had to rely on herself and began learning about religion and music to gain strength. She has now realized her love for singing, performing, and helping with the community. She does many performances for charities and has been an Eden Guardian Angel of Eden Foundation, a charitable organization devoted to caring for people in vegetative state, for five years. Come hear Rachel’s story through her talented singing!

巴冷公主 | 梁文音 演唱會

 

「巴冷公主」梁文音為台灣原住民魯凱族與泰雅族的混血兒,自第二屆星光大道脫穎而出,善於抒情與輕快的歌曲。曾入圍金曲獎最佳新人獎,出道至今發行4張專輯,演唱過無數膾炙人口的偶像劇歌曲;除歌曲演唱之外亦跨足電視戲劇與電影的演出,是影歌視多元發展的全方位藝人。

看似星途光明、一路順遂的超級新星梁文音,卻有著不同於一般人的成長故事。10多歲時父母親因故相繼離世,梁文音和弟弟住進了育幼院,只剩一位年紀亦很輕的姊姊在外半工半讀,家裡頓時失去依靠。

這段時間梁文音接觸到信仰與音樂,從中得到力量,並且愛上歌唱與表演;只要有機會,梁文音一定認真準備每一次的演出,也因此造就今日的佳績。因為這樣的生長歷程,她總是積極投入公益,主動參與各式義賣、義演,已擔任五年伊甸基金會的守護天使。梁文音覺得,自己擁有一個「暢快音符的童年」。

梁文音的外表甜美、笑容開朗,內在卻勇敢且堅強。她的音色細甜有如黃鶯出谷,聲線輕柔卻又帶著淡淡的哀愁與感傷,牽動聽者心中一個個往事與回憶;每首歌她都誠摯地訴說其中的故事,溫柔而堅定,和所有聽眾一起痛哭,學習勇敢,最後一起成長。
