Astounding Performance by Asia’s Leading Singer Frances Yip
Vancouver, BC – Frances Yip staged two amazing performances in Metro Vancouver over the weekend for over 1,800 fans from Canada and the United States. She helped raised an amount of $200,000 enabling S.U.C.C.E.S.S. to continue to support important social services and programs that have partial or no government funding.
“Fundraising is an integral part of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation’s mandate. Proceeds from events such as these two charity concerts can enhance S.U.C.C.E.S.S.’s ability to deliver the highest caliber of services to those otherwise would be underserved in Metro Vancouver,” said Sing Lim Yeo, Chair of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation.
Frances Yip truly justifies the description of “international star” and has garnered a fan base the world over. Throughout both evenings, Frances Yip performed her greatest hits songs in English, Cantonese and Mandarin. With 47 years in the business behind her, there is still so much for Frances Yip to give to the arts and to her devoted followers.
The Foundation is also pleased to have Richard Yuen, a well-known music composer and producer, to be the Music Director of these concerts. He toured and performed in Ontario and Quebec in the 70s and 80s.
