In addition to the domestic songs, she sang alternatively American and French music when audiences requested. Gradually, Le Thu became famous for being an important singer of big discos in Saigon, such as Queen Bee, Freedom and Ritz. In 1968, Le Thu collaborated with Jo Marcel at Queen Bee dance hall. As well as singing every night, she also signed a recording contract for Jo Marcel, starting the most glamorous period of her singing life.
After 1975, Le Thu joined the Diamond Group to perform. Around 1978, Le Thu opened a coffee shop Thu Uyen on Phan Ton and Tan Dinh streets in collaboration with Thanh Lan and musician Le Van Thien. She flew to the top in her singing career but was unhappy in love. She married when she was 19 years old and the marriage quickly broke up after only 2 months. Another marriage also failed but 3 daughters, and 4 lovely, grandchildren kept her very happy as did her audiences. Le Thu has lived in southern California since 1980, releasing lots of music tapes and collaborating with major music centers in the United States. Each year she returns to Vietnam to perform once in about 2 months. Le Thu said that her life work was to sing to people.
