Sarah (Chen Shu Hua ) was born on
May 14, 1958 in Taiwan, although I have been told that 1959 might be the
correct year. She was hailed as a 'genius child star' at the age of 8, winning
first prize in the Broadcasting Ballad Competition. By 1967, she was recording
singles for Angel Records, releasing her debut album in 1973 with Seamount
Records. Several of Sarah's recordings are included on the Campus Folk 8 volume
set. Her music won her many accolades during the 1970s, 80s and 90s ...
touching the hearts of many people in a unique way. There is a maturity and
depth in her music that sets her apart from most.
Her disappearance from public life in 1998 remains somewhat of a mystery, although the death of her mother affected her very deeply. Life can be very complex, and particularly for those in the public eye. It often amazes me how musicians and actors keep going as long as they do. There is much more to life than being on stage, as Greta Garbo and others have shown. Having started so young, retiring at 40 is maybe not so strange. Listening to Sarah is a very special experience, and one soon realizes that she is much more than a singer and musician ...
There are two You Tube channels which are dedicated to Sarah's work:
