    The slow-loading of the page is because there is music preparing to play. The background song is Sarah singing Song of 4 Seasons. It is 320 kbps which is the highest mp3 quality.  To stop this music, please go to the foot of this page, and click 'pause' on the small player.  To lower the volume, click and 'drag' the player's speaker icon down the scale. The player is set in high volume as default, which I find too high.

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:
