LOS ANGELES, CA-
“… The first act to perform on Sunday was the Vietnamese singer Mỹ Anh. Wearing a brightly colored, and comfortable-looking, fleece pullover, I immediately got the sense that her music would be giving us those same kinds of bright, cheery, and gentle feels as well. I was right.
First off, I absolutely loved the timbre of Mỹ Anh’s voice. It’s crystalline clear and totally fits the underlying music she sings over. Second, I absolutely loved the style of her music. It’s got a modern pop/R&B gloss, but it really feels rooted in some late 80s/early 90’s sonic motifs. I hate playing the comparison games, but I was getting some vintage multi-platinum Debbie Gibson vibes if Debbie Gibson had an extra serving of soul. Her performance was bright and delightful and was a joy to watch. I didn’t know who she was prior to this performance, but every time she smiled, I felt the urge to smile myself … and that says a lot.
I read somewhere that she had been accepted into Berklee College of Music for the 2020 school year, but decided to stay at home with her family. While I typically encourage artists to further their musical education, I think that the series of singles that she’s released after making that decision is enough proof that maybe she doesn’t need a school to tell her what to do. Keep an eye on this one…”
