I didn't know her, but used to see her performing outside AMK Hub a few times. She does have a good voice for LIVE performance. RIP

SINGAPORE - Local musician Tong Yek Suan, who rose to prominence in 1998 after performing a remix version of xinyao classic Xi Shui Chang Liu (Friendship Forever) with singers Joi Chua and Leelian Chua for National Day, died at home on Sunday (March 10) at the age of 48.

Also known as Yu Xuan, she was one of three members of performing band The ETC, which often busked in the heartlands.

Tong was hospitalised on Friday after she had fainted thrice in the day, once while The ETC was performing, Chinese-language daily Lianhe Wanbao reported. She was discharged on Saturday.

In a Facebook post on Sunday, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong paid tribute to Tong.

He had met the group on Friday, when they had performed at a dinner which he attended.

"She was a talented singer and accomplished songwriter," PM Lee said. "When not at her day job as a vocal coach, her passion for music would see her with her group busking in the heartlands, often at Hougang Mall."

 
 

Tong had a medical condition which prevented her from standing for long periods, and she would sing while sitting on a chair or in a wheelchair, he added.

 

Nee Soon GRC MP Louis Ng said in a Facebook post on Sunday about Tong: "Thank you for sharing your love for music with everyone, thank you for all your busking sessions in the heartlands and thank you for nurturing the next generation of buskers."

 

Tong would often busk with students at hawker centres, in addition to her performances with The ETC.

The musician's last radio interview, which was recorded two weeks before her death, will be broadcast on 96.3 Hao FM at 7.10pm on Monday.

Tong's memorial service will be held at Block 105 Aljunied Crescent until Thursday. She will be cremated at Mandai Crematorium on Thursday.
