Asian Ripoff XV - Shirley Kwan

What do you get when you have an English song from a Swedish band sung in Cantonese?

Artist: Shirley Kwan

The original is still better and edgier but this is one of the best covers I've heard. Listen To Your Heart is an extremely difficult song to sing (especially the 2nd half). Shirley Kwan has an extremely strong and crisp voice and is able to sing the song at it's fullest. Most of the time, cover songs are often changed or sped up to make it easier for a poor singer to sing.
