Live Music Matters At Music Matters!
Sa Ding Ding, The Honeys and “We Will Rock You’s” MiG Ayesa join a fantastic
line up of young Asian talent to perform at
Music Matters – the Asia Pacific Music Forum.
Music Matters today announces a great line up of young Asian talent to perform live over three nights at Asia’s only music conference here in Hong Kong. Details follow: Tuesday June 3rd – Music Matters Opening Party in association with CETV
Venue: Club JJ’s at the Grand Hyatt, Hong Kong (1900-2200)

Featuring: Tia Ray and Zhong Chi (China).
Music Matters opens it’s doors at 1900 on Tuesday 3rd June at JJ’s at the Grand Hyatt with a
performance from two of China’s newest upcoming stars.
Tia Ray’s debut album wil be released in 2008 and when Tia Ray sings, people stop… and listen.
Listening to her soulful, passionate renditions of the songs of these great artists, one would never
imagine that Tia Ray, a native of China’s Hunan Province, has never received formal English
training, nor any formal training in singing or music.
Zhong Chi’s first album "Easy world" is about environmental issues and is produced and
published by her own company, SOMA ART. A talented singer & songwriter with a beautiful voice,
Zhong Chi is far from a traditional mando pop star.
CETV’s President Anthony Tse said, “CETV have been involved with Music Matters for three
years and we’re delighted to be supporting such great, new Chinese talent and placing them firmly
on an international stage in this historic Olympic year”.
