Taipei, Aug. 8 (CNA) Atayal singer Angel Tseng (曾宇辰), who was born with a cleft lip and
palate and craniofacial deformity and who was called “devil” due to her appearance during her childhood, will sing the theme song of the 2017 Summer Universiade in Taipei during its Aug. 19 opening ceremony.
Tseng will sing “Embrace the World” along with her six-member band, “I-Want,” which beat a total of 264 groups in a tough Universiade theme song competition last November.
Prior to that, the 26-year-old Tseng won the heart of the audience and judges of Taiwanese reality talent TV show Million Star (星光大道) with her “angel-like singing” in 2015.
With the story of her journey to conquer discrimination because of her unusual appearance, Tseng appeared in the company of her parents in Taipei Monday to promote the “Don’t Tag Me!” exhibition organized by the Noordhoff Craniofacial Foundation-Taiwan. [FULL STORY]
