Taipei, Sept. 13 (CNA) Taiwanese diva Jody Chiang (江蕙) concluded the last of her 25 farewell concerts around the island at Kaohsiung Arena on Sunday with a ceremony to lock away one of her microphones, signaling the end of her singing career spanning more than three decades.
During the ceremony, Chiang slowly placed one of her most precious microphones into a jewelry box that was showered by some 10,000 keys from the rooftop.
The 54-year-old then shut the box and locked it with a key before bowing to the audience.
Microphones have been the most precious tool in her singing career and she wanted to mark the end of her career with the ceremony, Chiang said.
Chiang opened the first of her 25 farewell concerts in Taiwan on July 25 after ticket selling systems were unable to cope with intense demand for her farewell concerts. [FULL STORY]
