Former member of Ba Con Meo praised Thanh Ha for singing well and said: “There are few singers who, when singing, touch my heart like that. I think having a soulmate appearing at the right time, singing to me is a blessing. very wordy thing”. The overseas vocalist replied, “I also get lyrics when someone composes songs for me.”
For nearly 30 years in the profession, Thanh Ha has only been singing Phuong Uyen since the two knew each other a year ago. In April, during a private concert in Ho Chi Minh City, the original voice of Da Nang performed the song If only we didn’t love each other by Phuong Uyen. The two sat side by side on a chair, sometimes the musician leaned and put his arm around Thanh Ha’s shoulder. The singer gave former member Three Cats a kiss on the cheek to thank her for helping her organize the program.
Thanh Ha’s voice serves as a fulcrum for Phuong Uyen, in exchange for the musician’s talent for the trust of overseas vocalists. As a joint program, the musician calculates and counts so that each song and performance honors Thanh Ha’s inner voice. Former member of Ba Con Meo said: “In each song, the two sit and talk a lot. I passionately talked to Ha about what I would do with my composition.”

In addition to music, the two share everything in life. Before meeting Phuong Uyen, Thanh Ha was depressed because of weight gain and an unsatisfactory love story. The singer said that there were many sleepless nights, feeling lonely and alone. She said: “There is nothing more terrible than being with someone like a habit, no longer loving, not wanting to talk, even cuddling. The more I hold on to that habit, the more scared I become and so I have no control. I can’t control my weight. I seem to have given up and don’t want to find happiness because I think it will end like that and I’m afraid of love.”
In the middle of last year, Phuong Uyen went to the US to visit her family as well as participate in a number of overseas programs. They have many opportunities to meet and talk. Gradually, the two felt that they were in agreement, so the singer took the initiative to find a musician to confide in. Former member of Three Cats said: “Every day she and I talk for about 5 hours. Ha’s stories can be written into a thrilling memoir. Suddenly, I feel a responsibility to help. because they both share the same love for the job.”
In the music night in early June, Thanh Ha wore her youth outfit 20 years ago and talked about the joy of wearing old clothes. She said she had tried all sorts of ways to lose weight before, but it didn’t work. However, when Phuong Uyen accompanies her, she is more motivated to practice. “I tell this story so people understand how important love is to me. Without love, I wouldn’t be able to sing,” the singer said.
