Teresa presents her award-winning song on Japanese TV for best newcomer in 1974. This is the song that gave her the breakthrough into the Japanese entertainment scene. She was already a star in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia,etc., in fact any land and every country where a Chinese population exists. The brave move to Japan paved the way for her to become an International Superstar. Unforgettable song, unforgettable singer! She will always live on in our hearts!
