Pham Quynh Anh (born 1987) is a Belgian, ethnic-Vietnamese singer. Her parents were born in Vietnam and immigrated to Belgium, where they met, married and gave birth to Quynh Anh.
When Quynh Anh was 13 years old, her father persuaded her to compete in the TV singing competition "For Glory," held by Belgiums RTBF Television.Upon winning the competition, she met her manager, who introduced Quynh Anh to her producer. The producer made possible Quynh Anh's duet "J'espère" with French-hit singer Marc Lavoine. With "J'espère," Quynh Anh followed Lavoine on tour to France, Switzerland and Belgium. In 2002 she signed a contract with Rapas Centre, a French-branch of Universal.
Quynh Anh reached international popularity in 2006 with her French song "Bonjour Vietnam," composed by Lavoine and co-written by Lavoine and Yvan Coriat, when it accidentally appeared on the Internet. It is stated that the people of Vietnam were especially moved by the lyrics and by the ethnic- and cultural-yearning of foreign-born Vietnamese.
Due to its popularity, "Bonjour Vietnam" was translated into English by Guy Balbaert and is called "Hello Vietnam." The English version is also accompanied with a draft-music video. In May 2008, Quynh Anh sang the English version of the song in Paris by Night 92, an on-going Vietnamese language musical variety show. It is claimed that a Vietnamese version of the song will be released.
Quynh Anh will release her first solo project with her first single as the English version "Hello Vietnam." In an interview with "Oh My News," Domenech, manager of Rapas Centre, said that Quynh Anh will release her album "Bonjour Vietnam" that will be composed of 15 songs. The album is stated to be released in the near future. The Internet video- and lyric-circulation of "Hello Vietnam" is not the final version, according to Domenech.
