This year is the 25th anniversary of the death of “Asian Diva” Teresa Teng. Her moving voice was popular throughout the ethnic Chinese community.

Contestants self-record one of the seven designated songs, and send their singing film to OCAC as registration. Online registration and song submission will be open until 10 am on September 24, 2020. The organizers will then select 15 finalists.  The final will be held with contestants onsite in Song-Yi Hall at Soochow University on October 7. The first three and three “honorable mentions” will be chosen by the three professional judges. The first place will take home a prize of NT$100,000 and will have a chance to take the stage during the National Day party on October 9! All overseas compatriot students in Taiwan who love to sing are invited to participate in the competition. For more information, please go to the event website: https://edu.ocac.gov.tw/2020ocssinging
