Every so often, we hear rumors that have the ring of truth simply because they seem highly probable. All the parts seem to fit. And this is one. Tianshannet reported today (10.21.08) that Na Ying’s (那英) new album release will be accompanied by concerts in places such as Beijing, Chengdu, and Shanghai sometime in October, November, or December. The truly intriguing part of this story is the claim that Faye Wong (王菲) will appear at one of the concerts as a guest star. Even if this is pure speculation on an imaginative journalist’s part, it still seems plausible that these two “sisters” would plan to appear together. And just as Na Ying reintroduced Faye to the mainland audience back in 1998, it seems fated that she would again reintroduce Faye to the same audience a decade later. The video below is one of my all-time favorites. It’s a duet of Faye and Na Ying singing “Meet in 1998” at the CCTV Spring Festival Gala show. It would be fantastic to see them perform this song together once more.
