Chen Jia And LangGa Lamu: Who Is Better?

have written on both Chen Jia  and Thai teenager LangGa Lamu

Both of them have voices uncannily like Chinese singing legend Teresa Deng's.

It is not surprsing therefore that fans of either would try to compare them to see who is the better.

Like in the video below. 




However, it is unprofitable - nor desirable - to label one as an imitator and the other the genuine article.

Both of them sing Teresa Deng's songs out of a love for their idol.

Who are we to judge that one is just an imitator and the other not?

Chen Jia has loved Teresa Deng for as long or longer as LangGa Lamu.

LangGa Lamu since from very young too.

Both happen to be able to sing Teresa Deng's songs like they own them and happen to have voices sounding close to Teresa Deng's.

But no one will ever have the exact same voice as Teresa Deng's. Nor sing exactly the way she sang.

Does that diminish either?

Are we looking for a Teresa Deng clone?

Each has her own strengths and weaknesses.

Both are lovely to listen to.  We should thank the divine that they are not clones of the diva. 

Each has her own distinctive singing style and the way they express their interpretation of Teresa Deng's songs.

We can debate till kingdom come or the cows come home and yet nobody will be able to convince fans of either that one is 'better' and the other is not.

I enjoy Chen Jia and LangGa Lamu and I say power to both!

You like whom you like.

But none of the pettiness, please!

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
