Family members and leaders of the charitable foundation of the venerated pop icon Teresa Teng 鄧麗君 today visited Kensington Wade.

As one of the most successful and influential Asian pop singers in history, Teresa Teng is often referred to as the “Eternal Queen of Asian Pop.” The visit from the Teresa Teng Foundation to Kensington Wade, where students are immersed in both English and Chinese language and culture, demonstrates a shared commitment to education, music and cultural understanding.

Huw May said “The nascent collaboration between the Teresa Teng Foundation and Kensington Wade aims to create lasting partnerships that promote cultural exchange, language learning, and musical appreciation. The shared vision is to nurture the next generation of global citizens with a deep understanding and appreciation for both Eastern and Western music and cultures.”

During the visit, Kensington Wade students showcased their talents with a wonderful Chinese musical performance of Teresa Teng’s song – 但愿人长久leaving the esteemed guests thoroughly impressed.

Teng Chanfu 邓长富,  President of the Teresa Teng Foundation, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, saying ‘Seeing these students interpret Chinese classic songs so skilfully, expressing their passion for music in authentic Chinese, and having such a profound understanding of Chinese music and culture, is truly inspiring. Music is a bridge between cultures, there are no barriers with music’

Wang Jing, Deputy Head and Head of the Chinese Programme at Kensington Wade said “She was the first music idol that I had. Her elegant singing inspired me and taught me how to sing. It is so gentle yet powerful. She is such a legend and I will continue to share her music with our students!”
