American Pop Singer Heather Schmid has found a place performing in China. Heather has developed a solid foothold, with more than 8 shows and tours through out China. From big cities like Beijing and Shanghai, to smaller cities like YueYang and PingXing, Heather has filled arenas and performance halls with eager audience members and her own pop/rock music.

Heather is fast becoming a familiar face in China as her song ‘Mo Li Hua’ plays on the radio and on ipods, her radio and TV interviews become more widespread and charity reach more well known.
Heather sang from her latest album ‘Goddess Awaits’ two of the most popular singles. Heather’s second song performed, ‘Tell Me Your Story’ is about Heather’s involvement with children from a small village north of Hefei, China. In association with the Chi Heng Foundation, Heather visited the children to understand their struggles with HIV/AIDS in this city. All proceeds from ‘Touching Down’, Heather’s first single and the first song performed of the evening, benefit these children. During the performance the screens displayed photos of the children and from Heather’s visit and of the small village.
Then, Heather returned to her operatic roots with the aria ‘Quando m’en voh’ from La Boheme, to rousing audience support and surprise. Performing in a red gown from ‘Tony Bowls Collection’ and Swarovski crystal earrings, necklace and bracelet, the lights and 3 tiered staging wowed the crowd who rose to their feet at the end of the performance.
But, the night could not end without Heather’s version of the traditional song ‘Mo Li Hua’.

Cell phones, cameras and video cameras were raised to capture the moment.
