Not sure if Ho Ngoc Ha has been puffing or not, but her voice has gotten very raspy as if the nicotine has rubbed her timbre. Her rendition of Trinh Cong Son’s “Mot Coi Di Ve” is rough on the surface yet smooth underneath, and the result is hypnotic. Even her live performance of “Unchained Melody” is somehow captivating. Her anorexic figure and fragile voice are a reminiscent of Amy Winehouse. She sings like she’s going to break down, yet she is surprisingly capable of hitting the high notes when you’re not expecting her to. Now I can’t wait to see this chick at a concert.
