There You Are Achievement Celebration
Jessie Chung Receives Outstanding Achievement Award in the Music Industry
After wrapping up her radio interviews and launching show in Taiwan, Jessie Chung returned to Malaysia to attend the achievement celebration organized by her record label. Mr. Darren Choy, Managing Director of Warner Music Group Malaysia & Singapore and Chairman of the Recording Industry Association of Malaysia and Mr. Sein Way Tan, Future Entertainment & Music Group Australia representative, presented Jessie with the Outstanding Achievement Award in the Music Industry.
What Jessie Chung has achieved with her album There You Are is nothing short of miraculous, she has done the impossible, for a Malaysian artist at least. Her new album has recently shot right up to the most influential and authoritative chart in the Taiwanese music industry, Five Music, debuting at number two on the Top 5 Chart for international albums. Five Music’s Top 5 Chart is the leading Taiwanese music chart and the only chart in Taiwan solely based on album sales. Jessie is confirmed to be the first Malaysian singer to squeeze into this prestigious chart, overtaking Australian artist Sia, who is currently at third place, and placing right next to Lady Gaga, who is barely ahead by two points. Indeed, her album has placed among the works of elite international stars, and this is just the beginning. As the first Malaysian artist placing in Taiwan’s international chart’s top five, Jessie Chung is no doubt Malaysia’s pride and glory!
There You Are has so far sold more than 10,000 copies, and that is already an amazing feat in its own right. To encourage Jessie to soldier on and put on her best fight in next year’s tight schedule, Future Entertainment & Music Group Australia and Warner Music Malaysia honoured her with the Outstanding Achievement Award in the Music Industry, ensuring that Jessie’s There You Are will soar on to greater heights!
Managing Director of Warner Music Malaysia, Mr. Choy, expressed that Jessie Chung has been doing an incredible job in the music industry, and her accomplishments so far had been universally recognized. Surprisingly, in less than two months, the music videos for Jessie’s singles “There You Are” and “Drive My Heart” both surpassed a million views on YouTube. As for her third single “Someplace Honest”, it reached 800,000 views in merely a little more than a month. At the currently rate, its view count should be able to shatter the million mark sometime next week, the results will surely be even more surprising and awe-inspiring!
In his speech, Mr. Choy also stated that entering into the international English-speaking music scene is a great challenge per se. Many artists, when faced with adversity, choose to back off and give up, but Jessie is different. She has valiantly overcome so many obstacles, and has successfully become the first Chinese Malaysian to enter into the top three positions of an international English chart.
