Singer Thanh Ha has a new image with the help of her current boyfriend Roland who helped her remix old Vietnamese classics into a new beat and feeling. As a result is a CD titled "The Evolution of Thanh Ha" premiering April 16, 2011 in Arlington, Texas. On the CD, Thanh Ha did a cover of "Nobody" by Wonder Girls. Check out the advertisement poster, pictures, and videos relating to this project. (On a side note, is it me or Thanh Ha's booty on the poster looks too enhanced?)
Below is a video of Thanh Ha and Roland duetted a song. This happened before they were together. Roland (who's not Vietnamese) requested to have a duet with Thanh Ha and she said he has to sing a Vietnamese song or they can't duet. Therefore Roland practiced a Vietnamese song and Thanh Ha was shocked when she heard him sing. If you want to know more about Thanh Ha's relationship with Roland, you can search up their interview videos with Kristine Sa on Heart to Heart.

I'm not sure how I feel about the "remix" of all of these songs. I guess in a way it is nice to bring a fresher feel to some of the classics. At the same time when I listened to the songs produced I don't have any feelings of excitement or amazed by it. I guess I'm not touched. I kind of prefer the original in this case. Vietnamese music, the old school ones have "soul" to them and they touch you in a special way. The remix took away that feeling for me.
