Special TV Nights tonight in association with Universal Music Group Present... Karen Mok
Karen Mok, one of the most successful Asian recording artists of all time, released her debut English-language albumSomewhere I Belong in the UK in March 2013.
A genuine superstar in Asia, she has 15 hugely successful albums under her belt, a massive 36 million followers on Chinese microblog service Weibo and made history as both the first Chinese artist to star in a Broadway musical and the first celebrity in Asia to launch her own fragrance and lingerie brand.
From Hong Kong and with Chinese, Welsh, Persian and German heritage, Mok is a multi-award-winning musician and actress who has repeatedly proved that she is one of the most distinguished global talents of her generation.
Recorded in Shanghai during 2012, Somewhere I Belong is an album with global appeal that features Mok’s inimitable take on songs composed by a broad palette of artists and bands ranging from Cole Porter to Portishead, Chris Isaak to Sting and George Gershwin to The Beatles. Reflecting her roots, Mok has included two Chinese songs, including one from the heyday of Shanghai’s swinging jazz scene in the 1930s and ’40s. She also plays the traditional Chinese instrument the guzheng throughout the album.
Support comes in the form of Bugge Wessletoft before Karen and after Karen, a jazz quartet featuring Graeme Blevins, Phil Robson, Sam Burgess and James Powell.
