The First Diva of Vietnamese Pop Music - Ngoc Lan
Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Ngoc Lan was queen of the Vietnamese pop music industry and was adored by millions of Vietnamese fans from all over the world. At the height of her popularity, Ngoc Lan became stricken with Multiple Sclerosis which prevented her from continuing with her music career and ultimately claim her life on March 6, 2001. I had the privilege to know and love her personally. Here is my tribute to Ngoc Lan.

Can't Get Enough of Ngoc Lan
Just can't get enough of Ngoc Lan. She captivated so many hearts during her time here on earth and continues to this day. Ngoc Lan, for so many young Vietnamese-Americans and overseas Vietnamese in other places of the world, represented hope and inspiration. As she started out, she was just a young girl from a small town in Vietnam, and then became an iconic music sensation adored by fans from all over the world. It made many of us think and dream, that if she could make her dreams come true, so can the rest of us. That is why Ngoc Lan is so dearly loved.
