She is a mezzo-soprano with a deep, powerful and clear voice that fits her into a variety of genres, including pop, dance and rock.
In her live shows and concert tours, she sings 20-30 songs, and maintains a strong and passionate voice.
Her best-known songs are "Hoạ Mi Tóc Nâu" (Brown-Haired Nightingale) and "Ước Gì" (I Wish).
