RITA CHAO - Pop A-Go-Go. For William's Dad

Hi William,
Remember her? I think your dad could have been one 60s fan who listens to Rita Chao. Singers like Rita and Sakura Teng were popular with the non-english speaking crowd. But she's eye candy and was most popular then.

If you've seen her performing at one of our venues please write in. Rita was a draw with a-go-go, hala-hala and off beat cha-cha enthusiasts with music from the west like Woolly Bully etc. But where is Rita now? Anyone?

There are many Rita Chao websites at GOOGLE SEARCH.

Hi Andy:

Rita Chao already retired from singing and btw she is a distant relative of my late dad. Sad to know that I last heard she was helping or working in a church in Yishun. Rita will be about in her late 50's.

In the late 60's she did a performance in Penang, Malaysia together with Sakura. My late Ah Kor "took" care of them while during their short stint of stay. Not sure if I can still find that old photo taken in Penang.

Cheers.

Jane
