Jazz queen Tuyet Loan, as she is nicknamed, will perform live in HCMC next week in a show dedicated to her storied career in music.

Tuyet Loan, often referred to as the "Queen of Jazz" by local audiences, will give a live solo performance in Ho Chi Minh City on April 5 to commemorate her 48 years of singing.

The 62-year-old diva, who is popular for her impromptu performing style, said that she cannot wait for the show, where she plans to perform the pop and jazz hits which made her famous.

"50 years of singing is a great landmark. But my age and health cannot be counted in mere years. It's time for me to have the live show, since I am healthy and ready to deliver my best possible performance for my beloved fans," said Loan.

Loan said her April 5 appearance will be her first and last show solely dedicated to her.

"I usually perform at the Sax n' Art cabaret from Thursday through Sunday, but I truly wanted a show of my own," she explained.

"This show will be filmed and released in DVD as a lifetime gift to me, my friends and all jazz-lovers. I have not thought of retirement, but that day will come, sooner or later. My children want me to move to the US to stay with them, and I am considering it. Maybe I will leave Vietnam next year. But I will come back and forth between Vietnam and America. Otherwise, the nostalgia would kill me, for sure."

Loan also revealed that the show will gather friends of hers, including noted musicians Tran Manh Tuan, Nguyen Tan Quoc, Thanh Tan, Ly Huynh Long and Phu Toan.

The show will take place at the We Lounge bar at 8 Le Quy Don Street in District 1.
