Zhou started acting 1935, but she achieved stardom in 1937 in Street Angel, when director Yuan Muzhi cast her as one of the leads as a singing girl.
She became known as “The Golden Voice” and was a popular singing star in the late 1930s and 1940s. She was regarded as one of the seven great singing stars. “Golden Voice” was Zhou’s nickname to commend her singing talents after a competition for the most popular singers in Shanghai, where she came in second. Zhou rapidly became the most famous and marketable popular singer in the gramophone era up to her death, singing many famous tunes from her own movies. Her frail but eminently musical voice captured the hearts of millions of Chinese of her time.
