Biography

Labuan Island, East Malaysia (2007 – present)

Karen Kong (龔柯允) is a popular 22 year-old female singer from Labuan Island, East Malaysia. Her primary audience consist of fans from the South-East Asia region (Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Philippines and Indonesia).
Karen Kong (or Karen K to her fans) is a Malaysian singer of Chinese ethnicity. Karen’s debut single was launched in January 2007. She immediately garnered attention due to her entire album being written in Malay, which is quite unusual for a Chinese artist.

    Karen Kong's voice, style, expression, and especially technique is so rare in this era. She doesn't run out of breath, never goes off-key, and definitely doesn't sound throaty. Karen's voice is so clear, crisp, natural, easy on the ears, strong.
