Biography

As fans of Vietnamese music videos become more sophisticated and selective in their choices of videos, the producers are going out of their way to ensure that they recruit the finest artists requiring that they not only be able to sing, but also demonstrate showmanship as well.

Nguyen Hung is one of those artists who brought to the music video industry a standard that all artists now have to meet. He is able to combine his talent as a professional dancer and singer to perform and choreograph in many of his appearances in Thuy Nga Entertainment productions.

Born to a family of performers, Nguyễn Từ Hưng is the youngest son of famous Vietnamese dancer/choreographer, Ánh Tuyết. In 1972, at age 17, Nguyen Hung won a gold medal in a dance competition sponsored by Trắng Đen newspaper. He helped his mother give ballroom dancing lessons at her studio until 1975.

Nguyen Hung did not intend to become a singer. In fact, his first love was the drums, and with his skill as a drummer, Nguyen Hung and friends formed a band called The Radiations. The band performed throughout Saigon for two years.

In the years after the fall of Saigon, Nguyen Hung continued his professional involvement with Doc Lap circus troupe, Bong Sen 2 theater group, and several nightclubs in Saigon. During this period, Nguyen Hung was often the backup vocalist for other artists. At the time, he did not have any formal training in music and voice. It was during his stint with Bong Sen 2 that Nguyen Hung was given formal music lessons by Mr. Duy Tan. Hung returned to his strength around 1982 and worked as a dance instructor.
