Biography

Phi Nhung’s Cinderella’s career is truly a tale of will and perseverance overcoming life’s many obstacles and hardships. Growing up in Pleiku, Vietnam and being an Amerasian and a child of a single parent, Phi Nhung has had to endure much ridicules and humiliations in her childhood.

While many of her contemporaries enjoyed carefree teenage years, Phi Nhung had to be independent very early in her life. She lost her mother when she was eleven and had to quit school after her 6th grade to work as a seamstress to support her five siblings while living with her maternal grandparents.

In October 1989, Phi Nhung came to the United States through the Amerasian Resettlement Program and lived with her aunt in Tampa Florida. Being a very independent person, she soon moved out to live on her own, working as a seamstress and a waitress in a local restaurant.

Phi Nhung never let these obstacles impede her dream to become a singer. While she had no role model in the field while she was growing up, Phi Nhung shared that she has had to learn at a very early age, the many lullabies and folk songs to sing her younger sisters and brothers to sleep. Consequently, she built quite a repertoire of songs in this genre and at the same time, she was able to hone her singing skills.

Phi Nhung met Trizzie Phuong Trinh while she was on a tour in Florida and the singer quickly discovered the budding talents in Phi Nhung as well as her hard work ethics and potential. Trizzie adopted Phi Nhung as her sister and convinced her to go to California to try her hands at singing. Although this was her dream, Phi Nhung lacked the confidence to make such a bold move, so she really didn’t make the decision until much later.
