Biography

Thanh Tuyền (real name: Nguyen Nhu Mai) is a singer. She was born on October 29, 1949 in Dalat. Her family moved to Saigon where she attended Bui Thi Xuan and Le Van Duyet high school. Thanh Tuyền’s famous sibling is Son Tuyền. She is also Shayla’s mom. In 1979, Thanh Tuyền’s family came to the United States and settled in Washington and then Houston, Texas.

As a child, Thanh Tuyền demonstrated a nack for singing and performance. At the age of five, against the wishes of her parents, she studied music with an uncle. Consequently, she was often disciplined for being so defiant. She later studied music under Mr. Manh Phat. She first sang publicly at Thong Nhat Theater in Saigon at the age of 7. She received many praises for this performance and the newspapers at the time gave her the title, “Nhu Mai The Prodigy”. In her words, “I only wanted to have a voice like the sound of a stream to bathe the masses”. Thanh Tuyền also plays the guitar, dances, acts, and sings Vo.ng Co^?.

In 1964, after signing an exclusive contract with Continental studio, she recorded the hit Chiều Mưa Biên Giới by Mr. Nguyen Van Dong. Almost overnight, Thanh Tuyền became a household name. That same year, she received recording awards from South Vietnam’s recording industry.
