Hong Kong-based singer and actress Miriam Yeung quickly became one of Cantopop's biggest superstars after rising to fame on television. Yeung made her recording debut in 1996 and proceeded to release new music annually, scoring numerous hits over the years. Her success as a singer led to acting roles, particularly in comedies.
An Evening with Belafonte/Makeba is a Grammy Award-winning 1965 album by Harry Belafonte and Miriam Makeba. It was the second outcome of the long lasting collaboration between Belafonte and Makeba, the first being the appearance of Makeba in the song Just One More Dance on Belafonte's 1960 album, Belafonte Returns to Carnegie Hall.
Despite the title, just two of the tracks in this album are actually duets, while all the others are either sang by Belafonte or Makeba alone.
In the mid 1960s, Belafonte was very active in supporting emerging African artists as well as making African music known worldwide, and this album is an example of this activity. It includes classical African songs like Malaika (with the english title My Angel) as well as songs in African languages such as Zulu, Sotho and Swahili. –Wikipedia
