Evonne Hsu was born in the USA about five hours from Houston Texas in the small rural town of Longview. Named Yvonne Ming Hsu, by her parents, she attracted attention at an early age as one of the few Chinese girls in her town.
Evonne grew up with a love for singing and dancing but had chosen to major in psychology at the University of Texas at Austin when a musical arranger friend convinced her to make a demo tape of her singing
The friend took the tape to Taiwan, where one executive at Core Agency (now the director at Universal Music), was so impressed that he flew to Texas to sign Evonne certain that he has found a future star.
Since she was planning to visit her Grandparents in Taipei anyway, Evonne decided to meet with the executive team at Core to discuss a contract. The meeting must have gone well. With the consent of her parents, she spent a year in Taiwan working on her Mandarin language skills while Core secured a record contract with Universal Music
Universal invested heavily in her debut album “To Be Happy” (Kuai le Wei zhu), recording in the studio for over a month and sending her to Korea to shoot her music video with the same team who had worked with Boa, SES, and Shinhwa
The album was released in January of 2002 and sold an impressive 100,000 copies in it’s first six months. She won the “Best Newcomer Award” from Hong Kong’s TVB.
