In Vietnam, the term “diva” holds a lot of respect, given to female artists who’ve made a lasting impact on today’s music scene. Among these stars are Thanh Lam, Hong Nhung, Ha Tran, and the acclaimed Mỹ Linh, whose amazing voice has captivated millions of fans.

In 2023, Mỹ Linh drew closer to the audience by participating in the TV show Sisters Who Make Waves. This show allowed her to showcase not only her vocal prowess but also her warmth and approachability, endearing her to fans old and new alike.

Beyond her image as a diva, viewers witnessed a more relatable side of Mỹ Linh, embracing life with warmth and an insatiable thirst for learning. Surprisingly, she also displayed a knack for creating memes, adding a playful dimension to her public persona and resonating with younger fans.

During her appearance on this Have A Sip episode, Mỹ Linh playfully shared anecdotes about her love life with musician Anh Quân, effortlessly charming both the host and the audience. She also showered the younger audience with words of encouragement, offering virtual hugs as solace and support to the youth.

‘Short Hair, Eyes as Gentle as Doves’

Let’s journey back to 1998, when “Short Hair” was born, marking the emergence of Mỹ Linh’s iconic hairstyle and name. Her influence was such that parents began naming their daughters after her, and salons saw a surge in requests for the “Mỹ Linh cut.” These enduring traits have become synonymous with the singer, standing the test of time.

Known for her gentleness and warmth, Mỹ Linh communicates her emotions through subtle gestures—a touch, a gaze, or a lingering embrace. In every performance, Mỹ Linh descends to handshakes or interacts with the audience, adding emotion and depth to her lively performances.

Her fondness for hugs, cultivated since childhood, persists despite skepticism from some quarters. She believes in the power of love to transcend words, a sentiment from the hugs she shares with everyone.

‘Love Abounds for Those Who Wait’

Mỹ Linh extends her empathy towards the younger generation, understanding their vulnerability in the face of relentless scrutiny, largely fueled by social media.

Amidst the cacophony of voices, she acknowledges that stumbling on life’s unpredictable path is inevitable. Yet, she remains an unwavering beacon of optimism, “That’s what the path to maturity is like, but I trust you will persevere!”

Mỹ Linh warns against comparing one’s success to others, highlighting the uniqueness of each person’s path. Success takes many forms, but the influence of social media often distorts our perception, encouraging us to use others’ achievements as standards for our lives.

“Someone special will undoubtedly recognize our worth and efforts,” she assures, “and perhaps, there's someone eagerly waiting to be appreciated and cherished by you in return.”

These words offer hope for genuine recognition and love along our journeys.

Authenticity is Mỹ Linh’s cornerstone to ensuring her music resonates with audiences. She explains that infusing sincerity and dedication into one’s work clarifies the potential longevity and impact of one’s creations.

She also cautions against prioritizing style over substance, emphasizing that without a genuine foundation, the fruits of labor are fated to wither with time.

‘A Dedication to You, My Beloved, Words of Endearment in Life’

Throughout the conversation, Mỹ Linh expresses deep admiration for her husband, musician Anh Quân.

Beyond the roles of husband and father, Anh Quan has been the unwavering force behind Mỹ Linh’s musical journey, providing support from its inception, including music production, album releases, and concert tours. Mỹ Linh openly affirms she wouldn't have been able to achieve her success without his sacrifices and assistance.

When asked, “If one day you had to go to a deserted island, not knowing when you would return, who would you want to take with you?” She doesn't hesitate to reveal her choice: her partner, Anh Quan.

Without him at the helm, she quips that she’d be adrift at sea: “I even asked him if he’d like to join me on a deserted island, but he simply remained silent. To this day, his response remains a mystery. Who knows what's going on in his mind?” (laughs).
