Have you ever had the opportunity to listen to Vancouver’s own Kristie Yung? Kristie Yung is an acoustic-soul, singer/songwriter. Offering a unique ‘Ella Fitzgerald meets Taylor Swift’ sound, Kristie has charmed audiences across Canada and Internationally. “Growing up, I just knew that singing was the right path for me. Music has an incredible power to unite people and places. I wanted so much to just be a part of that” says Kristie. Her influences include Justin Nozuka, Adele, Ebrahim, John Mayer, Kina Grannis and Ella Fitzgerald.

Recently, Kristie co-wrote and co-produced the title song “Keh Dena” for Mangoes, the television series (2011). The song is originally a song by Pakistani pop legend, Alamgir and was released in the 1980’s. Kristie was asked to re-vamp the song and pay tribute to it;  for Kristie it meant paying respect to Alamgir’s contribution to music as he was the first to introduce Pop music to Pakistan.   5 days into the release of the music video it got 100K hits and 50K shares. If that’s not impressive enough Keh Dena was also #1 in Canada under Film/Animation last week on YouTube and #2 most favourited under Film/Animation last week in Canada.
