An exhibition has opened in Taipei celebrating the life of Taiwanese singing and acting legend Wen Hsia. Wen starred in 11 films throughout his career and recorded more than 1,200 Taiwanese songs before his death at 94 years of age in April this year. The exhibition will be in Taipei only for a short time, before relocating to a permanent exhibition hall in his hometown of Madou in Tainan. Together they inaugurate the exhibition. On stage are relatives of Wen Hsia, the members of The Chairman, record producer Kay Huang and other close friends of the late singer. Wen Hsiang Wife of Wen Hsia I see that many people and friends have come here to show their support. Thank you very much. Culture Minister Lee Yung-te and Wen Hsia’s wife sit in a red vintage car. Back in the day, it was a promotional car advertising the film “One Night in Taipei,” for which Wen sang the theme song. The car is a chronicle of Wen’s glamorous life since his birth in 1928 to his death earlier this year. At the venue, there is also a gigantic photo album, so that fans can remember Wen’s career through both black-and-white and colored photos. Wen starred in a total of 11 Taiwanese-language movies through his life, and recorded about 1,200 songs in Taiwanese. At the 23rd Golden Melody Awards in 2012, he was honored with a Special Contributions Award.
