Coco Lee

Ferren Lee (李美林 Pinyin: Lǐ Měilín) (born February 17, 1975), better known by stage name Coco Lee (李玟 Lǐ Wén), is an Asian popstar. Born in Hong Kong with ancestry in Harbin, China, Lee moved to California at 10, until returning to Asia in 1993 to start a singing career. She sang the theme song "A Love Before Time" for the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. She received worldwide exposure when she performed the song live at the 2001 Academy Awards ceremony.

In addition to her mega-star status in the Mandarin and Cantopop music market, her English performance also received recognition. Her song "Before I Fall In Love" was included in soundtrack of the movie Run Away Bride. She was invited by Andrew Lloyd Weber to perform Phantom of the Opera in China.

House of fashion Chanel named CoCo its first "Asian-Pacific Celebrity Ambassadress". Disney hired her to sing the songs in the Chinese version of Mulan.

Some say her voice is comparable with Mariah Carey.
