Among the many fans who watched Celine Dion's June 2 performance at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas was a musician who enjoys the same level of fame back in her home of China.

Hang Tianqi, a veteran in the Chinese music scene who has released more than 20 full-length albums throughout her career, flew all the way to Las Vegas from Shanghai just to catch the performance.

"There were thousands of audiences of all ages and from different cultures watching the singer performing her biggest hits. Her voice is powerful and she hit every note perfectly. I was really inspired by the performance," said Hang, who is preparing to make a comeback to the music scene after a long absence.

Hang says that she plans to release three new singles and embark on a five-city tour across the country to commemorate her 30-year-long career. The first single I Still Love You, which was released on June 26, features a collaboration between Hang and the China Philharmonic Orchestra.

"I decided to return as a singer because I still love singing," said Hang.

"I am in a very comfortable phase in my life (right now) and when I recorded the song, I noticed that my way of singing has changed. It's very smooth and it's like telling a story."
