English Crossover Singer Mary-Jess to Perform at Tainan’s Christmas and New Year’s Eve Festivities. Mayor Invites All to the Concerts

Audiences in Tainan City will be treated to the largest number of concerts and performing artists available in Taiwan this Christmas and New Year’s Eve holiday as the city government has decided to expand the festivities this year. In addition to having nearly all popular singers in Taiwan on its local stages, Tainan City will also bring in artists from overseas: English singer Mary-Jess will participate in Tainan City's Christmas and New Year's Eve festivities this year. Praised as the “Super Mary” of the music circle by the British media, the crossover artist will bring her unique style and performance to the local stages. Tainan City Mayor Huang Wei-che invites all to come enjoy the performances in Tainan.


The Mayor expressed that although international travel has been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, making it very difficult for foreign artists to come to Taiwan, Tainan City still managed to invite Mary-Jess to Tainan. Hopefully her warm and beautiful voice can offer some comfort to the audience and boost the citizens’ strength and courage to move on forward.


Huang also mentioned that Mary-Jess is the singer of “Did I make the most of loving you”, the theme song of television series Downton Abbey. Viewers who enjoy foreign tv shows may have already heard her classical voice before. This time in Tainan, Mary-Jess will present a couple of classical-pop crossover performances as well as songs in Chinese. Come enjoy her angelic voice at the Christmas Lights Lighting ceremony and concert at Xinying Cultural Center plaza (12/12), and the Jazz concert on 12/18.


Mayor Huang also reminded the public to heed the Fall-Winter COVID-19 Prevention Program measures announced by the central government. Audiences are required to fill in the online personal contact information form prior to the event, and wear masks during the performances to protect themselves and others. The organizer recruited local business KNH Enterprise Co., who is also a member of the national epidemic prevention team, to produce limited quantities of masks with the event’s visual design printed on it. You can get them for free at the event customer service desk while supplies last.
