The singer is well-known for being able to speak and sing in multiple languages including Malay, English, and Mandarin Chinese.
She gained worldwide fame after winning China’s reality TV singing show “Asian Wave”, and successfully broke into the China entertainment market shortly after that.
Now, the 26-year-old singer has set her sights on entering the Korean market with her various covers of Korean hits that have been going viral recently on social media.
Some of her notable covers include GUMMY’s “You Are My Everything”, the original soundtrack of famous Korean drama “Descendants of the Sun”, BIGBANG’s “Last Dance”, and BLACKPINK’s “Whistle”.

Shila had previously mentioned that she has always been a fan of K-pop music and wishes that she can break into the Korean market in the future.
“First, I have to work really hard on my pronunciation. Then maybe I’ll record a video of me singing in Korean and hope that it will go viral. (Breaking into the Korean music industry) is not going to be easy, but I will do my best,” Shila said in a phone interview with The New Paper.
