Singer Yao Beina passed away on Friday, January 16th, 2015 at the Peking University Shenzhen Hospital after a long battle with breast cancer. Last week, she signed to donate her cornea, the only part of her body still donate-able.
Although Yao Beina had gained reputation among the music circle before, and had sung popular theme songs such as those for The Legend of Zhen Huan, she was not well-known to the public until her appearance on The Voice of China 2. She is probably most well-known in the West as the singer of the mandarin pop version of Disney’s “Let it go.”
