Life and careerEdit

1993–1998: Early careerEdit

Quang Vinh was born on May 18th, 1982 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Although coming from a family with no particular creative background, he had shown a great deal of potential in his vocal and musical capabilities. Towards the end of the artist’s primary school years, Quang Vinh was submitted by his parents to participate in the city’s well-known children’s performing arts centre, "Đội Sơn Ca Nhà Thiếu Nhi Quận 1", along with singer Hiền Thục, and Phạm Thanh Lan (a member of Mặt Trời Đỏ, and former member of the famed harmonizing group, Cadillac). Since then, he and his other kids of his age began to appear regularly in musical performances such as competitions or festivals, which were also broadcast on the radio and national television.

Quang Vinh's commitment to the music scene as a child had earned him a position as one of his generation's greatest young voices with songs like "Mẹ Hiền Yêu Dấu", "Cho Con", "Thằng Bờm", "Tây Du Ký", "Trăng Tròn", "Tuổi của Trăng", "Heal the World", "Con Voi", "Cô Giáo Mới", "Cánh Én Tuổi Thơ", and "Ước Mơ Hồng". Since then, he was given a special nickname by children across the country, "Hoàng Tử Sơn Ca", or ‘Prince Nightingale’.

In 1998, he was sent to Monsignor Bonner High School in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania, an all-male Augustinian Catholic high school. With an impending graduation, Quang Vinh decided to move back to Vietnam in 2000, in order to pursue his passion to become a singer. He then signed a contract with Kim Lợi Studio, and proceeded to release his dream debut album, "Những Ngày Xưa Yêu Dấu" in 2001.

2000–2016: Professional singing careerEdit

During his time with Kim Lợi Studio, Quang Vinh had released 3 albums: "Những Ngày Xưa Yêu Dấu", "Nói Với Em… Phai Dấu Cuộc Tình", and "Dòng Sông Mùa Đông… Lãng Quên Cuộc Tình".

In the beginning of 2003, his contract with Kim Lợi Studio had expired. With this opportunity, Quang Vinh decided to change his musical direction and build a new image for himself through preparations to release his fourth album.

The music video for "Tình Yêu Tìm Thấy" was consisted of 2 versions: CD & VCD. Directed by Phan Điền, the video was filmed in Hanoi at multiple well-known locations such as the Memorial of Literature, Thê Húc Bridge, Tạ Hiện Street, Long Biên Bridge, St. Joseph’s Cathedral of Hanoi, One Pillar Pagoda, and West Lake.

Carrying a collection of Quang Vinh's core hits, the album "Tình Yêu Tìm Thấy" brought him several prizes following its release: Làn Sóng Xanh's Upcoming Artist in 2003, Ngôi Sao Bạch Kim 2003, and VTV's Bài Hát Tôi Yêu 2003.

Shortly after, the artist had also completed his first live concert in the country’s capital, Hanoi, with intentions to promote his fourth album, representing a new chapter in his musical career. Over 10,000 people attended. Following this great success, another concert took place in celebration of the very beginning of Quang Vinh’s career as a musician, "Hoàng Tử Sơn Ca - Vào Đời", or "the Birth of Prince Nightingale", at Lan Anh Sports Club in Ho Chi Minh City.

After this, Quang Vinh had also released several albums that had great impact throughout his career: Miền Cát Trắng, Đánh Rơi Tình Yêu, Ngày Không Vội Vã, the collection: Xuân (Lời Tình Xuân), Hạ (Ve Kêu), Thu (Chuyện Ngày Hôm Qua), Đông (Anh Ru Em Ngủ), and others.

The year 2007 was when the artist collaborated with Bảo Thy to release the album, "Ngôi Nhà Hoa Hồng", which sold over 100,000 copies in a short time. The collaborative effort had produced many great hits, such as: "Ngôi Nhà Hoa Hồng", "Dịu Dàng Đến Từng Phút Giây", and "Vẫn Tin Mình Có Nhau". The pair went on to become one of the most loved duet partnerships in the music industry.

The following year, Quang Vinh released the album "Day & Night", which earned him two prestigious prizes: " Golden Album" award and "Fan's Favorite Album" award.

The album received tremendous recognition and songs like "Phai Dấu Cuộc Tình" gained over 43 million views on Quang Vinh's official YouTube channel.

The year 2020 marked the first collaboration between Quang Vinh and the "King of Ballad", Mr. Siro, when the two came together to release a new music video for "Lạnh Từ Trong Tim".
