The new prize is awarded for the first time in this year’s event to honor performers who made outstanding contribution to the Vietnamese music during their lifetimes.
The two singers are notable names of Vietnamese pop stars in the early 90s. They won several times the Lan Song Xanh (Green Wave) Music Award for Favorite Singer given by Radio the Voice of HCM City.
The Lan Song Xanh (Green Wave) Next Step 2018 also offers the first launch of The Jury Board’s prize aiming at encouraging artists and the works of art with the voluntariness in the music sector.
The award ceremony will be held at Hoa Binh Theater in HCMC on January 11.
Launched in 1997 by the Radio Voice of Ho Chi Minh City, the Lan Song Xanh (Green Wave) Music Award is one of the nation’s biggest music contests.
