Datalounge icon, New Zealand singer, Wing, announces retirement

Most of you have not been posting long enough to remember this Datalonge phenom. Back in the 90s, she was a popular thread topic. She started out entertaining seniors in various nursing homes throughout New Zealand and gradually built a following eventually to become known internationally. Well, she recently announced her retirement on her website . She will not be recording any more CDs after this year.

Sum Tong Wing!

Aww, sad news. Honestly I'd forgotten about Wing and had no idea she was still around. People made fun of her but her heart was in the right place and she seemed like a sweet lady.

Her rise to popularity was purely occidental.

I've been on DL since it's inception and I've never heard of your pretend DL "phenom".

Step away from the crackpipe.

Well, she was no Wang Dang Doodle!

What, no Broadway run? I was hoping she would play Hello Dolly or Mame. At least appear in a Roundabout production.

At least we can anticipate her life story played by Meryl Streep.
