Dato Siti Nurhaliza is one of Malaysia's finest singing exports. With her velvety vocals, the songstress has charmed the international press, who dubbed her the Voice of Asia and the region's equivalent to Céline Dion. Having started off singing at weddings at the age of five, Nurhaliza went on to win the Juara Bintang competition in 1995 aged 16. That victory catapulted her to stardom, followed by a succession of singles like "Cindai" and "Bukan Cinta Biasa". With precise locution and graceful phrasing, she's elevated the Malay song to an art form.
