Bell Nuntita (Live @ Resort Live Band, 19/07/11)

Remember Bell Nuntita (whose real name is Nuntrita Khampriranon, by the way)? The beautiful Thai transsexual singer who gained her heartwarming fame through the reality show Thailand's Got Talent (she went as far as to the Final, defeated only by a 13-year-old Myra Maneepatsorn Molloy--no, the latter is not a transsexual, mind you!).

Heh. Pity. I don't think I'll be able to watch the lovable Bell Nuntita's performance.

So let's just enjoy the following clips of her wonderful singing:

SHE is the hottest transgender star in Thailand and even has fans in China, Hong Kong, Australia, the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia.

For fans in Singapore, there's good news: Bell Nuntita will be here on July 19 for a one-night performance. In an exclusive interview in Bangkok last month, Bell, 27, told The New Paper on Sunday: "I'm really so excited!

"And I don't think this could have happened if not for the support from my fans in Singapore."

It will be the first overseas trip for Bell, who made it to the final of reality show Thailand's Got Talent about two months ago.

Bell, whose real name is Nuntrita Khampriranon, said in halting English: "You know, it's all so surreal. When you first told me that I had fans in Singapore, I could hardly believe it.

"Now, I do."

The New Paper on Sunday reported in May that Bell was elated to learn that she had fans here.

Mr Steven Ng, the operations director of Thai-themed club Resort Live Band, told The New Paper on Sunday that it asked Bell to perform here because of her fast-rising popularity, not only in Bangkok but also in Singapore.

He added:"We showcase a popular act, usually from Thailand, every three months. And there's no doubt that Bell's the hottest star in Bangkok right now."

The club has been inundated with phone calls from fans asking about details of Bell's show since the news broke on the singer's Facebook fan pages.

The club had requests to allow younger fans in, said Mr Ng.

"But there's nothing we can do as these are the club's rules."

That she has risen so quickly to be a regional celebrity is no mean feat, considering that she lost to a 13-year-old opera singer, Myra Maneepatsorn Molloy, in Thailand's Got Talent.

Bell said: "I accept the final result. I'm more grateful for what I have gained rather than feel sorry that I lost." The outcome of the talent show was fiercely debated on the Internet.

Netizens cried foul, alleging that Myra's wealthy father had spent about one million baht (S$40,500) to phone in votes for his half-Thai, half-American daughter. The girl walked away with nearly 10 million baht worth of prizes, including cash, a condominium unit and a car.

But Bell refused to discuss the controversy or dwell on her loss. She said: "Frankly, I feel I've won. Big time...

From Asiaone, "Thai transsexual singer due to perform in S'pore".
