The Hanoi model has already sparked excitement among musical fans when a demo version of her debut single “Model (Take My Picture)” was released recently on the internet.
Within 24 hours after it appeared the single had more than 13,000 visits and comments and 26,000 search results although its full version will not be released until the end of this month.
Ha Anh announced her plan to expand her career to music 2 years ago when she first came back to Vietnam from the UK, where she got her Bachelor’s Degree in Business at the University of Reading and later worked as a professional model for 9 years.
However it is not until this year that Ha Anh was involved in a series of musical activities, such as joining the Vietnam version of the British reality music show “Just the two of us” where she was highly praised for her performances with singer Ho Trung Dung.
Ha Anh’s debut single was written by songwriter Antoneus Maximus, who authored the original soundtracks of recent Vietnamese blockbuster movies such as Long Ruoi and De Mai Tinh.
He is also known for his collaborations with world-renowned band Black Eyed Peas.
The official music video and DVD version of “Model (Take My Picture)” will be released and distributed nationwide on November 28 with the sponsorship of fashion magazine Haper's Bazaar Vietnam.
Besides being known for sexy lingerie and underwear photo shoots in Vietnam, Ha Anh is also known as an MC as well as the host and judge for the first Vietnam’s Next Top Model in 2010.
She was also appointed as the Goodwill Ambassador of UNICEF Vietnam the same year.
Ha Anh is not the first model to pursue a professional singing career, but only Ho Ngoc Ha, also a former top model, has been able to make a successful career switch so far.
