29 January 2013 / 3 years 9 months ago

Veteran singer-actress Karen Mok is back onstage, newly married and fresh as ever. When female singers or actresses marry, the public expects them to either reduce their workload or retire from the limelight altogether. Not so for Karen Mok. The 43-year-old singer-actress is back on the scene, a year after she married her first love Johannes at a church near Florence, Italy, reports China Daily."I feel much more energetic after getting married," she says. "Maybe getting married means the emotions I express during my performances won't be the same. That's very interesting, actually."She landed in Beijing recently to promote her first English-language jazz album, Somewhere I Belong, which fulfilled a longtime dream.With a selection of interpretations, such as Chris Isaak's Wicked Game and Sting's Moon Over Bourbon Street and Cole Porter's Love For Sale, Mok also put a touch of Chinese style into the jazz album.
