April 30, London (CNA) Taiwanese singer A-mei performed her first concert at London Monday, fulfilling one of her long-time wishes.

A-mei said she had always wanted to sing in London, but had never had the opportunity.

She sang many of her most popular songs in the concert at the O2 Arena, such as "Holding Hands," "Listen to the Sea" and "My Dearest."

The singer shared with fans her experience of being an artist for 15 years and how during low periods she vowed to persevere and use her natural gift of singing.

Over 10,000 fans attended the concert, some of whom cheered the slogan "Ameizing," while others screamed "A-Mei, I love you!"

One British fan said he first heard A-mei's voice at the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport and had been a faithful fan ever since, having flown to Taiwan twice just to attend her concerts.

A-mei's friendly greeting of "Hello London" helped alleviate homesickness, said Taiwanese fan Joanne, who lives in London.
