Yumiko's Cheng's version of the Israeli song "The heat of Tel Aviv" by Sarit Hadad
Yumiko Cheng's Mandarin song "Five Centuries" is being aired in Israel. The song was originally an Israeli song and very popular there. The reporter asked her why her song was being aired in Israel? She said "Because a local reporter heard my Mandarin version and was very surprised, he liked it very much. He also asked me and my producer James Ting to do an interview for him. Even aired my MV on the local television station."
Yumiko stated that she was surprised to be able to successfully enter the Israeli market. "I am very happy, very surprised. Now many Israelis listen to my song. I will continue to explore other types of songs. (Have you been to Israel?) "No, I haven't been there yet but my songs have arrived there first haha." (Do you want to visit there?) "Of course I do, We have different cultures and I would like to learn more about it."
