Fong is from Suzhou in the Jiangsu province of China. She was taught to sing by her father, an accomplished singer of Peking Opera. Fong first performed in her home town at the age of five.

Fong sings Chinese folk, Peking Opera, Chinese Jazz and modern Chinese pop. Her brilliant ability to adapt her voice to many styles from China makes her a unique and special performer. Her performances in festivals, her concerts and recordings surprise and delight. Since 2007, she has enjoyed singing with the Harmony Chinese Music Ensemble specialist exponents of Chinese music In October 2010, at Scotland’s International Storytelling Festival, she made her debut in storytelling in English, using her own adaptions of tales and ancient legends from Chinese tradition.
