Nhung, the Vietnamese singer, passed away at 11:57 am on Tuesday, according to the hospital’s statement given to Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper.

Prior to her death, she had been diagnosed with severe complications of COVID-19, including lung consolidation and partial lung necrosis. She also experienced Cytokine storm and multi-organ failure.

In an attempt to save her life, Nhung underwent outside-the-body life support (ECMO) and constant dialysis, along with receiving the most advanced drugs and treatment methods available. Unfortunately, these efforts were unsuccessful.

Previously, Nhung had been admitted to Gia An 115 Hospital on August 15 and was later transferred to Cho Ray Hospital on August 26, where she received treatment for one month and two days.

Born on April 10, 1972, in Gia Lai Province, Nhung was a renowned Vietnamese-American singer known for her exceptional talent in Vietnamese bolero, folk, and country music.

Throughout her two-decade career in the Vietnamese music industry, she was highly active both domestically and internationally.

In addition to her musical achievements, Nhung was also known for her philanthropy, having adopted several orphans and engaging in various charitable activities.

Since the middle of June, when the COVID-19 pandemic intensified in Ho Chi Minh City, Nhung had been involved in numerous charitable efforts. She had originally planned to return to the United States in July to reunite with her daughter but chose to stay in the city to continue her charitable work.
