Before going to Singapore to participate in the Asia Arts Festival, Bella Vu had a serious training program for a few months.

After arriving in the city-state, Bella Vu suffered from a high-temperature fever and a sore throat that nearly made her lose her voice but she still trained before the competition date.

On Tuesday, Bella Vu finished her submission in levels 4-6 in the piano category and was awarded a silver medal in piano solo.  

On Wednesday, she took home a gold medal after performing the song Bella Ciao in Italian with piano support from pianist Nguyen Long An, who is also her teacher.

Bella Vu has attended the Asia Arts Festival for several times before and secured a silver medal in solo piano in 2015 and a silver medal in piano duet in 2016.
