Tiny Yong

Tiny Yong debuted in asian cabaret-restaurant “La table du mandarin” in 1959 (after making her debut in the theatre, then the cinema and then as a singer) with an exotic setlist from 1960 till 1962, before supporting the cause of yé-yé thanks to Henri Salvador. Her choice of songs is greatly influenced by American girl-groups, from The Shirelles to the Chiffons. From 1963 till 1965 she was one of the favorites of the show “Salut les copains’. In 1963 she even achieved a 5th place in the show’s chart behind Sylvie Vartan, Sheila, Françoise Hardy and Petula Clark. Magic Records released an anthology in 1998.
