The 37-year-old, who performed headlining gigs here last October and in November 2007, is the latest addition to the line-up of three-day music extravaganza F1 Rocks Singapore With LG.
She will join Hong Kong pop legend Jacky Cheung and fellow Taiwanese outfits sodagreen and Da Mouth on the first day of the event.

Ms Becky Morgan, chief operating officer of Britishbased events company All The Worlds, the shows' organiser, said that A*mei's addition to the show would result in a one-of-a-kind experience for concert-goers.
"It will be the first time she and Heavenly King Jacky Cheung will be sharing a stage, performing full, live sets," she added.
Known for hits such as Sisters (1996), Bad Boy (1997) and Holding Hands (1998), A*mei has released a total of 17 albums, selling over eight million copies worldwide since she rose to fame in 1996.
Singaporean fans like accounts executive Winnie Lee, 27, are looking forward to seeing the diva in action.
She said: "I'm so excited to see her because I missed her previous shows. Plus there will be other acts to watch. I can't wait."
