Disney and pop vocalist Coco Lee has passed away at the age of 48.

Pop star in Asia in the ’90s and ’00s, Coco Lee passed away at age 48.

Lee, who was born in Hong Kong but raised in the United States, has both Mandarin and English albums out.

She also sang a song from the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon soundtrack at the 2001 Academy Awards and voiced the film’s lead character in the Mandarin version of Disney’s smash blockbuster Mulan.

According to her sisters, she attempted suicide over the weekend and has been in a coma ever since.

According to a Facebook post made by their older sister Carol and their other older sister Nancy, Lee had been depressed for quite some time.

They reported that she made an at-home suicide attempt on Sunday and was subsequently hospitalized, where she remained until her death on Wednesday.

Lee’s two 1994 Mandarin albums marked his debut on the Mandopop scene. The next year saw the publication of both her third Mandarin album and her first English language album.

Lee’s sisters sent an emotional tribute to their sister, saying, “Not only did she bring us joy with her songs and dances in the past 29 years, but she also worked hard to break new ground for Chinese singers in the international music scene and has been doing her utmost to shine for the Chinese.”

Her rendition of “Reflection,” the Mulan theme song, was featured in the Mandarin dub of the 1999 Hollywood picture “Runaway Bride,” starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere.

She has judged various TV talent contests, including Chinese Idol, and has performed at benefit concerts like the one for Michael Jackson & Friends in South Korea in 1999.

On New Year’s Eve, Lee posted to Instagram about the “major life changing hurdles” she had to overcome and how challenging the year 2022 had been for her.
