She is the best HK singer ever.

Could not agree with you more. During the 60s, Kong Ling recorded several albums, including a couple with The Fabulous Echoes. Her greatest hit was probably Let's Twist Again. Some of her past recordings under the Diamond Recording label has been included in a Box Album compilation of HK groups, released a couple of years ago.

Does anyone know where she is now? I guess she must be about 70 years old.

Her voice is very therapeutic. I am not afraid to say I have listened all her songs everyday on my way to work for the last 3 years, and I am not about to stop.

My favourite Kong Ling song is "Let's Twist Again, recorded with The Fabulous Echoes.There are two box sets of CDs featuring HK groups and artists from the 60s/70s, released by Universal Music over the last couple of years. It contains quite a few songs by Kong Ling, including "Yum Yum Cha Cha" with the Echoes.
