Chhet Sovan Panha is one of the fastest rising recording stars in Cambodia music history. She is the only singer to reach the top rankings in Cambodia's competitive music industry with almost zero self-promotion. With no rumors and no gossips, Chhet Sovan Panha continues to be one of the most-respected female singer in Cambodia.

Early life

Chhet Sovan Panha was born in 1986 to an adequate family. Her father is a sculptor who is able to earn enough money for a fair standard of living. She is a college graduate. She loves to sing since she was at an early age and has performed on many broadways for kids.

The Beginning

At the age of 19, she became a singer for Rasmey Hang Meas Production (2005) after she auditioned for a music show on Cambodian CTN Television. The producers of Rasmey Hang Meas were immediately drawn to her soulful and rockish voice. She signed a singing contract with Rasmey Hang Meas Production for 5 years. She is the youngest to sing for Rasmey Hang Meas Production.

Music

Chhet Sovan Panha has released many chart-topping albums one after another. Her first song "Mouse Loves Rice" shot straight to the top and made her a Pop Princess. Her debut album "Passion (2005)" sold an amazing 1.4 million copies domestically and became the biggest selling debut album by a female artist ever in Cambodia music history. In light of the success of "Passion (2005)", Panha continued to work on more different styles of music, including popular folk dance, New Year Rhythm, and of course modern pop music. One of the biggest female albums of 2006 in Cambodian Pop culture is her album, "Romance Of The Wind (2006)", which spawned four #1 songs and has sold almost 1.5 million copies to date. She has worked with many top producers and songwriters, and has also written her own music as well. Her most notable album to date is "Guitarist In Tears (2007)", which has sold almost 2 million copies domestically. She is the only artist to have a video clip for every song she records. She is a favorite among teenagers, as well as the older generations.

Best of the Best: Live Concert

Best of the Best: Live Concert is a concert performed at the Cambodian National Stadium by all the present Cambodian singers from RHM. This occurs annually and is known to have started since 2004. Chhet Sovan Panha is one of the main performers in this concert. It is not rare to see fans climb onto the stage and give her gifts, flowers, or ask for an autograph or picture.

Today

Currently, Rasmey Hang Meas Production is teaching her how to act as well. She will most likely star in her first feature film very soon in the near future.

In late 2007, there has been rumors circulating that Chhet Sovan Panha is not happy with RHM and is thinking of leaving.
