She was educated at Ginling Girls High School. As a young child, Teng won awards for her singing at talent competitions. Her first major prize was in 1964 when she sang "Visiting Yingtai" from Shaw Brothers' Huangmei opera movie, "The Love Eterne" (梁祝), at an event hosted by Broadcasting Corporation of China. She was soon able to support her family with her singing. Taiwan's rising manufacturing economy in the 1960s made the purchase of records easier for more families. With her father's approval, she quit high school to pursue singing professionally. '''Hsu Hsin-liang''' (

to the earlier drafts was an act of deliberate ambiguity: as the ROC government does not recognize the validity of the Treaty of Shimonoseki, based on Chiang Kai-shek's Denunciation of the treaty in the late 1930s, hence (according to this argument) the sovereignty of Taiwan was never disposed by China. A ratification by the ROC National Assembly is therefore unnecessary. Born to a Kuomintang military family of Hunanese (Hunanese people) origin, Soong began his political career

'''Taiwan Province''' ( ) is one of the two administrative divisions (Administrative divisions of the Republic of China) of the Republic of China (ROC) (Taiwan) that are officially referred to as "provinces". The province covers approximately 69% of the actual-controlled territory of the ROC (Free area of the Republic of China), with around 31% of the total population (Demographics of Taiwan).
Geographically it covers the majority of the island of Taiwan (Geography of Taiwan) as well as almost all of its surrounding islands (List of islands of the Republic of China), the largest of which are the Penghu archipelago, Green Island (Green Island, Taiwan), Xiaoliuqiu Island (Xiaoliuqiu) and Orchid Island. Taiwan Province does not cover territories of the special municipalities (Special municipality of Taiwan) of Kaohsiung, New Taipei, Taichung, Tainan, Taipei, and Taoyuan (Taoyuan City), all of which are located geographically within the main island of Taiwan. It also does not include the counties of Kinmen and Lienchiang (Matsu Islands), which are located alongside the southeast coast of mainland China and administered as a separate Fujian Province (Fujian Province, Republic of China) (not to be confused with the PRC's Fujian Province (Fujian Province)).
Historically Taiwan Province covers the entire island of Taiwan and all its associated islands. All the special municipalities were split off from the province between 1967 and 2014. Since 1997 most of the Taiwan provincial government's functions have been transferred to the central government of the Republic of China following a constitutional amendment. The Taiwan Provincial Government has effectively become a nominal institution under the Executive Yuan's administration. 臺灣省政府功能業務與組織調整暫行條例 in Chinese Taiwan Review-Gone with the Times
The People's Republic of China (China) (PRC) regards itself as the "successor state" of the Republic of China (Republic of China (1912–1949)) (ROC), which the PRC claims no longer legitimately exists, following establishment of the PRC in mainland China. The PRC asserts itself to be the sole legitimate government of China (One China policy), and claims Taiwan as its 23rd province (Taiwan Province, People's Republic of China), even though the PRC itself has never had control of Taiwan or other ROC-held territories. The ROC disputes this position (political status of Taiwan), maintaining that it still legitimately exists and that the PRC has not succeeded it to sovereignty.
