After the ceremony, Lee spoke of trying to control her tears during the occasion.
“Today, before I was about getting ready to walk out, when the music started, my heart was racing. I was really, really nervous. I almost starting crying uncontrollably. I held back (my tears) because I was afraid I will be a mess before I even walk out. I just want to be happy. Weddings are joyous occasions so I shouldn’t cry.”
Coco Lee, 36, was one of the best-selling female artists of the 1990s as well as becoming the first Asian to perform at the Oscars.
