I’m not very familiar with a lot of older Thai singers, singers from the 1980s and 1990s before I moved to Thailand, but I was recently introduced to a couple of older Thai songs from singer Patchara Wangwan, (พัชรา แวงวรรณ) that I liked. So, I was very sad to hear the news just a few minutes ago that Patchara Wangwan had been killed in a car accident in California.
The Thai singer had been living in the United States for about a decade, since she stopped singing with her band Ovation. According to the Bangkok Post, Patchara was killed in a car accident in LA while driving from Riverside on Wednesday. She was only 48 years old. Very sad news indeed.
If you’d like to listen to what a beautiful voice Patchara Wangwan had, listen to these two songs. So pretty. It’s no wonder she used to be such a popular singer in Thailand. She will be missed.
