On April 12, 2019, coach Liu Huan sung a medley of three songs dedicated to Yao, on the finals of the seventh season of Singer; his performance was received praise from the panel of audience, and eventually won the competition with over 60% of the votes cast.


Her posthumous single, “Glory” (风光), was released on 16 January 2016 (the one-year anniversary of her death), peaking at No.2 on the QQ Music New Single Chart.


In December 2014, Yao had a recurrence of the cancer and her situation was reported to have worsened on 15 January 2015. She died a day later in Shenzhen, Guangdong, aged 33. According to her wish, her corneas were donated to two recipients in Shenzhen and Chengdu.

Her ashes were interred on 4 September in the Shimenfeng Memorial Park of her place of birth, the city of Wuhan, China, prior to the release of her second posthumous album “Born Proud” (天生骄傲), which was still under production at the time of her death. It was released on what would have been her 34th birthday (26 September 2015) and the celebration of her homecoming. The album was listed as one of the best selling albums in the year list of Jingdong Mall.

On April 9, 2015, according to the news released by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the asteroid “41981” was named after Yao Beina. The asteroid was discovered by William Kwong Yu Yeung in 2000, an amateur astronomer from Hong Kong. The International Astronomical Union (IAU) named the asteroid “Yaobeina”, which was suggested by Yeung in memory of the singer. NASA describes Yao Beina in its website as “Yaobeina (1981–2015) was a talented and courageous Chinese singer who won numerous awards for the best Chinese pop song performance. One of Yao’s songs, “Fire of the Heart”, was about the reflections on her battle with breast cancer.


In addition to cancer awareness activities, Yao also attended an awareness-raising event for the care of children as the “Ambassador of Love” in 2014. Regretting not having any child of her own, possibly because of the cancer, she once commented during an interview: “When you saw all of your friends have children who are old enough to run errands, and post their pictures on the Internet, this was the only time you would feel just a little stimulated.”

Her decision came at the end of 2014 to donate her body in case of death. It turned out that before her death in 2015, the metastasis left only her corneas intact and suitable for donation. So far her corneas have helped four patients to recover their visions. Shortly after her death, the number of Chinese people who voluntarily signed organ donation agreement had doubled within a month. This coincides with the government announcement that from the first day of 2015, organ harvesting from executed prisoners was banned in China. The unexpected coincidence was mentioned by the Minister of Health, Huang Jiefu, during an TV interview and he said: “Maybe we can still hear her singing in Heaven…”


Yao returned to CCTV Young Singer TV Competition as the youngest judge of this music show in 2013. In the same year, she released her new album Half of Me (Chinese: 二分之一的我 ). All of songs in this album topped Baidu Music Chart, making her the No.1 Mandopop Female Singer on Baidu Music. According to the sales and reputation of the album, Yao attained the title “the best female vocalist” on MusicRadio China TOP Charts Awards. She was the first pop solo vocalist performing the finale of CCTV New Year’s Gala.

In September 2013, Yao was invited to become the image ambassador for China Pink Ribbon Campaign, which aims to raise awareness of breast cancer. As a breast cancer survivor, she was considered the most suitable candidate for the post.

As is traditional with this campaign, Yao needed to make a topless poster to remind women to take care of their body and raise the public’s awareness of women’s breast health. The visceral impact of seeing a woman with an amputated breast, especially in an age saturated in images of commodified female flesh, has proven to be a successful, yet shocking method of raising awareness, among both men and women. Growing up in a relatively conservative society, Yao initially felt nervous, but later relaxed after thinking about “bringing victims courage by doing so.” In the autumn of 2013, Yao’s posters were posted across the country. Through these posters, Yao wanted to send the message “You can win in the battle against breast cancer.”


In December of that year, Yao released the song “Fire of the Heart” (心火), which describes her struggle and pain when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 at the age of 30. “If you never cry in the middle of the night, you will never be qualified to talk about fate… don’t ask me why, because I have fought the devil several times,” she wrote in the lyrics.


In 2009, she left the Troupe and signed with a label called “乐巢音尚” (Yuècháo Yīnshàng). After giving her first concert in Shenzhen in 2010, she released her first album named after herself, Yao Beina (姚贝娜). The songs, mainly composed by herself, received widespread praise. She impressed Liu Huan and got the opportunity to sing the theme song of the TV series Empresses in the Palace. Yao became well known to the public after she made a series of songs for the hit drama Empresses in the Palace, in 2012. In the same year, Yao was invited by the director Feng Xiaogang to sing the theme song “The River of The Life” (生命的河) of the film Back to 1942. She sang “Love in the Painting” (画情) for Painted Skin: The Resurrection, the highest grossing domestic film in China. As of 2012, she has made songs for 60 TV dramas and films, and performed twice in CCTV New Year’s Galas in 2007 and 2010.

According to later documented interviews with her, she was coping with a long term depression at the moment of the earthquake and she had constant thoughts of death. Due to the depression, she finally left the Troupe after requesting resignation for the third time in 2009.


She rose to prominence after winning the Chinese Young Singer TV competition Championship in 2008 with the first full mark in history. She performed on the stage of Beijing Olympic Games Closing Ceremony.

As an enlisted member of the Naval Political Department of the Song and Dance Troupe of the People’s Liberation Army in 2008, Yao was ordered to help relieve the earthquake zones in Sichuan province, where more than 80,000 people lost their lives. She and her colleagues traveled to the disaster zones and performed for the survivors as well as the PLA soldiers working in the area. She personally donated 30,000 RMB (US$5,000) while her annual salary as an enlisted member was estimated to be less than 15,000 RMB (US$2,500).


Yao worked for four years in the Naval Political Department of the Song and Dance Troupe of the People’s Liberation Army, after graduating from the acclaimed China Conservatory of Music in 2005. During her servicing in the Troupe, she won the champion in Chinese Young Singer Championship (全国青年歌手电视大奖赛).


In 2000, she was admitted to China Conservatory of Music with Dong Hua, a master of the Chinese folks music, as her mentor. According to Dong Hua, the most impressive quality of Yao during the admission exam was “her precise notion of the key”. “She was quick in understanding, and I decided right away that I wanted to teach her everything I’ve got.”
