Teresa Hui was born in New York, NY on March 29th, 1981. She was raised in Brooklyn, NY and considers herself a New York City girl. Ever since she was little, she had always wanted to perform, putting on performances for restaurant goers at the tender age of 1 1/2 on top of tables at restaurants throughout NYC, to performing Bette Midler songs to her younger sister in her house.

She took piano lessons at age 7, but stopped due to lack of funds. Then she was rejected from the glee club in elementary school because she was sick on the day of callbacks. She was devastated, but she wasn't going to quit right there. So when she was in middle school, she learned guitar and electric bass and was awarded the top instrumental music award.

When Teresa attended Edward R. Murrow High School, she learned at least a dozen various instruments, including oboe, flute, violin, viola and trombone, to name a few. She was a member of the Guitar Ensemble, MIDI Lab group, was principal violist in the Orchestra, was 1st chair trombonist for the Concert & Jazz Bands, and sang in the Women's Chorus and Mixed Chorus. She was also President of the Tri-M Music Honor Society. She also played viola in the All-City Orchestra, and was a member of the Crimson Kings Drum, Fife and Bugle Corps, first as a fife player and eventually earning the title of Horn Captain, playing baritone horn.

Though she excelled at instrumental music, Teresa ached to sing and act on a stage. One day, she saw auditions for SING! at school, so she went in, auditioned, and a star was born! She went on to be known as "Murrow's answer to Ethel Merman" and was a staple of the Murrow Players Circle shows.

In 1998, Teresa prepared a Level 6 classical voice piece (her first EVER classical voice piece!)  for the NYSSMA (New York State School Music Association) auditions. She scored a perfect "100" and won a spot in the 1998 All-State Women's Chorus, as well as becoming the first Murrow student to get accepted into an All-Eastern ensemble, and performed with the 1999 MENC All-Eastern Honors Chorus at Carnegie Hall alongside actress Anne Hathaway.

In the summer of 1999, Teresa was accepted into the Sound of America Honor Band and Chorus, and she sang and danced her way throughout Western Europe, from the Marktplatz in Rothenburg, Germany, to making Magic at Disneyland Paris. Performing with SOA was definitely one of the highlights of her early performing career!

Teresa attended Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ, and graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor of Music degree in Voice Performance, with minors in Musical Theatre and Piano. She was a member of the world-famous Westminster Symphonic Choir, as well as Westminster Singers, performing with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, New York Pops, Cleveland Orchestra and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra to name a few. Some of these performances were broadcast on PBS's "Great Performances," including the 2004 production of Candide, directed by Lonny Price, starring Kristin Chenoweth and Patti Lupone.

Teresa took a hiatus from performing for over 5 years after she graduated from WCC. However, she has made a comeback and has been actively pursuing her career since January of 2010. Teresa is now a proud member of SAG-AFTRA!

Her ultimate goal: BROADWAY!
