From an article in New York Times…”

Known in Chinese as Deng Lijun, Miss Teng’s surname was the same as that of Deng Xiaoping, China’s paramount leader. So she was jokingly known as Little Deng, and in some circles she was nearly as famous as he. Even peasants in the countryside were familiar with her songs and brightly colored costumes.

Many other foreign singers became popular in China, but none captured the hearts of the country as she did. “

From Teresa Teng Foundation site, you can hear her songs.
