Most recently, Bella, whose full name is Dayang Ara Nabellah Awang Astillah, wowed the audience at the Wuhu Shenshan Music Festival 2024 in China.

Her performance was nothing short of electrifying. She sang a Chinese song, connecting with her international audience, and also delivered a stunning rendition of "Sumandak Sabah," originally performed by Velvet Aduk and Marsha Milan.

Bella took to Instagram to share the excitement, posting photos and videos from the festival, each one radiating with her infectious spirit. In her caption, she expressed deep gratitude for the opportunity to represent her beloved Sabah and Malaysia, writing about how proud she felt to bring a piece of home to the international stage.

Her followers and fans responded with an outpouring of support. Comments flooded in, congratulating Bella on her remarkable performance and applauding her strength during a difficult time. "Even though she's going through so much, she's out there shining for Malaysia," one fan wrote. 

Another comment read, "Keep soaring, Bella. You are a light to all of us, even when the world is dark."

Bella's fellow artistes also showed their support, including well-known names like Puteri Sarah Liyana, Nora Danish, Marsha Milan, and Umie Aida. They sent her messages of encouragement and best wishes, cheering her on as she navigated through her personal challenges.

While the domestic conflict with her estranged husband, actor Aliff Aziz, is still ongoing, Bella's spirit remains unbroken. On March 13th, she filed for divorce, following reports of Aliff's alleged infidelity. Despite Aliff's refusal to divorce during court proceedings on April 4th, Bella continues to move forward with courage and grace.

Malaysians are incredibly proud of her, and we all wish her nothing but the best as she navigates through this challenging time. Keep shining, Bella—you are a source of hope and inspiration to many!
