After Malaysia’s ex-PM singing to the tune of an oldie, it is now the turn of his wife Rosmah Mansor singing a popular Garth Brooks song.

The Wall Street Journal today picked Rosmah’s rendition of ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’ published in 2010 to accompany its report on the once high-flying first lady of Malaysia.

The Journal’s report entitled ‘Malaysia’s Extravagant Ex-First Lady Lands in Graft Investigators’ Sights”, says Rosmah for years was a lightning rod for anger over suspected corruption.
