    She sang Eyes On Me for Final Fantasy VIII didn't she? She does have a nice voice.

    She does have a nice voice. :)

    I've got a question, though -- I know just enough Chinese to know that the pitch of a syllable can change its meaning: mā means "mother", but mǎ means "horse", for example.

    How do Chinese singers deal with the syllable's tone and the melody of the song at the same time, since both dictate a pitch?

    Indeed, you are correct - it is not easy writing Chinese lyrics to a song. Push comes to shove, the syllable's tone may be varied a little to fit into the note of the song, but it cannot go too far off - otherwise, the lyric would mean something else and/or become gibberish.
