Hi. For your information, because Chinese has tonal related speech, there are a good many more Chinese people with perfect or absolute pitch than there are Americans, for instance.
Singing on pitch in trained singers is partly a function of support. If they push they go sharp.

Could become the case after singing roles that are too heavy. Could also be a fluke on a pitch on an off day, but consistently off pitch speaks to a more general situation. It is a function of technique.
