Sam Hui Koon Kit's four show concert series began two nights ago at the Hong Kong Coliseum. Originally his brother Ricky Hui Koon Ying would have been one of the guest performers, but because he passed away last year the brothers could no longer share the stage. Thus a memorial segment was added, as the Hui Brothers and Sam's sons performed a duet with Ah Ying on the screen.
Halfway through the concert, a video of a eagle soaring freely was shown. Big Brother Michael Hui Koon Man appeared and recalled Hui Koon Ying's life. He said, "Everyone feels just like me, after watching Sam for decades this is the first time that we don't see Hui Koon Ying. We will forever miss him! Ah Ying was artistically talented, whatever role he played he resembled, his singing couldn't be better! Everyone miss him very much. He had a little self pity, because he wasn't doing well in school, Parents called him a dumb pig to the point that even he believed it. Ah Ying put his self pity into art so he played mostly bullied characters. The songs that he wrote were sad, even girls he liked the fragile girls. When he joked, he also often made fun of himself. Like he self ridiculed 'Goo goo is very much, but car is very big'! I used to want to hear him tell jokes, tonight I miss him infinitely."
After that, Hui Koon Man performed the English song that Hui Koon Ying performed every time he went on stage, UNCHAINED MELODY. Hui Koon Ying's singing was in the music as well. Hui Koon Man sang half the song but did not continue as he frowned and listened to his brother's singing. Hui Koon Kit appeared and invited his second brother Hui Koon Mo, sons Ryan Hui Wai Yan and Scott Hui Koon Kuk to the stage. They along with Hui Koon Man and on the screen Hui Koon Ying sang with MERCILESS NIGHT COLD WIND. In the video Hui Koon Ying asked the audience to sing out loud, whether they knew the song and the song was good. Some in the audience even succumbed to tears! Later, Hui Koon Kit performed MISSING YOU and English Song HE AIN'T HEAVY, HE'S MY BROTHER in memory of his brother. Sam even broke down. He even said that Hui Koon Ying has never been his burden. After the performance, he lightly said "thank you" and gave a 90 degree bow. then he returned back stage.
With Sam's alma mater Hong Kong University's 100th anniversary, he invited a group of younger students from the school onto the stage and sang his new song for the occasion ENLIGHTEN ME WITH VIRTUE. Sam also showed family photos, including his photo with his twin grandsons Hui Long and Hui Chun. He even said that the younger one looked like him so he spoiled him.
