The annual Community Chest charity show took place last night at the TVB Television City in Tseung Kwan O. Participating artists included Andy Lau Tak Wa, Leon Lai Ming, Paula Tsui Siu Fung, Joey Yung Cho Yi and others. The star studded line up has been rare in recent charity shows. The show was also the first time two Heavenly Kings Lau Tak Wa and Lai Ming appeared on the same show in Hong Kong. In addition before the program ended it saluted the Community Chest honorary vice president Stanley Ho Hung Sun, who passed away earlier. His past appearances on the program were shown in his memory.
The Community Chest charity show last night had numerous artists, including Lau Tak Wa, Lai Ming, Tsui Siu Fung, Yung Cho Yi, Wayne Lai Yiu Cheung, Bosco Wong Chung Chak, Samantha Ko Hoi Ming, Mat Yeung Ming, Vivian Lai Shui Yan, Hubert Wu Hung Kwan, Shiga Lin and others. The hosts were the "sister class" duo of Liza Wang Ming Chuen and Carol Cheng Yui Ling. The strong line up was rarely seen in recent years. However due to the novel coronavirus, many artists did not make in person appearance and recorded in advance.
After the hosts conducted the lighting ceremony, the Community Chest honorary vice president Leon Lai Ming opened with a call for all Hong Kong to support and contribute to the Community Chest pandemic relief fund. Then he led the performance in a Community Chest theme song. Lai Ming last night also made an in person appearance to support the Community Chest.
Andy Lau Tak Wa then took the baton and called for donation and performed the inspirational song IF ONE DAY with a piano accompaniment. This was the first time two Heavenly Kings appeared on the same Hong Kong program since the pandemic. Joey Yung Cho Yi understood that under the pandemic many families have been affected. She hoped that everyone would be able to face it positively. Thus she and Angela Hui Ching Wan, Tsang Lok Tung and Gladys Li Ching Kwan performed TOMORROW'S GRACE.
In a rare appearance Sister Siu Fung later said that Hong Kong people was born and raised here. Hong Kong experienced a storm and no one expected such a large pandemic, but with everyone helping each other, tomorrow will be full of hope. Then she performed LIFE IS FULL OF HOPE. Sister Siu Fung even helped as a donation receptionist and took a call. She joked, "He donated a lot of money, but I forgot to ask him what his name was!" She even joked, "From now on you don't need the invitation from Sister Siu Fung, I am waiting for everyone to call with their donations!" Sister Siu Fung put on her mask after the donation call. Anita Yuen Wing Yee, Francis Ng Chun Yu also shot videos for donations.
In addition, the fund raising segments also had Michelle Yim (Mai Suet), Nina Paw Hee Ching and Elena Kong Mei Yee in a health and exercise segment, Maria Cordero, Elisa Chan Kit Ling, Chiu Tsang Hei, and Frances Yip Lai Yi in a singing performance and Chin Han and Yvonne Yung Hung in friends under the pandemic segment, all of which were taped in advanced.
