The Lawrence Cheng Tan Shui host, producer Siu Chiu Shun managed HEALTH TAN since Sam Hui Koon Kit's online concert in April last year and Aaron Kwok Fu Sing's in May last year raised fund for colleagues under the pandemic and cheered for everyone in Hong Kong. A year has passed, but everyone still had to co-exist with the pandemic and continue the fight. HiEggo on April 1st, the anniversary of "Gor Gor" Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing's passing, would hold a IN LOVING MEMORY OF LESLIE CHEUNG online concert. Through Gor Gor's singing the event would cheer for Chinese around the world and spread positive energy.
Gor Gor passed away 18 years ago, but everyone missed him no less. HiEggo chose to again hold another online concert on April 1st, the anniversary of Gor Gor's passing. Conceivably if Gor Gor was alive he would agree with this decision, and through Gor Gor's former manager Chan Suk Fun the concert received Gor Gor's beloved Daffy Tong Hok Tak's permission. Siu Chiu Shun revealed that the concert title IN LOVING MEMORY OF LESLIE CHEUNG also came from the mind of Tong Tong. That day a hour long performance would take place on the outdoors lawn on the Ocean Terminal Deck with the Victoria Harbor scenery as its background. Gor Gor's industry friends would be guests and perform Gor Gor's classic hits.
The HiEggo program interviewed Gor Gor's former manager Chan Suk Fun. She said, "Gor Gor was someone who was overflowing with self confidence. He was very positive, when you came in contact with him normally, he wouldn't ask you whether something he was wearing was good or not. He would only say, 'hot or not', 'cool or not'. He wouldn't give you the chance to criticize him. He was fully prepared with everything. As soon as he came out he was full of confidence. You had to recognize him."
Mrs. Chan also pointed out, "Gor Gor was the friendliest superstar I met, whatever he did he would put others first. He would never think of himself first. Thus today everyone miss him so much. He really put his heart into treating everyone, really wanted to keep his truth, kindness and beauty going and let everyone experience this spirit of his." Mrs. Chan felt that she had to respect Tong Tong, so she played the messenger. Tong Tong agreed very quickly. According to Mrs. Chan, Tong Tong said, "If today Cheung Kwok Wing was here, if the Hong Kong people wanted him to cheer for them, I believe he would stand up right away without any hesitation."
The Lawrence Cheng Tan Shui host, producer Siu Chiu Shun managed HEALTH TAN planned to hold the IN LOVING MEMORY OF LESLIE CHEUNG online concert on April 1st -- the anniversary "Gor Gor" Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing's passing. Through Gor Gor' singing the concert would cheer for Chinese around the world and spread positive energy. Karen Mok Man Wai and Julian Cheung Chi Lam have already agreed to be guest performers.
Reportedly, Mok Man Wai was the first guest to be invited because Mok Man Wai has known Gor Gor since she was little. She even said that she must be Gor Gor's first fan and agreed to Brother Tan's invitation. Mok Man Wai recalled that she danced for Gor Gor at a RTV singing contest when she was a chance. His all white look was unforgettable and already left a deep impression on young Mok Man Wai.
When asked Gor Gor's former manager Chan Suk Fun which singer she would like to invite to perform Gor Gor's songs? Chan Suk Fun named Cheung Chi Lam to sing WIND CONTINUES TO BLOW! Cheung Chi Lam after receiving the invitation agreed right away and even said that Gor Gor's song was so familiar that even if he had to perform it on the stage tonight, he would have no problem!
Aside from Mok Man Wai and Cheung Chi Lam, even more singers have been invited and would be announced this week.
