Linda Chung Wants to Form a “Virgin” Band

Numerous TVB fadans have attempted to break into the music industry in the past, but with four successful albums already under her belt, Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) may possibly be the most successful of them all.

“I have been a singer for 4 years,” said Linda. “I’ve saved up to over 40 songs, and I still haven’t had the chance to perform at my own concert. Hopefully I’ll be able to do that in 2013!”

Linda expressed that she wants to hold her mini-concert in the Star Hall, a 3,600-seat venue located in the Kowloon Bay International Trade & Exhibition Centerz. “It is not too small and not too big. It allows me to be in close contact with the fans!”

A source close to Linda revealed that Linda’s label, Stars Shine International, is already prepping up a concert for Linda in March 2013. The insider said, “She is now using her sleeping time to jog or swim instead, to improve her physical condition, and to prepare for her upcoming show in March!”

Linda is currently filming for upcoming TVB drama, Brother’s Keeper <巨輪>, costarring Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) and Edwin Siu (蕭正楠). She is also busy doing promotions for TVB drama Missing You <幸福摩天輪>, which is currently airing on TVB Jade.

Regarding Linda’s rumored March concert, Stars Shine International CEO, Herman Ho (何哲圖), did not deny the rumor and stated, “We still have to wait until Linda completes her filming in February.  The costumes, the stage, and other details are still unconfirmed. We do not know if we will invite other female artists as guest performers yet. Right now, we are working out a schedule with TVB. Hopefully a 2013 concert will come true!”

With the support of both TVB and Stars Shine International, Linda will be able to hold her first solo concert in no time! However, holding a concert is the not the only thing Linda had in mind.

Face Magazine reported that Linda had earlier sent in a memo to Herman Ho, requesting if she could form a band with four other TVB fadans – Leanne Li (李亞男), Grace Wong (王君馨), Christine Kuo (苟芸慧), and Eliza Sam (岑麗香). The five best friends are known for their “virgin” statuses within the TVB family.

Leanne and Grace were previously featured as dancers in Linda’s music video, “Call You When I’m Free” <得閒找你>, in 2011. At the time, Leanne and Grace had already thought of working on a new single with Linda.

Christine has recently expressed an interest in forming the a band with Linda. She said, “I do want to form a band with them. Leanne can play the guitar, I can play the keyboard, and Grace can do the singing and dancing. We can get Wong Cho Lam (王祖藍) to write a song for us too!”

Eliza immediately nodded her head in reply, “I used to listen to Spice Girls when I was younger. I once dreamed to be in a band. We can seriously consider this!”

    1. looooooooooo says:

      virgin band? you must be kidding!!joke of the millenium

    2. Michael says:

      How ridiculous would that be if none of them are actually virgins like they claim…

    3. Uni says:

      stupidest comment ever.

    4. RAYLEILAFAN says:

      Virgin band? TVB virgins girl group? Oh God why.

    5. chiki says:

      OMG! LOL!

      Linda, don’t do stupid stuff like this band here. DON’T.

      • yeungforlife says:

        @chiki: agreed.
        Linda’s a popular A-graded actress, so she definitely could find better (&more famous) artists than that for her band!!

    6. kiki says:

      u know, sometimes i think it might be the HK media that’s giving such a stupid headline b/c even if they are or not, why would they give themselves a label like that. insanity, HK media sometimes does everything in exaggerated ways just to boost up sales.

      • AC says:

        It is the media giving them that headline and only 2 of them have talked about being a virgin- Leanne and Grace. The other 3 did not comment when asked and was just assumed to be because I think they’re all pretty religious?

    7. apalucakap says:

      Yeah right, virgin in the backdoor perhaps.

    8. M1RACLE says:

      LOL I think she means she’s a band virgin.

    9. Mark Lim says:

      Virgin Band…that sounds so ridiculously stupid and naive….LOL. What a misleading headline….I can’t do any better, but come on writers, make some better headlines, not tabloid ones!

    10. H says:

      No thank you

    11. khanh says:

      yet again. they are regarding to them as being virgins. all this personal stuff doesnt matter

    12. P. Tan says:

      Hopefully the report is untrue or else it certainly will lead to uncountable criticisms as I, too, think that the name “Virgin” is not a very good idea. Smacks of self- righteousness and exclusiveness.

    13. TN1 says:

      :D No way mann! Oh plz don’t Linda! Ur solo concert will b just fine!!!

    14. Eunice says:

      Sorry to be mean, but besides Linda, the other 4 of them are “kelefes”. Sure, they all have the looks…but to form a band, they need much more talent. The “best” singer out of the 5 is probably Linda, but I still wouldn’t call her a good singer. I know Grace Wong is a talented dancer though. And that’s it…what do they have to show people? 3 of them also can’t speak Cantonese properly. Please let the resources be spent on ones with real musical talent.

    15. dd says:

      This is what Christianity does to you, people.

      • dd says:

        Christianity in HK is probably on-par with the CCP propoganda/brainwashing deal.

        • Larry 3 says:

          haha… da truth.

        • HeTieShou says:

          I agree and I think it is total BS to be claiming yourself to be a virgin and how advertising it too. What the heck?? I highly doubt any of them are and they are lying through their teeth which is another sin that they are committing.

        • HeTieShou says:

          Are there truly any virgins in the e circle?? really hard to believe….

    16. AhQue says:

      Virgin Band may have already been tradeMark-ed. Need to inquire with Mr Branson.

    17. sure-lee says:

      I don’t think this is a good band. I like Linda singing solo.

    18. pepe69 says:

      Anita Mui’s classic song (I’m Virgin Girl) is so hot especially when it means “I’m a virgin. Dont touch me”…

      Who knows maybe the “5 virgins” band will release same song or use the title “Virgin” as 1st single…Maybe they be successful like “Spice Girls”

    19. Clementine says:

      I know being judgemental before they even begin this ‘Virgin Band’ is pretty slack, but seriously…most of the young singers in HK don’t seem to make it big being solo artists, not to mention the girl bands that already exist. I don’t see how this idea is going to spring to life, it may just end up as a big flop imo.

    20. CHo says:

      They are so cute….sounds like those elementary where you put together a small band for a talent show or something!!! :) :) :)

      • Cloud says:

        Yep. It doesn’t sound like elementary school children trying to form their own band. Instead of Virgin, they should use White Rose, White Lilies, or White Angels.

      • Nicole says:

        Their standard should be also on par with those elementary school kids.

      • lise says:

        Not sure if Eliza has any musical talent, but she might be able to dance and sing. It doesn’t matter if she can sing well, because Linda or Grace can cover her with better Cantonese. Christine has some musical experience and performed the flute in the pageant, but she has a problem with dancing fast.

    21. Mazeltov says:

      Take away the ‘virginity’ aspect of the band, not a convincing selling point. She might just said, forming a five all-girl band. Why mention virginity,TMI.

      • dd says:

        Who’s the target audience anyway?

        Other virgins?

        I mean, is it really OK to go on FB and see that one of your friends has ‘liked’ their virgin band?

    22. Mlove says:

      What if one got married and lose her virginity? Can she still be part of the band? It’s good y’all are virgin or not, it shouldn’t make a big deal out of it. It’s better if you all call the band foreign girls.

    23. Nelly says:

      You know I had respect for her when she rejected going with dinner dates with businessman but this is a really stupid idea, no offence. I like her personality, but not her acting or singing, I cringe at the idea of a concert, but then again, anyone can hold concert with the lack of talent in hk showbiz as long as u have a strong backing.

    24. Funn Lim says:

      Maybe they’re just joking?

      And maybe virgin is a wrong word. Virginal will be better.

    25. Yen says:

      Isshhh!! Linda singing in the CD version already so so to listen to..her singing LIVE??!
      I won’t attend even I’m given a free ticket!!
      She should really just focus into her acting!!
      Great example Raymond Lam, not everyone can be like the 3 heavenly kings-Andy,Aaron+Jacky that do well in both acting & singing.
      Raymond acting getting worse n worse!

      • Sel_fi_wu says:

        with lack of singing talents especially LIVE evidently that’s why they have to hype this VIRGIN title to sell her mini concert make her male fans drool at the virgin mention and make her a pure little angel in front her female idolizers

    26. j says:

      linda should stick with acting. her vocals sucks. she is a bad singer T___T
      this is so BS.

      • Cara says:

        I agree. Her voice is too weak and breathy for a singer, which seriously limits the types of songs she can sing. And her songs are so boring. The only song I liked is “Actually I’m Not Happy,” and sadly, Ava sang that song better in a cover than Linda!

        • looooooooooo says:

          her voice is not crap. stage movement is unvolatile. I am surprise she had even release four albums

    27. exoidus says:

      This is all TVB’s fault they wanted to increase the MV of their so-called goddesses and came up with this wonderful idea.

      I.e rape their artists in every TV series in order to attract viewers and later on sell their rare TVB virgins at a high price.

      Linda BB isn’t stupid unless working at TVB also make one stupid like watching their series, haha.

      No wonder the HK music industry is so dead with ppl who can’s speak english singing canto songs or perhaps they will sing english songs.

      If any group at all they should call it “CB Aliens” or “Christian Girls” :D

      • Lol says:

        Maybe TVB is trying to set up the BIGGEST rape scene of all time…5 virgins lol. All jokes aside, Linda you’re very likable but please stick with acting & leave the singing to real singers.

      • Fox says:

        Form their band name like this and the PR strategy will fail.

    28. Lol says:

      With the divorce rate nowadays…good luck to these virgins being virgins again for their second husbands :-).

    29. Fox says:

      So it’s just a mini-concert? Lolz, I did thought it’s a concert and wondered how Linda can sing more than 30 songs live. But with a mini concert, she only needs to sing 10-15 songs and it’s her top.

      • clamine says:

        How long is a mini concert vs a full concert?

        • Fox says:

          A mini concert will have 10-15 songs of this singer only, with guests’ performance the number of songs will reach to 15-20.

          In a concert a singer must sing about 30-35 songs, with guests the number is around 35-40 something.

          A mini concert normally 1.5h and a concert is 3h or longer.

    30. Mr. Lee says:

      And their 1st song will be doing a cover for Madonna’s ‘Like a Virgin’ using auto-tune.

    31. HeTieShou says:

      Virgins??Honestly, even if they were all virgins, they will eventually lose it to TVB during a rape scene in a TVB series.

    32. Anna says:

      im not sure if that girl Eliza Sam and Christine kuo have any musical talent! Linda dont form a band with them, you’ll waste ur time!

      • Mr. Lee says:

        These actresses have little to no input in what their management wants them to do. If it makes money and teenage boys have wet dreams, they will produce it.
