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!”
