Following a disappointing off-key live performance of her debut her single, Fala Chen’s (陳法拉) contract with her album label, Rising Star Music, will end this month. Many assumed that since she is dating Daniel Sit (薛世恒), a major stakeholder of the label Rising Star Music and the son of the popular KTV chain Neway, that Fala will receive special treatment in becoming a singer.
The abrupt news came as a surprise since Fala just released her album, Beautiful Life (美麗人生) last month. It was rumored that Fala signed with Rising Star Music in 2010, in order to be promoted to “Big Sister” status alongside Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣).
The CEO of Rising Star Music, Herman Ho ( 何哲圖), explained that producing the album was simply to fulfill Fala’s dreams of becoming a singer. Mr. Ho confirmed that the company’s contract with Fala only encompassed one music album release. Due to Fala’s busy filming schedule, she will not be able to commit to any promotional events for her future albums. It served both parties’ best interests that they do not proceed with a new contract.
Herman further emphasized that Rising Star Music will now focus on promoting Linda Chung, as her schedule is more flexible to attend promotional events. Herman also added that Rising Star Music will also promote the label’s other artists, including Alfred Hui (許廷鏗), Joyce Cheng (鄭欣宜), Elanne Kong (江若琳) , Super Girls, Wu Hung Kwun (胡鴻鈞) and Jinny Ng (吳若希).
It was rumored that Rising Star Music invested heavily to promote Fala’s album, A Beautiful Life. In fact, rap duo Fama (農夫), had to cancel their previously scheduled concert because all the label’s resources were dedicated to Fala. When asked to clarify the rumor, Fama’s Luk Wing (陸永) said, “That’s not true. We had to cancel the concert because it wasn’t promoted enough. We promise to make it up to our fans and sponsors, and hope to put on a concert in a few months.”
In addressing the rumor that Jinny is the next rising star to become “Big Sister” following Fala’s departure from the label, Jinny said, “Really? No way! Who said that? The boss has so much money, he can sign as many new artists as he wishes and promote them!”
