Gigi Lai (黎姿) took a break from her low profile lifestyle and appeared at the Friends For Life 2013 <歲月友情演唱會> concert on November 10.
Rarely seen in public since retiring from the entertainment industry in 2008, Gigi mostly focused on caring for her three daughters and managing her brother’s beauty clinic. Although busy with her new roles, Gigi still keeps in touch with her industry friends and cherishes these relationships. When good friends Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧) and Jerry Lamb (林曉峰) invited her to a special concert, Gigi initially told them she will consider attending but ultimately showed up and sat for the entire show.
The concert was headlined by Jerry, Ekin Cheng (鄭伊健), Jordan Chan (陳小春), Chin Ka-lok (錢嘉樂), and Michael Tse (謝天華), the main cast members of the popular Young and Dangerous <古惑仔> movie franchise. The five performed many songs from the films as well as from their personal repertoire, exuding youthful energy and exchanged many jokes throughout the set. They also dedicated several songs to their wives, who enjoyed the show alongside Gigi.
While performing the movie’s theme song, “Age of Friendship” <友情歲月>, all but Jordan took off their shirts, showing off their fit physiques. When teased about keeping his clothes on, Jordan quickly defended himself, exclaiming, “We did not do this during rehearsals; who knew you guys were going to strip? Embarrassed? Why should I be?”
Even though the five were already surrounded by their loving families and adoring fans, their evening became even more perfect because of Gigi’s presence. Appearing in four films in the Young and Dangerous franchise, Gigi’s popularity soared following her role as Ekin’s stuttering girlfriend. Their reunion at last night’s concert prompted cheers and even some tears. Ekin’s eyes were visibly wet while he thanked Gigi for attending the show. “We met each other while making the movies. You were also there when I had my first concert in Shanghai. I was young and didn’t know how to express my gratitude then, but I thank you with all my heart! Thank you for coming!”
