After releasing an EP in 2010 and a duet single in 2011, Malaysian Chinese singer-songwriter Michael Wong (王光良) is back with a new song, “Give Yourself” <給自己>, and a new album, which will be released in July.

Since it has been two years since Michael came up with any new material, many of his fans wondered where he had disappeared to. At a press conference held last week, Michael said he had been busy with the writing and creative work for his new album, which has finished production and will be released in July.

On his new single, “Give Yourself,” Michael calls it “a song with much positive energy.” Michael said, “I hope that everyone can be a little better to themselves,” adding that his new album will be a bit more cheerful and lighthearted than his previous ones.

Known for writing hit songs like “Fairy Tale” <童話> and “First Time” <第一次>, Michael nevertheless remains modest about his music. “I’ve never put thought into what type of songs would become popular,” he said. “When I was writing them, I didn’t know [they] would become popular. I just wrote them based on my ideas.”

However, Michael is aware that his musical gifts lie mainly in songwriting, which is why he is hesitant to participate in shows like I Am a Singer <我是歌手>. “There are many singing competitions right now,” he shared. “Some have invited me to be a judge, but I’m afraid of grading other people. I feel like my grades might influence their entire lives.

I Am a Singer is a show that compares singing skill,” Michael went on to say. “I think my strength is in songwriting. If there were a show that compared songwriting, then perhaps I would participate.”

      WOW, he has a nice voice! I have never heard of him before. He is Malaysian too?? One of my most favorite female singers Fish/Jasmine Leong is Malaysian too. There are many talented Malaysian singers. Hope that more of them will get known.

        He is one half of the very famous Michael & Victor, disbanded a long time ago. Many Malaysians who made it in Taiwan are usually songwriters. By the way he us very very famous, just that if you’re not into Chinese music they will not be in your radar.

          Jayne,
          Thanks and I actually have already heard that song many years ago!! I just did not know that it was sung by him. There are many great songs that I often listen to but just don’t know who sang them. Thanks again for the link! I was looking for that song before but just could not find it since I did not know the name and singer. I am glad that I finally do now. Thanks a lot Jayne!

          Strange though, how come Michael still here and where is Victor? And will they ever reunite?

          I am however a bigger fan of Terry Lin who to me is a master of songs. Perfect voice, perfect technique.

          By the way I heard Michael performed life once, many years ago. He looked tired, he still looked tired. He had and still has this perpetually puffy eyes! But beautiful voice. That man can sing.

          HTS, do you like Ah Niu? Not the best singer but a very good songwriter.

          Funn,
          I think Ah Niu is an a decent singer, but yes, he is a good song writer. As singer, he is only average to me.
          Any singer that can sing well live is considered a good singer. I remember the American teen singer Debbie Gibson who is still one of my most favorite singers of today. She was a producer, song writer and singer at such a young age of 16. She also sang live and can sing really well. Rare talents like that are hard to find these days.

          Taiwanese singer Winnie Xin has a song also called 童话. It was used as the themesong for taiwanese series Yan Yu Jiang Nan.

      I thought the article was about that half-gwailo actor trying out a second career.
