Joey Yung (容祖兒) is delighting fans with her dynamic opening of the “Pretty Crazy Joey Yung Concert” at the Hong Kong Coliseum. “God of Songs” Jacky Cheung (張學友) surprised fans when he appeared on stage as a guest and performed his song “So Close Yet So Far <這麽近那麽遠> with Joey. The crowd roared in cheers as they sung alongside the dream collaboration.
After the song ended, Joey said that she is a big fan of Jacky and had frequently listened to his songs during her high school days. Jacky laughed in response and said, “People would normally say they’ve listened to my songs since elementary school, or that their parents heard them in their childhood. Anyway, I’ve have to really thank Joey. I wrote this song and with her singing it, I’ve gained more royalties. Joey, if you sing more of my songs, I’ll come as a guest performer again for your next concert!”
Joey pointed out that having Jacky as her guest performer is her biggest remuneration in her entire 20-year-old career in the industry. Hearing this, Jacky jokingly called out to Albert Yeung (楊受成) the chairman of the Emperor Group, to “pay up” and give him some payment as well.
Jokes aside, Jacky revealed that he admired Joey’s passion for music and determination in constantly challenging herself. When Joey approached him at the gym to be a guest performer at her concert, he immediately agreed.
Jacky said, “You are now everyone’s idol. Your fans really know how to pick! I’m also a very selective person and is stingy with compliments, but I think Joey is an well-rounded singer in the industry nowadays. She is passionate with singing, humble, hard-working, and self-reflective. She is really worthy to be a model for younger singers to learn from!” The entire crowd applauded in response.
