At the 2011 TVB8 Golden Melody Music Awards last night, Raymond Lam (林峯) was a big winner and won four awards! With his song, Let Me Love You One Hour <讓我愛你一小時>, Raymond won a Golden Melody song award, as well as the “Favorite Male Singer Award in Mainland China” and “Favorite Male Singer” awards. Hong Kong pop music queen, Joey Yung (容祖兒), won a total of three awards, including “Most Popular Female Artist.” Newcomer, Mag Lam (林欣彤), received the “Best New Artist Award.”
Releasing his first Mandarin album this year, Raymond acknowledged that it was a great start to win four awards, “Although I put in more time on my music this year, I still feel that it is not enough. I can do even better!”
Failing to complete separate Mandarin and Cantonese albums this year, Joey Yung vowed to double her efforts next year. With TVB’s improved relationship with Hong’s Kong’s Big Four Recording Companies (EMI Group, Sony Music, Universal Music, and Warner Music Group), there may be additional singers to fight for awards. Joey noted that it would be more interesting with additional competition. Ultimately, the audience will be the biggest benefactor.
