Leon Lai

One of Hong Kong’s “Four Heavenly Kings,” actor, film director, and Cantopop singer Leon Lai (December 11, 1966) took the Chinese-language pop scene by storm in the early 90s. Born Lai Chit in Beijing, he relocated to Hong Kong with his father after his parents’ divorce. At the age of 15, he traveled to the United Kingdom to study for three years and returned to Hong Kong in 1984 with the idea of pursuing a career in music. In 1986, Leon Lai finished up second on the competition New Talent Singing Awards and signed a recording contract with the label Capital Artists. Following several frustrated attempts to put out an album, Leon Lai moved to Polygram and released his award-winning studio debut Leon in 1990, followed by over 40 commercially acclaimed titles throughout the decade, including the hits “Wo De Qing Ai” (1992), “There’s Not One Day I Don’t Think of You” (1994), “Just Love Me for One Day” (1997), and “Sugar in the Marmalade” (2000). In parallel with his music career, he also had his fair share of success as an actor during the 2000s, winning Best Actor at the 2002 Golden Horse Ceremony for his role in the horror film Three: Going Home and starring in the incredibly popular crime thriller series Internal Affairs in 2003. In 2016, Leon Lai played a handful of shows titled Random Love Songs 4D to celebrate his 30th anniversary in the music business, followed by the concert series Leon Lai Talk & Sing 2021 Concert in 2021.
