The annual "Community Chest Charity Show" was held this past Saturday. Like all other charity shows, many artists and singers performed the night's entertainment to help raise more fundings. Despite what looks to be a star-studded night, which is, I can't help but feel it lacks more artists than previous charitable events; a repetition of performers. But then again...as always, it may be just me who feels that way. (shrugs) Anyways, here's a short (very short) recap of what took place that night: =)
The show started off with Hacken Lee and Joey Yung respectively leading some new artists: Vincy, Ivana, Deep, etc. to sing a song (or a couple of songs) reflecting the purpose of Community Chest charitable organization. Then Joey Yung had a duet Susanna Kwan. This duo was awesome! Joey, I knew already was a great singer, but Susanna Kwan, this was the first time I heard her sing (aside from "Hearts of Greed" theme song). She is good!
The cast of HOG appeared several times throughout the night; promoting HOG's climax finale for this coming week; used abalone as a theme to raise money ($168,000 HKD I believe), and performed the skit they (a pretty funny I might add). Fala Chan had a little performance herself for the night. She was able to have her hands stay firmly clasp together while circling her body with her hands like that. A very impressive sight, but a bit heart-wrenching for me. Fala was constantly rubbing her shoulder afterwards, possibly dislocated a shoulder or something to perform that stunt. What's worst: the MCs even suggested Fala to perform it again just so the audience can see it more clearly! Poor Fala. lol...kinda funny how the camera guy kept on swinging the camera back to Stephen Chan as he sits at ease, smiling, and looking on. The hardships of working with TVB. (shakes head)
A rare appearance by Idy Chan and Teresa Cheung really made me look forward to watching this show. It's practically a "Return of the Condor Heroes 83" reunion! All we needed was Andy Lau! But instead we got Leon Lai to perform instead. Leon was the last to perform for the night, singing remixes of all 4 Heavenly Kings' infamous songs. Personally, I didn't really like the way he sang it; not a fan of remixes.
Btw, there was a segment that included Vincy Chan, Raymond Cho, Louis Yuen, and Wong Cho Lam. The segment wasn't all that funny and not one of my favorites for the show, however there was Wong Cho Lam in it. Personally, I think he's a great. Started noticing him in "Best Selling Secrets" as Lau Wah, and now he's impersonating TVB's general manager Stephen Chan. Did a pretty good job. I just think he's quite talented. Just passing along some of my thoughts here. =)
