This concert also marks her 50th years in show business.
Frances Yip was discovered at the Sharp’s Night Four Lights Competition on Hong Kong television in 1969. She began her career singing commercial jingles, and recorded her first album, Love without End, the same year. In 1973, she was named Ambassador of Hong Kong for Cathay Pacific and the Hong Kong Tourism Board. She was then signed by EMI Records, and went on to record over 80 albums in a career that spanned almost half a century.
She was also known for her versatility, being able to sing in a variety of languages including Cantonese, Mandarin, English, Japanese, Malay, and Thai. At the Hong Kong sovereignty transfer ceremony in 1997, she was the face of the nation, serving as co-presenter.
She achieved another milestone in her career in 1998 when she had two sold-out concerts at the Hong Kong Coliseum, backed by the 92-piece Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra.
Frances Yip had released more than 80 albums so far, with songs mostly in Cantonese, Mandarin and English as well as in Thai, Malay, Spanish and Japanese. She is best known for performing theme songs for Hong Kong TVB television drama series in the 1980s and early 1990s.
