Chilam Cheung's first individual concert was held this week. The first concert since he debut 20 years ago, Chilam invited good friends Grasshopper and Charlene Choi to the show as performing guests. His wife Anita Yuen and son Morton were also present to support.
April 1st is the day when pop star Leslie Cheung passed away and in remembrance of him, Chilam impersonated Leslie at the show. He sang Leslie's song and imitated his moves. During the performance, he even took off his shirt and showed off the six packs that he worked very hard on.
Chilam also talked about his love life on stage and his "declaration of love" to wife Anita touched many. Dated her for 20 years, he said he felt pressured in the beginning because he was often asked when would they break up, tie the knot, or divorce; but he didn't regret making the relationship public.
"Many people objected me opening it up, it's like ending a career for idol singers. But I think it's all worth it," he said. "I'm very lucky that I can find a family in the showbiz. Thank you for giving me a family and a child!"
His touching words touched Anita and her eyes started to get teary. The funny thing was, Christine Ng, who was sitting next to Anita, was more emotional and cried already.
After he thanked his wife, Chilam then said he is thankful to have his son Morton. While he was singing a personal song he wrote for Morton, photos of Morton when he was just born and as a baby were shown on the screen.
