Kelly Chan Wai Lam 陈慧琳

Kelly Chen 陈慧琳 (September 13, 1973) is a Hong Kong Cantopop singer and actress. After graduation from Parsons, she returned to her homeland in Hong Kong to be with her family. Kelly's talent caught the attention of an agent and soon got her first big break in the film Whatever Will Be, Will Be in 1995, and was featured as a singer for the soundtrack of the film. Later that year, Kelly released her first Cantonese album, "Dedicated Lover". The album was a success in Hong Kong and furthered her acting and musical career.

In 2005, her song "Hope" from the Korean TV series Dae Jang Geum (see videp clips attached below) earned Kelly boosted her status in the Cantopop industry as it was a popular song in both Hong Kong and mainland China. This song also improved her earnings as well as the company promoting her at the time. "Hope" was also the top song of charts for 20 radio stations in China and had even set a high record for ringtone downloads. A month after the initial launch, there were a total of over 3 million downloads and to date, the accumulated figure is over 6 million. As such, her record company had earned $5 million after deductions.

Kelly has also wrapped up her tour, "Lost in Paradise" in 2005 in Asia and 2006 in the United States. "Lost in Paradise" lasted three hours and contained 35 songs from Kelly's lengthy 10-year music career. Vanness Wu was a guest to her concert in Las Vegas.

In 2007, Kelly was appointed as Hong Kong "Innovative entrepreneur Ambassdor" and had sung the theme song "Innovation" (創) for the "Innovative Entrepreneur of The Year 2007" organised by City Junior Chamber, Hong Kong. Kelly's responsibility is to promote the awareness of entrepreneurship to youngsters and to attend the various promotion events organised.

Her film debut was in 1995, in Whatever Will Be, Will Be (仙樂飄飄 1995, Xian Yue Piao Piao, literally Heavenly Music Floating in the Air).

Hi Waliz
oh, it doesn't matter if you have not heard of her but she is quite famous in HK, Taiwan and mainland CHina. Malaysian hotties hmm...i will consider that in my subsequent post but let me do some extra research first hehe

What a bad day for me. Someone has reported to the mybloglog's admin that my avator was being too sexy or 'adult' in other sense and thus, the admin sent to me a private message informing me about the breach and the next thing I realised was that my blog in mybloglog was no longer to be seen on mybloglog page. (only accessible via my community )

Anyway I have changed my avatar and a report has been sent to the admin in this regard.

What a bad bad year end luck!!

lol. sorry for reading those comment above me. I can't help but to be busy body also. If you asking me, I don't think your avatar before was too explicit.

anyway, back to the topic, I heard about Kelly before from my Chinese friend. He said she is a 'bomb'. well, he's correct at certain point. But I look at her as a matured and independent person. [totally base on the first impression]
