Cantopop night with Stephy Tang

Hong Kong Cantopop singer and actress Stephy Tang will give a solo concert at Shenzhen Gymnasium.
Tang started her singing career in the music group Cookies. The main style of Cookies was teen pop. When Tang started her solo singing career, her record company, EMI, wanted her to develop a more grown-up look and style. Some of the songs on her first solo album, “Coloring Stephy,” have a soft jazz influence and more mature sound than her previous music in Cookies. Generally, the album was popular, and it was certified gold by IFPI Hong Kong.
In 2007, she performed at the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Charity Gala in Vancouver, Canada with many other artists.
Tang performed her first headline solo concert, called “Stephy, See Thru Live 2007” in 2007 at the Star Hall in Hong Kong. She then released a live album featuring songs from this concert.
She also did a Mandarin version of “Breaking Free” from “High School Musical” with Anson Hu.
In July 2009, Tang published her first romance novel, “Running Alongside Me.” The book takes the form of a diary about a girl who recently broke up with her boyfriend. She goes on a cruise and writes about the things she sees and does.
In December 2009, Tang released her collection of greatest hits plus new songs in a 2CD+DVD collection called “Music Cafe.”
