Sammi Cheng Biography
Sammi Cheng was discovered from a singing competition when she was 16. She wasn’t the eventual winner (she was 3rd) but showed enough potential to ink a recording deal.
Sammi released her debut album, “Sammi” in 1990; and made her acting debut in 1991 with TV drama “Life of His Own”.
Sammi’s singing breakthrough came in 1992 in a successful collaboration album, “Fiery Motion”, with Aaron Kwok, Andy Hui and Edmund Leung. Her following solo album, “Happy Maze” in 1993 was also quite a hit, and Sammi gradually built her reputation as one of the best female singers in Hong Kong and other Chinese region.
1996 was another breakthrough year for Sammi… as her singing career continued to boom, she starred in popular movie “Feel 100%” and was becoming a recognized actress as well. Since then she has starred in other box office hit like “Needing You”, “Summer Holiday”, “Love on Diet” and “Infernal Affairs” etc.
Besides her entertainment talent, Sammi was also known for her trend-setting image and her ‘underground’ relationship with fellow singer Andy Hui (their relationship ended in 2004).
Sammi was one of the most popular Hong Kong female artists in late 90s and early 2000s. Her popularity has faded a bit in recent years, very much due to her poor health condition (asthma) which forced her into hiatus since early 2005.
Sammi is making her comeback in 2007; she has held a few sold-out concerts in Hong Kong and is set to release her new album and to star in movies again.
