16 Jul - Grace Wong is finally releasing her first single as an independent singer using the stage name G. Racie.
As reported on Mingpao, the TVB actress recently held a press conference to announce the release of the Mandarin song, "Casada", where she expressed her happiness over finally launching the song after six months of preparation.
"I chose to record a dance number in the hopes of bringing joy to everybody during the pandemic. Everybody needs love and I wish everybody around me to have blossoming love," she added.
Grace revealed that she actually self-funded the production of "Casada", which cost her a six figure sum - an investment that was fully supported by her husband Daniel.
"He was very supportive of me before and said that we should realise my dream [of singing] first, otherwise I will regret it in the future. I had wanted to give up many times, but he continued to encourage me. He is worth 100 points. No points can be deducted," she said.
Daniel also showed his support publicly at the event by presenting her with a bouquet of red roses during the event, much to the actress' surprise and delight.
Friends including Eliza Sam, Sisley Choi, and Joyce Cheng also came to express support, while Linda Chung and Christine Kuo recorded a video message congratulating Grace for her new song.
The singer also took to social media to announce the release of the new song, which she described to be a "Reggaeton style" Chinese song.
She wrote, "Casada means "I am married" in Spanish. I am very happy to release this song on the special day of 11 July, the third anniversary of my marriage and giving my husband this special gift. Marriage is a great thing in life. It is also the beginning of a new phase of two people. I would like this to become a song of blessings for those who are looking forward to marriage or who are already married."
