Nancy Sit announces a tribute concert for Michael Lai

26 Dec – Nancy Sit recently announced that a special concert will be held as a tribute to her good friend and great composer Michael Lai, who passed away earlier this month.

As reported on Mingpao, the actress, who spoke to the media at the press conference of the upcoming show, shared that the concert, "To Michael Lai With Love Forever", will be held at the Macpherson Stadium in Mongkok in January 2020.

The proceeds will be donated to the K For KIDS Foundation – an organisation that supports and nurture the musical talents of children from disadvantaged group.

"Michael has brought in many newcomers into the industry and made them into superstars, and composed more than 700 songs. Although he has passed away, his music spirit will continue on," she said.

Nancy revealed that aside from herself, other performers who will participate in the concert include Jackie Chan, William So, Edmund Leong, Alex Lam, Alex To, Vivian Lai, and Connie Man.

"Michael's family will also be attending the concert, although we're not sure yet whether they will appear on stage," she added.

Asked if Michael's ex-wife Susanna Kwan will be participating as well, Nancy said that she had not been in contact with the actress and that Susanna might not even be in Hong Kong at the time.

Michael Lai passed away on 1 December. He was 73.
