3 Jan – Hong Kong band RubberBand couldn't help but feel touched after receiving the accolade for My Favourite Band at the CRHK Ultimate Song Chart Awards.
As reported on Mingpao, lead vocalist No. 6, who spoke on behalf of the other members, stated that they are thankful to the Hong Kong people for the support they showed to the band.
"Everybody has been experiencing a lot of unhappiness since June, and I believe it would be better in the future. Have faith," he said.
The singer also dedicated the award to his mother, who is currently battling cancer.
Meanwhile, drummer Loach stated that Hong Kong is where they grew up, that they derived their strength from the city and the people living in it, and thus will use their music to provide encouragement to everyone.
The victory was bittersweet for the band, after it was previously rumoured that they could be banned from performing in mainland China due to their political stance.
