Whoo its a while since I lasted posted anything at all! Today I'll be introducing you guys to songstress/actress Nicola Cheung (張燊悅) from Hong Kong. She has acted in several lead roles in TVB dramas such as Mr. Diana, FM 701, and 美麗人生 (Reaching Out). Athough she has released several AVEPs and an album, she's not really well known in Hong Kong for singing. I've got her album "Angel of Mercy" and its really great - features the hit track "Angel of Mercy" written by Maurice Gibb of Bee Gees and lyrics written by her. This song is about war and how much suffering it causes to people around the world and how much she wishes someday everthing will be better. Very meaningful song with great lyrics. The music video of the track 你的美少女戰士 (Your Pretty Warrior) was kinda amusing and funny. But I think the best track by her is "上帝愛我" (God Loves Me). The track was an instant karaoke hit when it was released and was used by her record company, Universal Music for an allstars cover version of the same track featuring reknowned singers such as Hacken Lee (李克勤), Cecilia Cheung (張柏芝), Leslie Cheung (張國榮） - 同步過冬 (Having Winter Together) . Her crazy rap/rock track "Old Folks Home" (老人院) with rock band Lamkee (臨記) was interesting and kinda shocking. I personally think her songs are great because she has a really special voice and writes most of her songs and lyrics.
