On Thursday I was on my way to Times Square in Causeway Bay to pick up some books from the bookstore when I came across a crowd of people whipping out their cameras. I looked up on the stage to see Cantopop star Jacky Cheung Hok-yau launching his "Year of Jacky Cheung World Tour 2007.
A reporter was interviewing him for an entertainment gossip show very similar to the likes of Access Hollywood and eTalk Daily.
If you ask most Hong Kong people, they love Cheung because he is a true musician who writes his own songs, unlike most of the other pretty faces in the Cantopop scene. And he has staying power with over 20 years in the biz and over 60 Cantonese and 20 Mandarin albums under his belt.
Cheung's tour takes him to eight countries and 14 major cities including Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Toronto, Shanghai and Guangzhou.
