Sam Hui, the acclaimed ‘God of Songs’ will be back to Malaysia this May 26th to dazzle and enchant fans with a heart-moving live music performance at the Arena of Stars, Genting Highlands at 8pm.

This legendary singer-cum-actor’s career spanned over 4 decades starting from the 60s. Carving his name with his popular compositions and popularizing Cantopop with the infusion of Western-style music, Sam has great influence on the development of the Hong Kong music industry and bringing Cantopop into mainstream.
He penned most of the compositions using humorous and down to earth Cantonese jargons which became popular slang that appealed to masses. His hilarious lyrics was able to capture and clearly reflect the issues and pressures society was faced with, and gave a voice to the common folk to vent their frustrations.
Sam recorded over 23 Cantonese albums and 4 English albums before he retired from the entertainment scene in 1992. In 2004, he decided to come out of retirement and held multiple come-back concerts filling out arenas across Hong Kong, Canada, Singapore and Malaysia. In these concerts, he paid tribute to the late Leslie Cheung and Anita Mui and claimed that their deaths had influenced his decision to come out of retirement.
Sam is a natural when it comes to comedies and he starred in a string of hit movies. Besides acting, he also provided theme songs and soundtracks for movies such as “The Private Eyes”, “Wealth God Has Come”, “The Last Message”, “The Contract”, “Security Unlimited” and “Aces Go Places” which became instant hits in the eighties and they continue to evoke treasured memories whenever heard, till to date.
