Charity pop concert My Generation, My Songs brings together local entertainers from across the generations. Among the performers are stars from the 1950s and 1960s such as singer-actress Chong Set Png, 80, singer Chin Whai, 74, and singer Solo Chu, 73.

It will be held at The Star Theatre at Buona Vista on Nov 10 at 7pm.

Chin was in fact a fan of Chong back in the day. He tells Life!: "I was a big fan of Hokkien films and she was the movie queen. I still have her beautiful magazine covers from then."

He quips: "I knew her then but she didn't know me."
