SINGAPORE - More than 20 Hong Kong celebrities received a rousing reception from a few hundred Singapore fans at Ngee Ann City's Civic Plaza on Saturday night (March 10).

Stars such as Ruco Chan, Kenneth Ma, Natalie Tong and veteran actress Nancy Sit were among the 24 artists, managed by Hong Kong broadcaster TVB, who turned up. Hong Kong-born, Singapore-raised Apple Chan, who starred in local director Jack Neo's Ah Boys To Men 4 (2017), was also present.

There was a two-hour concert which featured powerhouse vocals and soulful ballads, as well as charming banter from the seasoned performers.

Ms Xiao Wei Ni, 50, who works in the retail industry, was there to support Ruco Chan as she is a fan of his acting. She says the performances, staging and lighting were of "good standard".

The actors and singers were lending their star wattage for the launch of TVB's big big channel, a multi-media platform that brings together broadcast television, online TV and social media.

The app offers recorded videos and live-streaming by TVB artists and online celebrities from China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, giving fans around the world the opportunity to interact with their favourite stars. The big big channel mobile app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
