I am going to introduce you to my world.
My public life, as columnist, image designer, producer, performer, recording artist, and now as guest music lecturer is well known.
I love to sing, photograph and design. I had a flourishing art business for over twenty years.
No matter how busy I am, I make time for my family, friends and fans. Here we go!



上期提到我和「鷹」之緣,除了《老鷹樂隊》The Eagles外,還有心目中另一「鷹」-許冠英。
我和「英」之緣,始於一九九六年的一個晚上。那時候,還是流行歌手的我,唱的全是中文廣東歌,偶爾才會唱一兩首國語歌,唱英文歌的機會更是少之又少。還清楚記得,那天晚上,甫一踏進那間私人的錄音室,我怔住了!第一次近距離一次過見到幾位熟悉面孔的巨星!他們都很友善,許冠傑坐在鍵琴的位置上,正正面對著歌者的位置,當時有兩位主音歌星-許冠英及泰迪羅賓,另外還有幾位出色的band友,他們也一起轉身過來與我這個小妹妹打招呼!當時筆者確實是黃毛丫頭,根本不知天高地厚,不太知道他們究竟有多少影響力,究竟有多紅!更無法想像我竟會在三個獨當一面的巨星面前初試啼聲!他們當時問我喜歡什麼英文歌曲?我想了一想,小時候除了只喜歡聽譚詠麟、梅艷芳等本地流行巨星之外,英文歌就多數聽《Carpenters》了。於是他們二話不說,就彈起了Yesterday Once More,我也戰戰兢兢地唱了起來...
他們意外地發現我這個有點靦腆的妹子竟然可以一首接一首的,在這些樂壇大哥大面前斗膽唱起他們也喜愛的Carpenters的經典歌曲:Yesterday Once More、Rainy Days and Mondays、Superstar、Top Of The World、This Masquerade...唱得忘形,彈也不亦樂乎!
自此,筆者便成為了他們的女主音,每個星期的某一個夜晚,與他們這隊超級星band一起(因此Band leader馮添枝先生給我們取名為《HIT Band》),在那錄音室內non-stop jam歌,與他們一起唱了無數的經典金曲,也一起吃過無數愉快的宵夜。由那時開始,我便非常幸運地有一個好像那些公開比賽的鍛鍊平台一樣,還可受他們的音樂薰陶,煉出一身好唱功,也擴闊了流行音樂的視野,間接訓練成獨特的發燒音感。
第一次與他們一起演出的是在香港著名的海洋皇宮大酒樓夜總會-當時香港數一數二的大型酒樓表演場地,已在二零零五年結業,因此也成了我們的最後一次在那裡一起演出。我負責演唱Carpenters的情歌,許冠英專長唱Elvis Presley的快歌,同台演出的還有巨星鍾鎮濤,就是我們的B哥哥,坐上客有當時還沒有出版兒歌專輯的李家仁醫生...當晚的一點一滴,至今還歷歷在目。

Music, Movie, Musicals and Me

Music and theatre have had a close relationship. Theatre can associate with movie or musical theatre (musicals) and I love both of them. I sing theme songs in some Asian movies, such as“When I Dream” (theme from “Dragon Squad”). It easily recalls people not only from scenes of the movie, but also from memory. I love theme music from movies as well as songs from Musicals, especially Broadway. I remember I have fallen in love with Broadway since I was 12. Musical films characteristically contain elements reminiscent of theatre; performers often sing and dance as if there is a live audience watching. Some musical films were adapted for the stage after their great success, such as “The Wizard of Oz” and“Fame”, while successful musicals also definitely received movie adaptations, i.e. stage-to-film adaptations, such as“Jesus Christ Superstar” and “Evita”. We can share our moments after all these years by passing through “Over the Rainbow”, “Out Here On My Own”, “I Don’t Know How To Love Him”, “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”, “You Must Love Me” ……

“Moon River” (theme from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”) has to be selected in my new album "Theatre" although it has been covered by hundreds of artists all over the world. I sing it each time, it seems like a live performance accompanied by the pianist just in front of the audience.

“The Way We Were” (theme from “The Way We Were”) must be selected because it was the song of one of my favorite singers that influences me most, Barbra Streisand, and I won the singing contest with it!

“For All We Know” (theme from “Lovers and OtherStrangers”) was selected, of course, in tribute to my forever idol, the Carpenters.

WORDS from Astor :

I hope all of you would like the presentation of my albums.
Everlasting love dedicated to SUPERSTAR...
My dearest family,
Mom and Dad,
All the one I love,
Teachers and tutors, who have enlightened me,
All singers and writers of the original songs, especially Karen and Richard Carpenter.
All musicians,
All my fans and friends.
Thanks GOD.
