The life of William
William So Wing Hong was born in 1967 in Hong Kong, China, and would go on to become an extremely talented Cantopop singer and feature film actor. His career took off when he was named runner-up in the New Talent Singing Awards in 1985 – he was an instant hit. He landed his first record deal with Capital Artists, and since then has released over 25 studio albums, plus countless singles, EPs and compilations. His songs have been released in both Cantonese and Mandarin, giving him nation- and worldwide appeal. In 1998 he released "Don’t Want To Be Alone", which became the theme tune for Chinese medical drama series "Healing Hands". The following year he starred in his first feature film, "Fly Me to Polaris", and in the years that followed was featured in over ten more films. So has a recognisable aesthetic and is well known for his fashion sense and noticeable eyewear. He’s always seen rocking a new pair of specs, and also gravitates toward striking – yet chic – clothing. With the glitz and glamour he brings to the stage, his live shows become a spectacle for the audience’s ears and eyes. The Cantopop singer welcomed a son, Jazz, in March 2017, making him a first-time father at 49. When Jazz was just a few months old, So reported that he felt his son disliked his music, which seemed to make him drift off to sleep. But luckily for So’s career, he has plenty of other fans keen to buy his albums – and tickets to his shows from StubHub!
