Andy Hui is a Cantopop singer from Hong Kong who is also an accomplished actor with a long list of films to his credit. Born in Hong Kong on August 12, 1967, he initially established himself as the first runner-up in the 1986 New Talent Singing Awards. A recording contract followed, leading to a steady stream of albums and hit singles. While his popularity peaked around the turn of the century, he continued to release new music regularly even as his star began to fade over time. In addition to his Cantopop output, he kept busy as an actor beginning in the early '90s. At times, his starring roles tended to overshadow his musical output, particularly in later years.
