The Hong Kong Welcomes The Olympics roadshow event <全港同心迎奧運> reached Tai Po today and performers at the show included Hacken Lee (李克勤), Prudence Liew (劉美君), Yumi (裕美) and HotCha.
Prudence was suffering from a throat infection, so she was unable to sing live at the show. She explained that due to her recent rehearsals for her forthcoming concert, she has injured the right hand side of her larynx, so the doctors have prescribed her with antibiotics and rest in order to recover. She said that she has only just regained her voice, so she did not want to strain it again.
Prudence also told of how she had suffered from shock after hearing that her mother had been admitted into hospital in San Francisco. She said that she was so worried that she cried all morning, but was comforted when she found it that it was just an adverse reaction to medication and that her mother was fine. She added that her mother will be flying over shortly to watch her concert performance.
Hacken revealed that he had received an invitation from TVB to go to Beijing in August and assist with their coverage of the Olympic Games, however he was still considering the job because he was worried that his son would forget his face if he was away for too long. He admitted that this was a once in a lifetime opportunity, but is weighing up the balance between a job he would love to do and being around for his son.
Asked if this would affect his future plans to go on concert tours, Hacken smiled that this would not be the case because he has to earn milk money, especially now that the price of milk powder has gone up.
