George Lam

George Lam Chi Cheung, also known professionally by his surname Lam, is a popular veteran singer in Hong Kong. Lam studied at the Diocesan Boys' School in Kowloon, Hong Kong. He lived in England, where he studied at Dover College, and the United States for many years before returning to Hong Kong.

Lam was the lead singer for a band called "''Jade''" until he went solo with his first English album "Lam" in 1976. His first Cantonese album, having the same name, was also released in the same year. He also recorded two versions of the Billy Joel song "Uptown Girl" in Cantonese. Lam has remained popular in Hong Kong for three decades. Unlike many local singers, he writes a number of his own songs; some of them have also been recorded by other singers including Teresa Carpio, with whom he recorded an album and has given joint concerts, most recently in 2007.

In addition to his singing career, Lam has also acted in many films, making his film debut in ''Luckies Trio'' in 1978. Possibly his most memorable role was as a Japanese journalist in ''Boat People'' , directed by Ann Hui.

Lam first married in 1980 and has a son and a daughter; that marriage ended in divorce. In 1996 he married singer/actress Sally Yeh, with whom he has appeared in concert.
