Fiona Sit Hoi-Kei is a female Cantopop singer and actress from Hong Kong. She entered the music industry through her uncle's connections with Warner Music Group, Hong Kong. She was signed by Warner Music in 2004.

Biography

Fiona Sit attended Island School and continued her higher education at the City University of Hong KongFiona sit site. " [http://www.fiona-sit.com.hk/profile.php Fiona Sit profile] ." "Fiona Sit Profile." Retrieved on 2008-02-21.] until 2004.

Her first language is Cantonese and she can speak fluent English and French. She mastered Mandarin after living in Taiwan for one year, even creating her first Mandarin album, It's My Day.

Career

Music

Sit released her first album "F Debut" in 2004. It became a best-seller in Hong Kong, being certified gold for sales in excess of 25,000 copies. [ [http://big5.xinhuanet.com/gate/big5/news.xinhuanet.com/ent/2004-12/02/content_2286594.htm big5.xinhuanet.com] ] The album contained the hit ballad "XBF" (short for ex-boyfriend) and another hit "Keanu Reeves Reply."

On 7 January 2005, Warner Music released a single named "886". It included songs such as "Pumpkin Wagon" and "886", which is a short term of "Byebye" in Cantonese ICQ language. The single was a huge success and it was sold out within 3 weeks.

Warner Music released her second album, "Funnygirl", in April 2005. Its success resulted in the release of "Funnygirl (2nd Edition)", which included a DVD with her music videos, including the #1 single "A Boy Like You".

Her third album, "Me", was another CD+DVD combination released on 23 December 2005. It included the song "Love", which was featured in the film "Embrace Your Shadow", which Sit starred in. The DVD was a live concert footage of her "903 Fiona 0811" performance.

She has won a number of awards, including a gold award for best female newcomer at the Hong Kong Music Awards, as well as a gold award for the song "Keanu Reeves' Reply."

In 2006, Sit raised some controversy with her video clip for "Tong But Lut" as it hold great resemblance to the video clip of "ourselves" by Japanese superstar Ayumi Hamasaki. Her song "Dear Fiona" is a Cantonese version of the song "Tomorrow's Way" by Yui.

Sit's official fan club, Club F was established on August 11 2006 in conjunction with her 25th birthday. Her 4th album "Electric Angel" was released on the same day as well. 200 fans attended the first gathering, which was held in a Chinese restaurant in Wan Chai.

After Electric Angel, Sit went over to Taiwan in order to improve her Mandarin skills. In order to keep her fanbase (Hong Kong artists usually release 1 to 2 albums per year to keep up their popularity), Warner released her first compilation, "F" Best", on 12th June 2007. This album includes 3 new songs with 15 selected songs from her previous albums. The album also includes a DVD containing a short film and some MVs of her songs.

After training in Taiwan in one year, Sit mastered the Mandarin dialect, and made her debut Mandarin album "It's My Day" which was released on 18th April 2008. The album is recorded in Taiwan and also in Singapore. It features songs such as "I don't need Tiffany", which refers to the jewelry company and a duet with Khalil Fong, "Overcoming Memories".

TV series

In 2005 Sit went on to film her first Hong Kong TVB series The Academy as a female police trainee. To match the character's circumstances, Fiona cut her hair short. In contrast to her past success, fans responded atrociously towards this change in her image, and were wary of her future career decisions. She followed with a cameo performance on On The First Beat. In addition to this, Fiona was also featured in a weight loss product TV commercial, where she was required to do a dance routine. These two events led to numerous mockeries by the Hong Kong media, and dramatically decreased her fanbase.

2008 bottle attack incident

On February 23 2008, Sit was attacked by a 27 year-old man named Lin during a charity event at Mong Kok. During the incident a bottle of herbal tea was thrown at her which resulted in an injury to Sit's forehead. The attacker, Lin, was detained by security guards and later arrested. The bottle also caused minor injury to a staff member of the event. Sit, who reportedly broke into tears, was taken to Kwong Wah Hospital. [South China morning post.
