[News] Linda Chung Transforms into Singer-Songwriter Composes Theme Song of Her New Series

Many TVB television artists tried to break into the music industry, but several of them couldn't get away from the fate of being an "one album singer". Linda Chung is committed to break this fate. Aside from her desire of holding her own concert, her ultimate goal is to become a singer-songwriter. LindaBB said: "I don't want people to think I'm just playing around." Linda liked music since childhood, she enjoys humming music in the shower the most. She said: "I remember I already started composing music when I was around 9. At the time, my parents heard me hum a melody and asked me what song I was humming? I answered them: 'I composed it!'" Based on this, Linda ran for Miss Chinese International in 2004 and entered the entertainment circle. Linda still had a bitter love for singing and music, but she never thought she'll have the opportunity to launch her own albums. "I didn't think I'll have the chance, so I just concentrated on filming series. I slowly fell in love with acting. Actually a TV series and its theme song are closely related. With a theme song that sounds good, it really helps the series. Every time I shoot a series, I have a theme song in my heart. I would think about this song while I make an outline of how I'm going to portray the role."

Back then Linda got an "admissions ticket" to enter the music industry, at first LindaBB didn't have much confidence: "Everyone had different views. Some people thought a TV actress goes into singing? Is she just playing around? But I want to prove to everyone that I am very serious. When I first stood on stage to sing, I was very nervous and did a lot of homework myself to overcome the nervousness. When you accumulate more and more experience, then you will enjoy the stage that belongs to you and your singing will be even better!"

Lately, LindaBB has started engaging more into composing music. Not only will she be composing the theme song to her new series All That Is Bitter Is Sweet (aka. The Great Pharmacist), she will also be composing a song for Hubert Wu. Linda felt satisfied: "Usually I'm very passive at work, but this time because I wanted to compose my own song, I took initiative to ask my record company if I could give it a try. I gave 10 song demos to my Boss to listen, and to my surprise one of them was chosen. This gave me more confidence."

LindaBB expressed music composition can inspire imaginations, not only will she think about the singer's voice, but she also has an idea of how the MV should be like. Asked what her trick was to composing music? She said: "Composing music is a training of your concentration. When you have the inspiration, then you have to sit yourself down and keep composing it until the 3 minute song is done. If you stop to chat with a friend or eat something, all that on and off moments, then you'll lose the inspiration."
