Sammi Cheng rocked thousands at RWS

Guests who were invited to a gala event organised by Resorts World Sentosa were not only treated to a banquet dinner, but also to a special performance by Cantopop queen Sammi Cheng.

The Hong Kong singer, who was in town on Jan 27 and 28 by special invitation, staged two nights of performances for thousands of the resort's VIP guests.

Cheng rocked the stage with popular Mandarin ballads "Zhi De" and "Zhong Sheng Mei Li", as well as upbeat dance songs such as "Chotto", "Ding Ding Dang" and "Forgiveness", which features American-born Chinese rapper MC Jin.

Although Cheng performed for slightly less than an hour, the audience at Compass Ballroom were wowed by her overwhelming performance, with some even singing along softly to "Zhi De".

Photographer Miss Eunice Lim, 27, said that Cheng was very professional while performing, and spoke in Cantonese to the audience in between songs. She also responded to screams or waves from her fans.

"The whole ballroom came alive when she arrived on stage. The performance was awesome and the audience was high the entire time," said Miss Lim.
