From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Kit Chan (simplified Chinese: 陈洁仪; traditional Chinese: 陳潔儀; pinyin: Chén Jiéyí) (born September 15, 1972) was the pioneer generation of Singaporean singers to successfully break into the international market, marked in particular by her breakthrough into the competitive and highly critical Taiwanese market with her hit Mandarin album Heartache (心痛) in 1994. She had released an EP "Don't Spoil the Peace" the previous year. She is also the ambassador to the Christian relief organization, "World Vision". Fluent in Cantonese besides Mandarin, she is the first Singaporean singer to break into the Hong Kong Cantopop market and the Taiwanese Mandopop markets. She is a revered star in Singapore, with a quiet but solid fan base wider than those of Annabel Chong, Michelle Chong and Olivia Ong.

She has also managed to display her versatility not only in musical expression, but also linguistic and theatrical prowess, with her Cantopop, and English hits on top of her Mandarin albums. She has held lead roles in the Hong Kong musical Snow.Wolf.Lake with Jacky Cheung – both the Cantonese version in 1997 and the Mandarin production in 2005 – followed by The Legend (where she played the late Teresa Teng), and "Forbidden City" – first performed in 2002 as part of the Esplanade's opening programme, and again in 2003.

In 2004, she announced an indefinite break from the Chinese pop scene, to pursue her own interests.
