Dave Wong

Dave Wong, known in as Wang Chieh and in as Wong Kit was a Chinese pop star famous in the late 1980s and early 1990s.


He was born in Taiwan as the son of a former Shaw Brothers actor, Wong Hap, and given the name . He grew up in Hong Kong. Wong shot to the top of the Tawainese music charts in 1987 with his debut album ''A Game, A Dream'', which sold over 500,000 copies, and found great success in Hong Kong during 1989. Many of his songs were used as the theme songs of popular TVB series. He is one of the few artists from Taiwan to break into the Hong Kong market, with four years of chart-topping record sales. He is likewise successful in other markets such as Malaysia, Singapore and China.

His music can be described as being melancholy and haunting in a blend of rock and ballads. Wong is an established songwriter having written many of his most popular songs but also covers songs by other artists, both Asian and western. However, he delivers all his songs with distinctive passion and energy.

To date he has recorded 26 studio albums in Mandarin and 11 in Cantonese. In addition, numerous compilations of his popular songs have been released.
In 2007 January, he released his latest Mandarin album ''Goodbye Madman.''
