Since her return to the music scene almost three years ago, Sammi Cheng Sau-Man, often dubbed as “Cantopop queen” and commonly known as a diva, released her first Cantonese album “Faith” that includes 11 gospel sound tracks that were created with a mixture of pop-culture music elements and messages of faith, hope, and love.
This June, Sammi released the Mandarin album, “Faith”, which not only covers the songs in the original Cantonese album, but also includes new sound tracks sung in Mandarin.
In a personal column published in Mingpao Weekly, Sammi wrote, “While recording these songs, I was consistently motivated by these melodies and lyrics. The power from inside kept pouring out; to inspire others you have to first be inspired. To ignite others then you must first be ignited. When you are that ball of flame, people will naturally see that light and heat from you. Christian faith can be gentle and meek, but it can at the same time be filled with great power.”
In December of 2009, Sammi published her first book titled “Worthy” (Zhide). Many readers wrote back, saying how they’ve received much help and encouragements mentally, which deeply touched her.
“I’ve never thought that ‘Worthy’ would make it to the 14th edition now. Truly, my depression has definitely been until now a deep blessing. Life is good. Never give up!!! God’s power is always there. I will continue to fight and ignite myself for my faith (in God), and others will naturally see that light and strength from your life.”
All of the personal royalties generated from the Mandarin Album of “Faith” will be donated to Taiwan World Vision and Red Cross, she said, in hopes that more children can receive education.
