A Chinese popular music legend, Rebecca Pan was born in Shanghai and came to Hong Kong in 1949. Recording songs in English and Mandarin from 1959 to 1975, she has performed all over the world; she was one of the first Chinese singers to perform in the USA. She signed with EMI in London in 1964 and released her first EP of Mandarin songs, "Rendez-vous on the Bridge". She went on to establish her own company and released through major labels a great number of songs which became smash hits throughout East Asia, such as "My Hong Kong" in 1965 and "Didn't We?" in 1970. She recorded her last album "A Christmas Carol" in 1975. Her second career as an actress began when she produced and appeared in the stage musical drama Madame White Snake in 1972. Ann Hui asked her to appear in her film Starry is the Night (1988), which led to an appearance in Clarence Fok's The Greatest Lover later the same year. She has since been seen in Wong Kar-Wai's Days of Being Wild and Hou Hsiao-Hsien's Flowers of Shanghai.
