Corporate Bits | William So and Edmond Leung join forces in ‘So Man Show’

Popular Hong Kong singers William So and Edmond Leung will bring their “So Man Show” to The Venetian Macao’s Cotai Arena on April 21.

While both artists have worked in the entertainment industry for many years and are bandmates in the supergroup “Band Of Brothers”, this is the first time they will perform as a duo at Cotai Arena.

William So, nicknamed the “Love Song Prince”, launched his music career after winning second place in a major singing competition in 1985 and released his first album in 1989. He appeared in popular TV series “Healing Hands”, and also sang its theme song. His later track “Kiss More, Hurt More”, led to his first solo Hong Kong concert and his Mandarin song “Man Shouldn’t Let Woman Cry” was a big hit in Hong Kong and Taiwan. He has gone on to release more than 20 albums and appeared in dozens of TV series, variety shows and films.

Edmond Leung was the first male singer to receive both Ultimate Top 10 Songs Award and Ultimate Album at the Commercial Radio Hong Kong Ultimate Song Chart Awards. Some of his hits include “The Man in Closet”, “Get Lost/Cheating” (with Miriam Yeung), “Lingering Games” and “Three Broken Hearts”.

Tickets are now on sale at all Cotai Ticketing box offices.

BNU donates MOP750,000 to the university of macau

Banco Nacional Ultramarino (BNU) donated MOP 750,000 to the University of Macau (UM). Yonghua Song, UM Rector, and Pedro Cardoso, Chief Executive Officer of BNU, officiated at the cheque presentation ceremony.

In a statement issued yesterday by the bank, it is stressed that the University of Macau “is the leading university in Macau’s higher education sector, with about 1,500 staff members, 10,000 students and over 30,000 alumni.”

Thanks to the support of cardholders by using the BNU University of Macau Visa Card since 2013, BNU has already donated MOP3.75 million to the UM. The amount donated annually is based on the percentage from the retail spending of the affinity card.

“The introduction of this affinity card serves as a good example of collaboration between the financial sector and a non-profit organization, for the common good of the local community,” BNU stated.
