Template:Infobox Chinese-language singer and actor Ronald Cheng Chung-Kei is a Hong Kong cantopop singer and movie actor.

BiographyEdit

Originally intending to work behind the scenes as a composer and record producer, Cheng did odd jobs at his father (Director of EMI Asia)’s company EMI— which included doing back-up vocals for the likes of Alan Tam and Priscilla Chan — during summers as a youth. The lessons were apparently effective, as producers started taking notice of Cheng’s voice and he was signed to a recording contract soon thereafter. Cheng first shot to popularity in Taiwan before returning home and enjoying some success in Hong Kong. However, his singing career went into a lull from 2000 to 2003 due to the infamous “air rage incident” and has only recently rebounded.

Cheng returned to the Cantopop market in 2003, however success for him did not arrive until 2005, where his signature song "無賴" (Rascal) was voted one of the Top 10 songs at various music award shows, notably TVB's Jade Solid Gold, where it was voted the most popular song of 2005.[1]

MarriageEdit

Ronald Cheng started his love relationship with Charlene Choi, a popular Hong Kong female singer and actress, in 2004, after starring as lovers in the film Hidden Heroes. In 2010, while Choi announced ending the relationship with Cheng, the press revealed that they had registered their marriage in Los Angeles, United States in 2006.[2][3] Both Cheng and Choi recognized the marriage, but decided to divorce.[4]
