Template:Infobox Chinese-language singer and actor Stephy Tang is a Cantopop singer and actress. She was formerly the lead singer of the pop group Cookies.
Tang graduated from the Buddhist Sum Heung Lam Memorial College and the Department of Fashion Design at IVE. In 2002, she joined Cookies, a music group in Hong Kong, and became the lead singer. She sang with Alex Fong in 「好心好報」, 「好好戀愛」, 「十分．愛(合唱版)」 (which won a Jade Solid Gold Award for the best duet in 2006),「我的最愛」,「重愛」 and 「七年」, with whom many rumors about their relationship have been reported by the media. She was featured on Beautiful Cooking, a TV program on cooking on TVB. She is able to speak English, Cantonese, and Mandarin.
Stephy started her singing career in the band Cookies. The main style of music from Cookies was teen pop. When Stephy started her solo singing career, her record company, EMI, wanted a change to a more grown-up look and style. Some songs on her first album, Coloring Stephy, had a more mature and soft jazz influence than her previous music in Cookies. Generally, the album was widely heard and was popular, and it was certified Gold by IFPI Hong Kong.
Her second solo album was Fantasy. The album had a total of five editions. One was a deluxe edition which contains a DVD featuring her music videos from this album. The only difference between the other four was the color themes of the album covers: red, yellow, blue, and green, which were four different themes for photo shoots.
Her third album is Dating Stephy. This album also features different covers, and a special edition was released three months after the original release. The album also sold as well as her previous two. There was no official announcement of the certification, as Gold Label Entertainment Ltd and EMI Music Hong Kong did not participate in IFPI Hong Kong. However, the newspapers announced that Dating Stephy has sold over 30,000 in one month, and it was at least Gold certified.
Her latest album is titled Stephilosophy. Some songs from this album were included in her recent concert.
Stephy performed her first headline solo concert, called Stephy, See Thru Live 2007. It was held December 7-9, 2007 at the newly built Star Hall in Hong Kong. A live album was released featuring songs performed at this concert.
Stephy released her new album The Red Album in November 2008. Some tracks in this album, such as "女兒紅", have led to media attention on the improvement in Stephy's voice, and no longer many people referred to her as 走音王 (Queen of Offkey singing).
In July 2009, Stephy published her first romance novel, 陪著我走. The book takes the form of a diary about a girl who has recently broken up with her lover. She goes on a cruise and writes about the things she sees and does. This book also includes 100+ pages of photos, making it a photo book as well. However, shortly after its release, many people realized that the book contained many incorrect words (they were correct phonetically, but not the correct Chinese character).
Stephy has become the first female artist (in Hong Kong) to have had H1N1/swine flu (she had previously attended a charity event for the Taiwan flood), causing a rush of fear that the disease might spread. Thankfully, no one caught it from her.
In December 2009, Stephy released her collection of "Greatest Hits" plus "New Songs" songs in a 2CD+ DVD Collection called 'Music Cafe' which includes four new songs, including 陪著我走 (Running alongside me) which served as the same name as her novel. The collectors edition comes with a mousepad with Stephy's face which is available in two designs.
