Dick Lee is one of the most well-known musical icons in Singapore. He is multi-talented, as he can sings, dance, compose and even write plays.
 
In 1989, he released the album “The Mad Chinaman” which shot him into musical prominence not only in Singapore but also in Asia. He also staged many popular musicals, including “Beauty World” in 1988 and “Fried Rice Paradise” in 1991.
 
Dick Lee was also the Creative Director for a number of National Day Parades, including our SG50 National Day Parade in 2015.
 
For this coming concert to celebrate his 60th birthday, audiences will be brought through Dick Lee’s musical life journey as he shares his trials and jubilations through songs and stories to inspire the next generation of young talents.

It will be a story over four decades, from his teenage years when he took part in the Rediffusion Talentime, his first album ‘Life Story’ in 1974, his breaking into the Japan market with the platinum album ‘The Mad Chinaman’, his collaboration with Hong Kong artistes such as Sandy Lam and Jackie Cheung, his foray into musicals like ‘Beauty World’ and ‘Nagraland’, up till the modern era of unique Singapore songs, like ‘Home’ and ‘Our Singapore’. 

Summing up by  Dick Lee, “I’m very excited to celebrate my 60th birthday with this very special concert. I feel blessed to still be making music after so long, and am looking forward to sharing my songs and stories with everyone, to dance down memory lane with my generation, and inspire the next.”
