鄺麗虹 Rita Kwong

1974年中,一位還在唸中學的十六歲香港少女鄺麗虹Rita Kwong,參加了由當時星報(The Star)機構舉辦的歌唱大賽,並在比賽中獲得獎項殊榮。約年半後的1976年初,她簽約予好市唱片公司(House Records) ,成為好市旗下歌手。差不多同時期間,麗的電視(RTV)亦邀請她加盟,在「星期一晚」節目中亮相獻歌及作為其中之一的節目主持人,而她為好市公司灌錄的首張、也是迄今唯一的個人LP專集《Let Me Love You》,遂藉此乘勢推出。

  

Let Me Love You        (1976/PHLP 761)


唱片封套背面,載上了一段由鄺麗虹Rita Kwong以英語摘寫的自我介紹文章...

And so I came to pass, borne by the wind, cradled by the ocean spray and inspired by the colours of the rainbow to discover time and space in the sounds of the wild and beautiful.

In retracing the misty paths of my life, I grew up with a desire to share with the world my songs, my heart and myself. It wasn’t until two years ago that I stood unsteadily with the rhythm of life pounding in oneness with my audience, under the blazing spotlights of T.V. cameras, over the thundering sound of applause at The Star Singing Competition. My singing career had been launched one public appearance followed another.

And just six months ago the Production House made one of my beautiful dreams came true. They offered me a recording contract. And here I am.

The recording sessions weren’t easy. It was hard for me and all the others involved. I could not just burst into song. No way. Instead one agonizing rehearsal followed another. Often I was on the verge of collapsing. But every single moment was worth it when compared with the ecstasy of seeing my very own disc complete, of hearing my heart dance its way through each groove.

My sincere gratitude to Tony, Terry, Young and all the others who lifted me up when I was down, who make it possible for me to soar again like a bird. And now I dream that as you listen to my wind songs, Your heart will fly wing to wing with mine. Happy flying.

"好事成雙  (鄺麗虹.陳欣健合唱)"試聽版﹕




成雙,好事成雙,
佳偶成雙,苦樂同當也為愛。
相愛,盼望情永在,
甘苦也相依,情或與也願同在。

如海,親情如海,
養育培栽,舐犢情深也為愛。

真愛,會盡除障礙,
親恩似春暉,溫暖內心散着愛。

一家快樂相處,永遠無障礙,
同堂兩代花心開,願和睦永在。

情恩,深如海,
心長開,好事成雙我哋愛。

真愛,至誠以待,
一家永相好,早晚話聲我哋愛。

唔唔...早晚話聲我哋愛。
