Vincy Chan (born 16 October 1982) is a Hong Kong cantopop singer. Before the handover of 1997 when Hong Kong was returned from Great Britain to China, her family left Hong Kong and went to Singapore when she was a child. She was signed by Emperor Entertainment Group, and debuted with the album Vincy on 27 July 2006.

She attended the Dunman High School in Singapore. Chan was amongst the top 24 contestants in Project Superstar, a Singaporean singing competition held in June 2005 after graduating from Nanyang Technological University. She was also the runner-up and won the award "Most Popular Image" in Emperor Entertainment Group's New Talent Singing Awards in 2005. Later on, she became more well-known amongst the Hong Kong public when her song 'My Feelings' (Chinese: 感應), a Cantonese rendition of Freya Lin's '一個人生活', debuted.

Chan released the studio album "Flowers Without Snow" (Chinese: 花無雪) in February, 2007, in which a song of eponymous title is the Cantonese version of Mika Nakashima's Yuki no Hana.

In 2007, she performed at the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Charity Gala in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada with various artists. Chan's latest album, released October 15, 2007, was titled "Close To You", which included a cover version of The Carpenters' (They Long to Be) Close to You.

After the "Close To You" tour ended at the beginning of 2008, Vincy released her third and self-titled album on June 4, 2008. This album also marks her first MandoPop album since her only previous 2 albums featured Cantonese pop.

In 2008, Vincy appeared in both New Talent Toronto (June 21) and New Talent Calgary (June 22) in Canada. At both occasions, Vincy performed her new hit mandarin song "It's Very Tiring to Like a Person" and several other hits.
