Wilfred Lau Ho-Lung is a Hong Kong singer and actor. He is also known as "師兄" (C-Hing) in the entertainment industry. He was the winner of the 16th annual New Talent Singing Awards International Finals in 1997. Many have made comparisons to his voice to the voice of Eason Chan.

Wilfred attended St. Joseph's Primary School (聖若瑟小學) for his primary education. Information about his secondary education is unknown. As a child, he had always wanted to become a singer, but his teacher made him give up his dream. At age 21, after seeing the concerts of Anita Mui and Andy Hui, he finally had enough courage to enter the 1997 New Talent Singing Awards International Finals where he won first place (the Gold award), the Best Performance Award (最佳演繹大獎), and the Best Performance Art Potential Award (最具演藝潛質獎).

Career[edit]

As the winner, Wilfred was signed to Capital Artists. His first job in Capital Artists was to appear as a guest in TVB's version of Edmond Leung's music video for the song 好朋友 (Good Friend). In the following 4 years, he hosted television shows on TVB. The company did not arrange Wilfred to record albums or songs.

In 2001, Capital Artists withdrew its business in Hong Kong. Wilfred searched for other record companies but most of them turned him down. With the help from Eddie Ng who gave him the song "舊人" to save him time from finding and recording a demo, and after three years of searching, Go East Entertainment Co. Ltd, a subsidiary of Universal Music Group, signed him and arranged for him to record his debut album Start Up, which was released in 2004. His contract with Go East ended in October 2006. He is now signed to East Asia Music.
