Jill M. Vidal, often referred to as Wei Si or simply as Jill, is a Hong Kong-based female singer. Vidal is of Korean and Filipino ethnicity with British nationality.[1] Her twin sister Janice Vidal is also a singer in Hong Kong.


Vidal is of mixed parentage with a Filipino father, Joey Vidal,[2] who has ancestry in Cebu, Philippines, and a mother of Korean descent from Seoul, Korea.

Vidal is also known by her Chinese name Wei Si. She was educated up to secondary school, and speaks English and basic Cantonese.

She gained prominence with campaigns in Hong Kong aimed at stopping youngsters from using drugs.[3] She has since converted to Christianity following an incident in Japan which resulted in her undergoing rehab.[4] She has released a book titled 'REBORN', which details her experiences at the rehab detention centre and recounts how her new-found faith has changed her into the positive person she is today. She is now involved with sponsoring children in need through World Vision and is hoping to set up care centres and schools for children in Cambodia, India, and Africa.

Jill has raised her voice to bring attention to the plight of millions of people who suffer from malaria every day in Asia and around the world. Joining with the Roll Back Malaria Partnership (RBM), an initiative founded in 1998 by UNICEF, WHO, UNDP, and the World Bank, which has since become the global public-private partnership co-ordinating the global fight against the disease, Jill, along with her sister Janice, have urged greater regional investment in the global fight against malaria.

Music career[edit]

By the end of 2005, Vidal entered into a contract with East Asia Record Production, who also signed her sister. She released her first song, Lonely, in December 2005.

Vidal released her debut album Hit Me, in 2006. In July 2006, her song Funny Jealousy became her first number 1 song in the Jade Solid Gold chart.

She made her film debut in the musical film A Melody Looking and acted as Jill, the twin sister of Janice in the film directed by Leon Lai. It was released on DVD in December 2006. Being celebrity role models, Vidal and Kelvin Kwan took part in anti-drug promotions in 2006 and 2008.[5]

She is currently signed to Warner Music HK.
