Entertainment career (2005-Present)[edit]

Poon auditioned for Project SuperStar in April 2005 and was eliminated in the fourth quarter-final, but was back on stage following sufficient public votes in the revival round. She supposedly impressed both the critics and the judges with her on-stage personality and versatility, and then came in second in the Grand Finals of Project Superstar[1] whilst securing a recording deal with Universal Music.

Later, Poon signed a management contract with Yao Chien and released her 2nd album In the Heart of the World in Singapore and Taiwan. Her third album, Smiling Kelly, was released on 22 October 2008 in Taiwan. By the end of 2010, she ended her contract with Yao Chien and signed with Rock Records in the same year, releasing her fourth album Super Kelly on 29 July 2011 in Taiwan and 3 August 2011 in Singapore.

In 2013, Poon hosted her first television show 女人我最大 新加坡, working with Pauline Lan.

Poon moved to Mode Entertainment in Singapore and Cosmos Entertainment in Taiwan in 2014. Her most recent EP Miss Kelly was released in July 2014. Poon was appointed as spokesperson of casual clothing brand dENiZEN in 2015.[2] Her most recent Album Miss Kelly was released in July 2014, consisting of her compositions too. In the same year, Kelly was awarded in Singapore Golden Melody Award and also was Awarded in Global Chinese Music Award. She then also acted in a movie with Tender Huang in 2017. 2015 onwards, Kelly also put her foot on the digital platform, she did covers that went viral. Her best cover was a song from Korean Drama < Descendant of the Sun> ost <Always>, which she sang a Chinese version of it.

Kelly is very positive and is willing to learn at all times. She loves doing music in a team or to co-write. She finds co-writing fun and realises that working in a team often creates surprises.

Personal life[edit]

Poon suggested that she suffers from keloid problems, meaning that she scars easily after a wound heals, "if a mosquito bites me, it takes very long for the bite to heal".[3] Her mother is known to worry about Poon.[4]
