Hsiao Huang-Chi (Chinese: 蕭煌奇; Hanyu Pinyin: Xiāo huáng qí; Tongyong Pinyin: Hsiāo huáng chí; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Siau Hông-kî, born September 22, 1976 in Banqiao, Taiwan), is a blind Taiwanese Hokkien pop and Mandopop artist and a former judoka (2nd dan black belt) that represented Taiwan in FESPIC Games in Beijing in 1994 where he got bronze and got seventh in 1996 Atlanta Paralympics. But he received news from his older brother that their grandmother died during competition, which led to Hsiao writing "The words of my grandmother" as a tribute to her. Hsiao Huang-Chi emerged in the Hokkien pop scene after winning the Best Hokkien pop male artist 2008 award in the Golden Melody Awards. Since then, he also won best songwriter and best album, but only in Hokkien pop, but not Mandopop.
Hsiao had congenital cataracts which led him to be blind at birth, which was partially cured by surgery when he was 4. However his vision gradually deteriorated, and he completely lost his eyesight at age 15, it was revealed to be during a pickup game of basketball in high school before he attempted to box out for a rebound.
Hsiao had also gained a license to practice as a therapeutic masseuse in high school. In 2012, he opened a massage parlour in Taipei, that also employs blind or deaf people.
