Stephy Tang is a Cantopop singer and actress. She was formerly a member of the pop group Cookies.
Tang graduated from the Buddhist Sum Heung Lam Memorial College and the Department of Fashion Design at IVE. In 2002, she joined Cookies, a music group in Hong Kong, and became the lead singer. She sang with Alex Fong in 「好心好報」, 「好好戀愛」, 「十分．愛(合唱版)」 (which won a Jade Solid Gold Award for the best duet in 2006),「我的最愛」and [重愛](Mandarin cover of 我的最愛) with whom many rumors about their relationship have been reported by the media. She was featured on Beautiful Cooking, a TV program on cooking on TVB. She is able to speak English, Cantonese, and Mandarin.
Stephy started her singing career in the band Cookies. The main style of music from Cookies was teen pop. When Stephy started her solo singing career her record company, Gold Label (now Gold Typhoon), wanted a change to a more grown-up look and style. Some songs on her first album, Colouring Stephy, had a more mature and soft jazz influence, then her previous music in Cookies. Generally the album Coloring Stephy was perceived greatly and was popular. The album was certified Gold by IFPI Hong Kong.
Her second solo album was Fantasy. The album had a total of five editions. One was a deluxe edition which contains a DVD featuring her music videos from this album. The only difference of the other four was the cover of the album. The color of the four covers were red, yellow, blue and green which were four different themes for photo shoots.
Her third album is Dating Stephy, released on February 14th 2007. The album also features different covers and a special edition was released three months later of the original release. The album also sold well as her previous two. There was no official announcement of the certification as Gold Label Entertainment Ltd and EMI Music Hong Kong did not participate in IFPI Hong Kong. But the newspapers announced that Dating Stephy has sold over 30,000 in one month and it was at least Gold certified.
Her fourth album is titled Stephilosophy. Some songs from this album were included in her recent concert.
In 2007 , she performed at the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Charity Gala at Vancouver with many other artists.
Stephy performed her first headline solo concert, called Stephy, See Thru Live 2007. It was held December 7-9, 2007 at the newly built Star Hall in Hong Kong. A live album was released featuring songs performed at this concert.
She also did a mandarin version of "Breaking Free" from High School Musical with Anson Wu.
She is often made fun of by the media for her performance of Lightbulb (電燈膽), due to the multiple off tunes she sang, in different performances of the same song.
