At age 15, Joey participated in many singing contests, including the Big Echo Karaoke Singing Contest, in which she was given the opportunity to be an artist of Go East Entertainment Co. Ltd.. However, her talent did not win recognition of the company. Go East ended the contract with Joey soon after the song "The First Time I Want to be Drunk," which is the theme song of a movie, was recorded. The song is Joey's only song produced by Go East.
Afterwards, she continued with school while working as a clerk and helped her mother in managing the business of a fashion boutique. She was later introduced to Golden Pony Records Co. Ltd. by an ex-colleague of Go East. Not long after she joined the company, it withdrew its business in Hong Kong. Joey's singing career was once again terminated. A couple of years after, she followed Roman Tam, the godfather of Canto-pop, to learn singing.
Ambassador Joey was selected to be Hong Kong's ambassador of "30 Hour Famine", which is organized by the World Vision. She visited Kenya in March 2007, and shared many of her thoughts about this trip on her blog and on radio interviews.
Joey released her 5th Mandarin album titled "Little" on 5 July. The title track was produced by Jay Chou. The album has received tremendous success, being the most selling mandarin album Joey has ever released.
