Taiwan celebrities in tears at Alien Huang’s emotional tribute concert

TAIPEI (The China Post) — Alien Huang’s (黃鴻升) tribute concert, “The Most Romantic Concert on Earth” (地球上最浪漫的演唱會), featured 31 performance groups on Tuesday who sang 21 songs in memory of the beloved Taiwanese actor-singer.

The concert, hosted by Jacky Wu (吳宗憲) and KID at Legacy Taipei, left many celebrities and people in the audience in tears.  

Rainie Yang (楊丞琳), Huang’s childhood sweetheart sang the tear-jerker song “I Can Only Miss You” (只能想念你), expressing their journey from youth to the present day.  

“He was a man who deserves to be missed forever, and that feeling will stay with us forever!” she said about Alien who passed away on Sept. 16.

Yang recalled her relationship with Huang back in high school and remembered how he happened to be a guest at her concert on the same day two years ago.  

“I didn’t think I would return the favor this way, I didn’t even know where he was.”  

As one of the performers, Jam Hsiao (蕭敬騰) said that Hung was his senior in high school, even though they were not familiar with each other at that time. 

“I can’t say I’m his friend, but he helped me a lot in my career. No matter what, I have to sing for him!” added Hsiao who performed his song “Do you know?” 

Also, Alan Ko (柯有倫) and Bobby Dou (竇智孔) performed “Carry On” (扛得住) in duo — Alien’s posthumous song. 

Ko said that he and Huang had been friends for a long time and that they had been into street fashion since then. 

Also, the two made movies and appeared on TV shows together, Ko recalled. 

He praised Huang for being an all-round entertainer, whether he was a host, singer, or actor, he was outstanding in all aspects.

The concert ended with the tribute song “How Far Is Heaven: My Dearest Alien” (天堂有多遠?) performed by Jacky Wu, KID, Kunda Hsieh (謝坤達), Han Dian Chen (陳漢典), Tuo Zong Kang (庹宗康), Chang Li-Tung (張立東), Alan Ko and Bobby Dou.
