. . . Samuel Tai . . .

Tai was born in Hong Kong and spent his childhood on Shanghai Street in Mongkok.[citation needed] He was educated at Min Guang College and Wellington English secondary school. He admires Bruce Lee and has studied “Yong Chun” from Luo Yao for many years. While practicing Taekwondo he is qualified with First-Degree Black Belt. Due to an injury he had to stay at home to rest. During that time, his father bought a guitar to let him pass the time. Ever since then he becomes attached with the music.

Tai’s father Tai Li-ren, is a Chinese medicine practitioner. Influenced by his father, Samuel Tai also intended to become a doctor. However, he couldn’t continue his study at the Faculty of Medicine of HKU due to poor grades, so he went to the Kaohsiung Medical College in Taiwan for his medical study in 1985. He sang in the café and pub weekly as a part-time job to support his study. Though it was hard, he continued with it.

After graduation, Tai got a medical technician[1] license in Hong Kong. But his heart has never stopped for longing for music. In 1988, Tai participated in a Pop music contest in Taiwan and won the 5th prize. After that, he signed a contract with UFO Records for 2 years. But it was not so successful. In 1993, he wrote the song 999 Roses (九百九拾九朵玫瑰),[1] which turned out to be a huge success and big hit. His most popular songs include: 999 Roses(九百九拾九朵玫瑰), Thousand origami cranes (千纸鹤), 1001 Nights (一千零一夜) and Let you listen to my heart (心要让你听见), and others.

Tai retreated behind the scenes for a while and is actively involved in church work. In recent years he is very active on stage in mainland China. His new album, In the Beginning was released on 31 August 2012.
