Film and television tycoon Yang Dengkui passed away on December 31 2012. Yesterday a memorial concert took place. Many artists who he has helped before attended, including Eric Tsang Chi Wai, Dicky Cheung Wai Kin, Ruby Lin (Lam Sum Yu), Ariel Lin (Lam Yi Sun), Yvonne Yung Hung, Jody Chiang Hui and others. Andy Lau Tak Wa sent a floral arrangement. Chang Fei played with his saxophone the song that Yang Dengkui once asked him to play, YESTERDAY ONCE MORE. He described Yang Dengkui as the pillar of show business.
Cheung Wai Kin performed in many Yang Dengkui television series. He performed the DUKE OF MOUNT DEER theme song. Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai) performed the NEW ADEVENTURES OF CHOR LAU HEUNG theme song. Siu Chai said, "Papa Yang was the typical martial art hero. When you needed help, you would brave the storm for you; when everything was fine, he would vanish." Yang Dengkui's son Ken Yang often wiped his tears in the audience.
