If I speak, will you listen? Life is made up of countless stories, told and untold. While some are too much to put in words, why not put them in music or theatre? In My Story Land Series, a trilogy of animation, music and multi-media works will tell stories that we may all share. In the least intimate space, the deeply hidden memories will become our common stories.

My Story Land Series 1 - Once upon a....Starry Starry Night - A Writable Music Journal~*

As the saying goes, "sometimes we need to let go of what's killing us, even if it's killing us to let go."

It can be heart-breaking to let go of certain objects, persons and feelings. But it is one step to let your heart heal and regain the energy to move on. Through six handwritten letters, singer-songwriter Kellyjackie will bid farewell to her tenderest treasures and return to her humble beginnings in music.

Kellyjackie (KJ)
Creation & Performance

Hong Kong Singer-Songwriter. Graduated from University of Portsmouth holding a Bachelor's Degree in business administration, KJ is currently a singer-songwriter, composer, lyricist, vocal coach, singing competition judge, trilingual MC as well as TV Programme host.

Since entering the music industry in 2005, she has been learning “Speech Level Singing (SLS)” with renowned Hong Kong singer Christine Samson, and recently joined Christine Samson Music & Arts Studio (CSMA) as one of their singing coaches.

KJ’s career took off in 2005 as her original song He dates me to Disneyland was uploaded onto the internet and went viral. Amazed by her talent, many DJs started to talk about her song on the radio. As she came to be recognised, it later opened doors for her to formally be a part of Hong Kong’s music industry and published her first solo album Kellyjackie & Royals. In the same year, she won several music awards, including RTHK Top 10 Golden Song Award and RTHK Top Ten Golden Song Composer Award.

In 2013, KJ further extended her knowledge in the entertainment industry by practising stage and theatre performance with Anthony Wong and Olivia Yan. Later in 2014, she took her interest in martial art and practiced nunchucks with Master Jerry Lau; she then competed in the Hong Kong Wushu Competition and won several gold medals.

As her experience strengthened throughout the years from stage performances, radio, TV, films, musical and short films, she has won her first title as Silver Award — Best Actress by playing the role in short film EMOJI in 2016 as well as Bronze Award — Best Actress in short film ERICA in 2017.
