#SPOTTED: SAMMY SUM IN TORONTO FOR MISS CHINESE TORONTO 2017
An annual fixture within the Chinese-Canadian community, the Miss Chinese Toronto Pagaent took place last night at Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The Winner of the Competition goes on to complete in the Miss Chinese International Pageant, broadcast on Hong Kong’s premier Network, TVB. Several Finalists in the past have gone on to use the Pageant as a springboard to successful careers in Asian Television and Cinema.
This year’s Special Guest was Sammy Sum, who has risen to prominence as an Actor, Singer and Songwriter in recent years. He actually immigrated to Montreal from Hong Kong as a child before launching a prominent career in Asia. Sum in addition to making appearances for Canada’s top Chinese Television Station Fairchild, he also busked amidst the bustle of Chinatown yesterday.
We were lucky enough to meet the star who was en route back to Hong Kong after a musical performance at last night’s Pageant. Learn more about Miss Chinese Toronto here. We are proud of our friend Gloria Li, last year’s winner who handed her tiara to this year’s Victress Tiffany Choi.
