Godfrey Gao (高以翔) may be gone but his memory is still alive and well in everyone’s thoughts.
During an early Christmas get-together, a few well-known celebrities decided to honour the late model-actor with an impromptu performance.
Wang Leehom (王力宏) was seen strumming a guitar while singing the iconic song “Hey Jude” by The Beatles. The 43-year-old superstar was accompanied by Taiwanese singer-songwriter Christine Fan (范瑋琪) and Will Pan (潘玮柏). Even Papa Gao (Godfrey’s father) joined in on the number.
We couldn’t help but resonate with the lyrics “Take a sad song and make it better” as a reflection of how Godfrey’s friends and family are coping with his shocking and sudden death a few weeks ago.

It’s been confirmed that Zhejiang Television has cancelled its “Chase Me” reality show after receiving massive backlash from the public. Director Mr Lin Chong recently told the media that the team has been overwhelmed with “grief and remorse” after the incident.
Since the handsome star’s unfortunate death, many fans have been sending origami cranes to pay their respect. Yesterday (Tuesday, 10th December), Godfrey’s management company Jetstar Entertainment announced that they will stop receiving the paper art. Final preparations for his funeral are currently underway at the funeral parlour.
Rest in peace Godfrey ;)
