On March 10, 2017, Christian celebrities, including Vivian Chow and Jade Kwan, shared the message of the Gospel and their change in an evening charity concert entitled "God's Love to Hong Kong" held in the Hong Kong Cultural Centre.
The next day, the pop star Vivian Chow shared on the Chinese social media platform Weibo this message, "Thanks very much for the invitation from the Hong Kong Gospel Festival 2017. It was a blessing for brothers and sisters and me to serve with our different gifts. I also feel gratitude for the audiences' support, that strengthened the ministry team consisting of more than 500 people behind (the concert)."
Then she mentioned her tremendous change her Christian faith has brought to her.
The singer claimed that she thought that demonstrating one's superiority was the way of survival before following Jesus in 2009. After her conversion, she learned to be humble.
"Humility teaches us to put yourself down, as the Bible says, '... rather, in humility value others above yourself (Philippians 2:3).' When we move the focus from ourselves to the outside, our eyes will be open. At the same time, will we see many of our shortcomings and restrictions and vulnerabilities of other people. I find that it's quite happy when I have learnt not to struggle; but, submitted my life to God. I no longer need to set up the worldly principle as my life indicator or do things regarding what others think. Since I have a clear belief, I know how to make choices and go after everything in my life. Above all, I have found the source of inner peace and joy, as well as faith and personal power which I can't compare with. These are God's grace which He prepares for every one of us. We can get it freely without hard discipline. The problem lies in when we're ready to receive it."
Besides her message, Vivian sang an English gospel song named "A Love Like This" which was published over two years ago in the concert. She said that it was written by her and it tells the blessing of God's presence with us. She added on Weibo, "I hope that you can feel His precious love, hope and peace from Him. This song is also for friends who are in trouble and an abyss of suffering to comfort and encourage them."
