To celebrate his 30th year in the entertainment business, singer Louie Castro will be performing two concerts at the end of October. Castro wanted to express thanks to his fans but needed help - so he turned to former manager, Hong Kong entertainment business veteran Anders Nelsson, for help.

'He sent me all the things he wanted to say in e-mail and I turned it into a song,' explains Nelsson. The track, Thank You: Xie Xie Ni, will be performed by Castro at the end of his concert.

'The track's got a little My Way feel to it,' he says, referring to the Frank Sinatra song. 'It sounds like 70s pop, which is what's been back in music recently.'

Nelsson will be in attendance at the concerts at the Cultural Centre on October 30 and 31 so he can witness 'the birth of his baby' but won't be getting on the stage.
