Legendary actor and singer Bowie Wu finally held his delayed concert on Nov 12 at the Hong Kong Coliseum. The concert, to commemorate his 90th birthday, was scheduled for September, but the Hong Kong actor was down with coronavirus and had to postpone.

At the concert, Wu was surprised with the appearances of his two famous godsons – singer Jacky Cheung and actor Nick Cheung. Both godsons took the stage to sing with Wu. However, it was Jacky's time on stage that moved Wu to tears.

The 61-year-old singer – the final guest of the evening – came on stage when Wu was singing Jacky's hit Love Is Eternal.

Surprised - and touched - to see Jacky, Wu started to cry and had difficulty continuing to sing. Luckily the Heavenly King was on hand to help finish the number. After their duet, Jacky then dropped on his knees to kowtow to Wu.

"It's been very long since I knelt before someone, other than my wife. I wish you a Happy Birthday, and hope that you'll stay healthy and live a long life," the singer said, as quoted by Hong Kong media.

Wu started his acting career in the 1950s and has appeared in many Hong Kong movies including The Haunted Cop Shop, which also featured Jacky.

In an interview earlier this year, the sprightly Wu attributed his good health to walking.

"I walk every day and do calisthenics. I walk for at least an hour or two a day. Sometimes I try to sing as I walk, shake my hands and legs, and often move my body and walk to promote blood circulation," said Wu, adding that he picked up this habit since he was 21.
