Faye Wong net worth: Faye Wong was born in Beijing, China, and began singing while she was in elementary school. Her mother did not approve of her singing, so her school hid her performances from her parents. She secretly recorded six cover records during high school, and after that moved to Hong Kong to live with her dad after graduation. She later signed a recording contract in Hong Kong, and released one semi-successful album. Two more albums followed, but they were ill received. She relocated to the United States, but ended up returning to Hong Kong, where she signed with a new agent, restructured her image, and released a brand new album. It fared better. She’s since released 15 more albums, many of which set sales records in Asia. She also launched a successful acting career, and has appeared in such jobs as “Chungking Express” and “Chinese Odyssey 2002. After taking a short hiatus, she began touring again in 2010.
