After making waves with her acting projects, Quan Yi Fong’s daughter Eleanor Lee adds another feather to her hat with the release of her first single, That Girl, today. In interviews with Chinese media, Eleanor shared that the song talks about the experiences from her childhood and also the journey of chasing her dreams.
Eleanor, who is currently studying at the Beijing Film Academy since July this year, also mentioned that its lyrics also reflected her thoughts about being independent as she lives abroad, shuttling between Shanghai, Beijing and Taiwan for work and school.
The multi-talented 18-year-old who plays the guitar and piano has received a lot of praise from notable people in the music industry, one of them being Hong Kong-based American producer Khalil Fong, who is the producer of 'That Girl.'
The award-winning singer songwriter described Eleanor as a pleasant, easy going girl who worked very hard during their recording sessions.
“Even though writing and singing was something new to her, she was not daunted by the challenges presented, but instead aimed to do her best and to work even harder,” he said.
He also went on to commend her passion in music and song-waiting talents after she “played a few self-composed songs” to him on his guitar.

In her social media posts promoting her first single, Eleanor also did not forget to thank her fans for supporting her all this while and told them to be excited for her future projects.
Eleanor entered the showbiz industry at the age of 15 in 2014 and made a name for herself after appearing in Apple China’s micro-movie, The Old Record. She is currently acting opposite Hong Kong singer-actor Leon Lai in the upcoming Chinese drama, Overseas Security Officer.
