George Lam Chi Cheung (born 12 October 1947), also known professionally by his surname Lam, is a Hong Kong-based veteran Cantopop singer and actor of Xinhui area origin. Lam spent a number of years overseas before returning to Hong Kong to launch his career.

Lam was the lead singer for a band called "Jade" until he went solo with his first English album "Lam" in 1976. His first Cantonese album, having the same name, was also released in the same year. He also recorded two versions of the Billy Joel song "Uptown Girl" in Cantonese. Lam has remained popular in Hong Kong for three decades. He writes a number of his own songs; some of them have also been recorded by other singers including Teresa Carpio, with whom he recorded an album and has given joint concerts, most recently in 2007.

In addition to his singing career, Lam has also acted in many films, making his film debut in Luckies Trio in 1978. Possibly his most memorable role was as a Japanese journalist in Boat People (1982), directed by Ann Hui.


Lam studied at the Diocesan Boys' School in Kowloon, Hong Kong, a predominantly English-language boys school, in which he chose to study French rather than Chinese. He lived in England, where he studied at Dover College in Dover, Kent, and the United States (in Oakland, California) for many years before returning to Hong Kong.

Lam first married in 1980 and has a son (Alex Lam Tak Shun, who is also a singer) and a daughter; they divorced in 1994. In 1996, he married singer and actress Sally Yeh, before they dated for many years, while Lam was still in his first marriage.
