She also made a contribution to the music industry by appearing at concerts and events around the world, such as the 2010 Shanghai World Expo. Lee enjoyed success throughout her career thanks to her talent and perseverance.
Despite experiencing vocal difficulties as a result of bronchitis in 2014, Coco Lee took part in the fourth season of the Chinese reality series “I Am A Singer” in 2016. She surmounted these obstacles though, winning the competition and becoming only the second non-mainland Chinese vocalist to do so.
Coco Lee was involved in acting, and it has been very profitable. Her financial wealth has been strengthened by her participation in films, television shows, and endorsement deals. The silver screen has become another avenue for her to showcase her talents and rake in the big bucks.

These endorsement contracts not only increase her income but also strengthen her position as a fashion influencer and symbol. Lee was the first asian brand ambassador for the brand Chanel and met negative feedback from Chanel’s loyal fans in Hong Kong.
