Biography
 
  Married to Wong Chiu-Miu (Wong Chiu-Mo)
She may have sung Cantonese opera as well as any Hong Kong diva, but Chow Kwun-ling was 100 per cent American. Born in about 1922 and raised in California, Chow learned opera from an early age and performed in the Chinatowns of San Francisco and other west coast communities...Chow and Wong moved back to California in the late 1950s, and went into the restaurant business. A scandal erupted when opera star Ho Fei-fan toured America with his troupe and, invited by his former colleagues to stay at their home, became romantically involved with Chow. She divorced her husband and temporarily returned to Hong Kong. (Paul Fonoroff article)
