  • Today we are giving an honorary degree to Eason Chan. *crowd applauds*

  • I invite Eason Chan to stand and for Dr Heather Forland to introduce him.

  • Eason Chan by the authority vested in me as Vice Chancellor of Kingston University, it

  • gives me great pleasure to confer on you the degree of Doctor of Arts, honoris causa, for

  • your contribution to music and culture. Thank you.*applause*

  • Ladies and gentlemen, I am extremely nervous as you can see...but at the same time I am

  • extremely honoured and privileged to be here to receive such an honour.

  • When I knew that I was recognised by Kingston University of being a doctor in music, I had

  • doubts because I receive a lot of awards, actually more than I deserve I think.

  • You think; 'what's the meaning of this? 'and success...'am I successful?'...I think I'm

  • still learning, I'm still striving to what success is. To me, success is having a very

  • kind and loving heart and I think that's the best, nothing beats that when you do anything.

  • *applause* What I learnt from the UK is this as well

  • *sings*' Always look on the bright side of life (whistles the melody)' I'm in a terribly

  • good mood today! Okay, you may not understand it...I believe

  • music is a universal language. *Sings Odyssey* Thank you

  • very much.

Today we are giving an honorary degree to Eason Chan. *crowd applauds*
