Ann Mui, her elder sister was also a singer. All the four children were raised in a single parent family.
She dropped out of school at the age of 13. After that Mui sang at nightclub and bars for several years.
In 1982, Mui’s big break came after she defeated 3,000 contestants in the New Talent Singing Competition and win first prize.
However, Mui’s fame did not bring happiness. The singer felt lonely under the pressures of show business and had to continue working hard to support her family.

In 2003, Mui career came to a halt when the singer announced that she had cervical cancer, and died at the age of 40. According to some reports, the singer died of lung failure due to the drug's side effects Mui was taking to fight the cancer.
According to Mui, many people asked her which one she want to be: an eminent star or a happy ordinary person. The singer then said “if I could, I would choose an ordinary but happy person”.
In order to raise funds for the lawsuit, the old woman planned to release a book about Anita's private life. The 80-year-old revealed that amongst all Anita's boyfriends, she loved Andy lau the most.
