Dick is the first ambassador of this new charity to raise funds for eye research. Singapore has a very high percentage of people with myopia, which can lead to other conditions that can cause blindness.
Dick himself almost went blind at 21, when he suffered from torn and detached retinas in both eyes, but luckily his eyesight was saved in time. That’s why he has come on board to help VisionSave reach out to the public and appeal to their kindness for donations.
You can donate directly from their website: www.visionsave.sg/donate

Dick will make a special appearance at The Eye Ball, a fundraiser for VisionSave on November 19th 2016 at the St Regis hotel. The evening, specially programmed by Dick, will revolve around an Op-Art 1960s theme, so get your tickets from: www.visionsave.sg.
After a fulfilling 44-year career, Dick finally gets to write and direct his first movie, Wonder Boy.
This coming-of-age story is based on Dick’s own experiences in the early 1970s, when becoming a singer-songwriter was an impossible dream. Told over a two-year period, we see how Dick transforms himself from an awkward geeky boy named Richard, to the musician we now know as Dick Lee, via a tumultuous journey that ends with the release of his first album, Life Story, in 1974.
Dick is very excited to cast hot young talent Benjamin Kheng (of The Sam Willows) to portray Dick, alongside rising Mediacorp star Julie Tan, and stage actor Zach Ibrahim, in this multi-lingual drama.
Naturally the film will feature lots of music, including hits from the 70s, as well as Dick’s early compositions.
The movie will be shot in Penang and will be released in mid-2017.
Dick celebrates his 60th birthday with a special concert at the Star Performing Arts Centre on August 19th 2016.
Make sure you catch this show, that’s the first in the series that continues 2015’s Sing50 extravaganza which celebrates Singapore music. Dick is extremely honoured to be chosen as the first performer in this series, called Icons.
With a theme of Singapore identity, Dick will share his journey on his search for his identity through his music, accompanied by very special guests including Shigga Shay and Kit Chan.
