Leslie Cheung's former manager, Florence Chan, disclosed the late Hong Kong superstar's final message to his fans at the Tenth Anniversary Memorial Concert of his passing held in Hong Kong on March 31, saying Cheung wanted to "sleep well."

At the opening of the concert, Chan said in a previously recorded message, "On the day of April 1, 2003, the thunder-like sound broke many people's hearts, but at that time -- when I didn't realize what had happened -- I just felt my body become light and my soul flying high, and a voice told me, 'I can sleep sound and comfortably'."

She said she simply locked this uncanny moment away in her heart, "I haven't told this to anyone in ten years, until one day I heard the song 'To A Friend' by Jacky Cheung, and decided to share this message because the song expressed my feelings."

After the song was played, Chan continued, "You go and enjoy your freedom; we will miss you forever."

Chan accepted interviews in the days leading up to the concert, in which she recalled the events of that fateful day ten years ago, "I was supposed to have a meal with Leslie that day. But before we met, Leslie called me on the phone and he said 'I want to take this chance to observe Hong Kong carefully'."
