Hong Kong-born singer and actress CoCo Lee, whose decades-long career included dozens of successful albums, movies, and television shows, died Wednesday, her sisters announced on social media.

Her sisters, Carol and Nancy, said she had been suffering from depression for “a few years” and attempted to take her life on Sunday. She was hospitalized but could not be revived from a coma and died on Wednesday. She was 48 years old.

In their statement, the sisters wrote that this year marks the 30th anniversary of Lee’s singing career, during which she “won countless international acclaims with top-selling songs and has left audiences with an astounding impression of her excellent live performances.”

“CoCo is also known to have worked tirelessly to open up a new world for Chinese singers in the international music scene, and she went all out to shine for the Chinese. We are proud of her!” they wrote.

The post asked for privacy as the family grieves, adding: “Although CoCo stays in the world for a short time, her rays of light will last forever!”

Lee was born in Hong Kong and raised in the United States. During one visit back to Hong Kong after high school, she won first place in a singing contest, which kicked off her music career. She found success in Asia throughout the 1990s, with millions of album sales and music released in English, Mandarin, and Cantonese.
