In 2008, Corinna was the guest artist who sang both the Australian and New Zealand National Anthems at the Bledisloe Cup Rugby Game between Australia and New Zealand which was hosted by Hong Kong.

In August 2013, she became a contestant for TVB singing contest for actors: The Voice of the Stars (zh:星夢傳奇) and placed third.
