Mourners filled two nearby basketball courts across the street from the Hong Kong Funeral Home where the entrance was inundated with white wreaths. Some fans wore black sweat shirts reading "we'll miss you forever."

The territory's top stars also filed in to pay tribute, including singers Sammi Cheng and Gigi Leung.

Mui died on Dec. 30 of lung complications caused by cervical cancer. Her funeral service was scheduled for Monday.

Mui shot to fame in the 1980s, winning admirers across the Chinese-speaking world with her deep and melancholic voice. She appeared in many acclaimed films.

Mui also was active in charity work.
