Didn't see a G.E.M. thread so thought I'd start one. I really like her.
Born in Shanghai, G.E.M. moved to Hong Kong at the age of 4. Ever since G.E.M. was young, she had a passion for music. At the age of 5, she started writing lyrics. When she was 10, she started entering numerous amounts of singing competitions. She was awarded 5 major awards within her debutante year (2008).
G.E.M. finished level 8 piano when she was 13.
In 2006, G.E.M. participated in a competition called "Spice it Up" and got first place. Her manager, Tan Chang found her talent during the competition and signed a contract with her. She became a singer at the age of 14.
This is the video that made me fall in love with her. She's super cool and talented. I hope she is very successful.
wow.. seems like there's very little c-pop fans around here.. lol anyway, i'm a huge fan of G.E.M.! She's like one of the very few HK singers I'm following in the last few years.. and actually give a damn about lol. Though I have to say her songs are hard to sing.. especially if you don't have a wide vocal range like she does >_< i feel bad every time I butcher her song in the karaoke lounge :/
Where did you go? I borrowed her cd off a friend one day. She just happened to have it on her and offered it to me. On first Listen I was blown away by how talented she was and I loved the raw feel of her voice and how she combined elements of rnb into her chinese songs. She has a pretty youtube page too with personal stuff on it.
She is definitely my favorite HK singer (and one of the few I actually listen to ahaha)... My favorite songs form her are A.I.N.Y., 等一個他, Get Over You, Where did you go, 我的秘密, 寂寞星球的小玫瑰, All About You, and 回憶的沙漏. Her voice seriously gives me the chills when she does those crazy high notes...just amazing Anyone seen this video before? its one of my favorite performances/duets by her Lady Marmalade!
why is it so dead out here in the cpop recesses of JPA?
anyways...G.E.M 3333 shes defs my favourite cantopop singer too... i love it when she belts out those high notes. Anyone go to a concert on her Get Everybody Moving Tour? she was awesome. man she even played an acoustic ver. of A.I.N.Y on the piano:P
shes from shanghai, and is based out of hong kong!
