G.E.M. Singer Performances Cause Sensation In China, Stays At Number 1 In Charts


G.E.M. has retained her Number 1 position on the Top 30 Asia Hong Kong charts while her recent appearances on ‘I Am A Singer 2’ is causing a sensation in China.

‘Intoxicated’ is Number One in the Top 30 Asia chart for the second week, while G.E.M. enjoys a staggering total of FOUR singles in the Top 10. 

G.E.M., who’s real name is Gloria Tang Sze-wing, is hugely popular in her home of Hong Kong and in 2012 achieved the distinction of being the country’s top selling female artist. However, it’s her recent appearances on China’s hit TV show, ‘I Am A Singer 2’ which is causing her talents to be talked about about by millions of people in the mainland.

G.E.M. Singer Performances

I Am A Singer is a popular show in China that pitches new and veteran singers to perform each week and then asks the public to vote for their favourite. The singer in last place is eliminated (although new singers are then added!) until there is an eventual winner. G.E.M. is currently performing extremely well and in week’s 3 and 4 achieved the record of being the first singer this series to be voted in first place for two consecutive weeks. However, the show is also building awareness in mainland China of the singer grandly known in Hong Kong as the ‘Young Empress of Heaven with Giant Lungs’. 

G.E.M., who recently complained of being badly treated by the TVB TV station when she was told to perform in a short dress in a cold studio, has recently been romantically linked with Yoga Lin. Although they’re keeping their romance low key, they’ve been spotted several times together in New York and Yoga Lin recently posted a Tweet congratulating her on her I Am A Singer performances.
