Vancouver-based, Chinese-born singer-songwriter Wanting Qu began her North American tour this week, opening with a show in Vancouver on Sunday, Oct. 7, before moving on to shows in Los Angeles, New York, and Toronto.
Born in Harbin, China, Qu left when she was 16 to become an international business student in Canada. She went on to earn her degree in business, but eventually relocated to Vancouver to continue writing and performing at events.
In hindsight, it was obvious how important music was going to be to Qu.
Qu was signed to Nettwerk Music Group after having her songs featured in Mercedes Benz commercials and go viral in China. Her debut album, “Everything in the World,” reached platinum status in Hong Kong and double platinum in China. Tickets to her first run of shows quickly sold out. (end)
