" I am very excited to be a part of Jade Music Fest this year. I am proud to represent the Chinese community in arts through this festival and connect with all the talented Chinese artists in Vancouver, Canada and beyond. It is important in my artist vision to share my heritage and also inspire younger up and coming Chinese artists in Canada to thrive in this music industry."
