I’m Back!

Hey All!

Was off the grid for a while. I just got back from Taiwan. I’ve been studying Chinese there for the past 3 months! Just came back to do a gig with my a cappella group, The Funx. We opened for Jay Leno at his comedy show in Charlotte, NC! Next week, I’ll be singing the national anthem at the USA Wrestling Greco World Team Trials at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. You can get more info on the gigs page. Excited to be back in the states and doing shows again!


Lunar New Year Festival 2015

First gig of the new year! I’ll be performing at the Lunar New Year Festival in downtown Monterey Park on Saturday, February 7th. The festival is from 10am-9pm that day but my performance will begin at 7pm. Last year’s turnout was 200k people! More details TBA. Click here for more information. Hope to see you there! :-)

Headliners at SoJam

Along with The Funx, I’ll be headlining at SoJam this weekend in Durham, NC! It’s a massive a cappella event that takes place over the entire weekend with both classes and performances. You can get tickets here!

Awesomeness at TACL-LID Camp

I had a blast speaking (and SINGING) for the kids at TACL-LID Camp in Big Bear, CA, today. Certainly an amazing organization that brings Taiwanese American youth together.  And also the most hilarious Q&A session I have ever had :-) IMG_2628
