Life and career[edit]

Early life and career beginnings[edit]

Gloria Tang Sze-wing (鄧詩穎) was born in Shanghai and moved to Hong Kong at the age of four.[5][6] She was brought up in a musical family,[7] her mother graduated from Shanghai Conservatory of Music, her grandmother taught her to sing, her uncle played the violin and her grandfather played the saxophone for an orchestra. G.E.M.'s own musical life began when she was five,[8] and she appeared on Educational Television for Mandarin when she was seven.[9][10] G.E.M. started writing songs as a composer at the age of ten[8] entering many singing competitions,[11] winning inter-school singing competitions.[11] When she was thirteen, she achieved a grade eight in piano.[12]

In 2006, G.E.M. entered the "Spice it Up" competition[11] in which she won first place. She caught the attention of her now-manager, Tan Chang, who offered her a contract with Hummingbird Music[8] thus becoming a professional singer at 16. G.E.M graduated from Heep Woh Primary School and True Light Girls' College[13] in Yau Ma Tei, Hong Kong, scoring 21 points[14] on the HKCEE. G.E.M continued with her education at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts in acoustics,[15] as a part-time student. However, her busy schedule made her unable to attend classes frequently, and she decided to quit the course during the first half of 2009.[15]

G.E.M. was highly successful in 2008, her debut year, winning ten major awards. G.E.M released her first EP featuring the award-winning song "Where Did You Go." G.E.M. won the gold new female singer award from CRHK Ultimate 903 (903專業推介 sponsored by Manhattan ID 信用咭),[16] becoming the first minor[17] to win the award. The media gave G.E.M nicknames such as "巨肺少女"[18] and "巨肺小天后" meaning "Girl with Giant Lungs" and "the Young Empress of Heaven with Giant Lungs" respectively because of her vocal range and she had performed songs by Whitney Houston and Beyoncé.[19][20]

In May 2009, G.E.M. went to Los Angeles, California, to record her first studio album, 18... with Hummingbird co-founder and producer Lupo Groining. Upon her return to Hong Kong in December, G.E.M. proceeded to travel to Toronto and Richmond Hill in Canada[21] for her first mini-concert in Canada, and held an autograph session in Pacific Mall. In the same year, G.E.M appeared in two feature films, Love Connected (保持愛你) and Trick or Cheat (愛出猫), and demonstrating her acting skills on the wide screen.

In May 2010, G.E.M. stayed in Taiwan for ten days to promote the Taiwanese edition of 18....[22] After the promotional tour, G.E.M returned to Los Angeles to record her next album, My Secret[23] with her producer. The album was recorded in a span of ten days in Santa Monica. During her time in LA, G.E.M has also appeared at the US Swimming National Open Water Swimming Championships in Long Beach, California, as a youth ambassador for Project Kaisei.[23][24]

During April 2011, just a month before G.E.M's sold out concert at the Hong Kong Coliseum, G.E.M's grandmother died just weeks before her scheduled concert in May, thus not having the chance to watch her granddaughter perform. In memory, G.E.M dedicated a part of her concert especially to her, and sang Josh Groban's You Raise Me Up, thanking her grandmother for her endless love and support. In subsequent concerts, there will always be a front row seat left vacant for her. The song 不存在的存在, which features on G.E.M's latest album Xposed.

Artistry[edit]

Online presence[edit]

With the help of Hummingbird Music, G.E.M. has successfully gained a large online audience. G.E.M. started her own personal YouTube channel blog in July 2008, and has since gained just under 60 thousand subscribers in the span of four years. G.E.M. has fans from Taiwan, Macau, US, Australia, Great Britain and other parts of Asia.[citation needed]

Through the means of social media, Hummingbird Music and G.E.M. created a new business model that utilizes the Internet as a tool to promote their music. Combining the elements of creativity and the success of viral videos, Hummingbird Music came up with the idea of MySecret Puzzle. MySecret Puzzle is a competition, consisting of six interactive videos. In order to win the competition, the user must solve the clues and meanings hidden behind these viral videos. The five winners of the competition would have the opportunity of having G.E.M. guest sing at their own home. The competition received an overwhelming response, and inspired G.E.M. to promote even more interactive videos and games on her personal website.

With the successes of MySecret Puzzle, G.E.M. featured a special surprise inside her album box set MySecret Boxset, which featured a special interactive cardboard code. The code, when paired with the webcam application on her official site, would provide her fans with a unique interactive video of G.E.M. performing her single MySecret.

She hoped to spread out the message though her fans to a wider range of society, and promised that she will continue to support the foundation.
