Jason Chan (Chinese: 陳柏宇), also known as Chan Pak Yu, is a singer from Hong Kong. He moved to Canada at a young age. Jason Chan attended Markville Secondary School in Markham, Ontario. In 2005, his musical talent was discovered in Hong Kong and is now signed with Sony Music. He has currently released six albums and one EP, titled First Experience, First Experience: Collectors Edition,Change, Close Up(EP), Can't Be Half, Put On, Quinquennium 新曲+精选, Lost and Found and most recently, The Next Moment. Jason entered the music industry by the help of his friend Marco, who sent Jason's previous competition demo to Sony BMG Hk. After Sony BMG received the demo they thought that he was very talented and called him for an interview. After the interview Jason signed a contract with Sony BMG (today Sony Music) and began his music career.

Previously Jason was working as a hair washer at a local Toronto salon. His previous ambition was to become a full-time hair stylist.

Jason Chan's most popular songs are: "I Miss You", "I Will Be Loving You", "你瞞我瞞" (You Deceive, I Deceive) and "拍一半拖" (Half Dating). These are all slow love ballads and the biggest part of Jason's songs are in the same category. Jason often mentions that his voice is matched to sing slow sad love songs. But for his recent album "Can't Be Half": Jason said he wanted to try a new challenge: to sing a few fast songs. The decision gave him two fast songs: "最後的擁抱" (the last hug), which is a Japanese rock cover of Mr.Mrs, and "Imaginary Love" written by "Fiona Fung".

When Jason has free time, he likes to play video games like "Monster Hunter Tri". His favorite food is bananas and he also loves chocolate, but due to voice affecting, he doesn't eat as much. Jason is also a fan of toy figures as "Bart Simpson" and "Family Guy".

Personal life[edit]

Jason is fluent in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin. When he was seven, his family immigrated to Toronto, where he resided for 15 years. He enjoys playing video games, and is a fan of toy figures such as "Bart Simpson" and "Family Guy." Jason loves his family and friends dearly and will do anything for them to keep them happy[1]
