Jeno Liu Liyang (previously as Jade; simplified Chinese: 刘力扬; traditional Chinese: 劉力揚; pinyin: Liú Lìyáng, born 24 October 1982) is a Chinese singer and actress. Jeno first found popularity in the third season (2006) of a singing contest in China, Super Girls (Chinese: 超级女声) or Super Voice Girl. Polling over 350 thousand votes, she emerged as the champion of the Guang Zhou district competition, and was subsequently crowned second runner up during the finals. Her charismatic personality and androgynous looks, paired with a soulful vocal, has won her a lot of fans, who are known as 'Li Zi' (Chinese:栗子, English: Chestnut), derived from her middle name 'Li'(力). On January 4, 2008, she joined HIM International Music.[1]

Biography[edit]

Liu Li Yang was born on October 24, 1982 in Beijing, China. Born to a military family, she grew up bright and righteous, and once appeared in newspapers for having caught a thief[2][3]

LI Yang graduated from Luton University, England, with a degree in Advertising and Marketing.

Li Yang is bilingual in Mandarin and English.

In her first advertisement, she broke her leg when performing a stunt and was hospitalised for a few months, putting her budding career on hold.[4] That affected her singing career adversely as she could not take part in most of the Super Girl touring concerts. After a speedy recovery, she immediately returned to the recording studio.
