Lin Yu Chun 林育羣 (Taiwan’s Susan Boyle)

Remember him? He successfully sang Whitney Houston’s “I will always love you” on Taiwan’s talent show “Avenue to Stardom”, which got posted on YouTube, and now almost 10 million people have watched the video online. That was back in April, but where is he now? Due to his growing popularity, he became the first Taiwanese singer to be invited to appear in an American talk show. He first appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on April 21st, 2010, and on the same day, appeared on Lopez Tonight, receiving standing ovation at both after performing several songs. In August, he was again invited to the US to perform live on America’s Got Talent. Now actually a star, he has signed a contract with Sony Music. His first album, It’s My Time 夢想啟航, was released this September (and available for purchase on Amazon and iTune), featuring 10 songs including Under Your Wings, composed by Grammy Award-winning songwriter Walter Afanasieff, who was so impressed with Lin that he agreed to write a song for him despite his busy schedule. We wish him the best in his singing career, and may he be an inspiration to those who are pursuing their dreams.
