Jonny Blu (Lan Qiang) has, for several years now, successfully pursued a completely unprecedented approach to the world music scene. In October of 2004 Jonny signed with See Music in Hong Kong, China and has since released his album including 3 chart topping Mandarin songs "On the Edge" "The Apology"and "Crossroads". They are all uniquely written (in Chinese) and produced by Jonny and the songs and their accompanying Music Videos have been heard and viewed by millions. He has appeared in several television and radio shows (including "Solid Gold Music"), newspapers and magazines throughout southern China. Jonny Blu is the first and only Caucasian artist ever to have done so in the history of the music business and his fan base grows daily.
Jonny is used to being unique. From a young age Jonny was both writing music and practicing martial arts. Throughout his life he has practiced different forms of martial arts, including Kenpo, Qi Gong and Shaolin Kung Fu. He showed a gift for language at a young age, which led him to study at the prestigious Peking University in Beijing during his college years through the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). After studying and traveling in China for two years, Jonny returned to the States where he would again go against the grain. As the only non-Chinese artist, he entered a Chinese singing competition in Los Angeles on a whim. This decision eventually led him back to China where his talent and fluency in Mandarin quickly saw him rise in the music world in China and ultimately became the first ever non-Chinese pop star.
In 2004, Jonny appeared (as himself) in the Disney blockbuster movie "Princess Diaries 2: A Royal Engagement" and he received an RIAA Certified Gold Record in the USA for his Mandarin Chinese version of his song "Miracles Happen" on the Soundtrack.
Jonny was also voted as "Hot New Sound" at the 2005 Metro Music Awards in Hong Kong, which has never before been achieved by a non-Chinese.
