Chinese-born, Vancouver-based singer/songwriter WANTING has announced four special live shows, starting Sunday, October 7 in Vancouver and continuing on to Los Angeles, New York City and Toronto. Wanting also premiered the colorful video for “Life Is Like A Song” with BaebleMusic.com, who said it’s “just the thing you need to put the poppy pep in your step today.” Check out the full feature on BaebleMusic.com here: http://bit.ly/O1HiWb.

The rising talent released her debut album, EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD, in North America in April, and left for China soon after, where Universal Music China released the album in July. Everything In The World went Platinum in its first week. Wanting has been touring across China all summer, playing various headline shows and festivals in front of audiences of nearly 40,000; the album is now Double Platinum in China and Hong Kong.

Whether penned in her native tongue of Mandarin or English (which she only learned to speak at age 16), Wanting’s piano-swept music wins over the masses because her compositions—pop musings that plumb emotion—resonate universally. Her unique story quickly caught the attention of the CBC flagship nightly news program The National, who caught up with Wanting before she left for China.
