Chinese-born Vancouver-based singer Wanting Qu - who won her fame with the song "You Exist in My Song"- performed at the Rockwood Music Hall in lower Manhattan on October 15th. It was an amazing show, with Wanting creating a warm atmosphere that drew the audience's undivided attention, at points even inspiring audience members to sing along.  

From my 20 minute interview with Wanting, it became obvious that her music is both an extension of her straightforward, easy-going, and cool personality, as well as a product of her intimate connection with her music. She refers to her musical style as the "Wanting Style." She elaborated, saying even though her songs have been influenced by the producers during studio production, she has still managed to keep part of her "Wanting Style" within her songs, to promise her fans that what they hear represents her.

Now signed to Canada's Nettwerk Records, Wanting's past experiences should be a source of inspiration to people looking to succeed, whether it be in music or some other aspect of life. In contrast to what most people think, Wanting believes it is precisely the hardships she experienced that made it impossible for her to give up on her passion. These obstacles didn't give her a reason to quit; they gave her a reason to persist. Towards the end of our interview, Wanting offered some words of encouragement: "Be yourself, because no one understands you better than yourself." This was the message evident in Wang Ting's music, as well as her very person: be candid, honest, believe in what you do and walk your own path to success.
