Taiwanese singer Ed Wang first put his name on the music map with his outstanding performances on the singing competition TV series “Sing! China” in 2017, and his stirring vocals were greatly praised by pop diva Na Ying and other judges in the music show. After a wait of three years, the singer finally released his first EP last month.
Wang’s new EP encompasses different genres ranging from rock to R&B, jazz, Latin and rap. Growing up in a music-loving family — his father loves Chinese opera and his mother is a fan of Western music — Wang says that his music style is a mixture of East and West. Inspired by his idol David Tao, Wang’s use of melisma has become a characteristic feature in his songs.
Wang has also released a photo book, titled “Wedding Night,” in which he shows of his physique. The 26-year-old singer hopes to, through the best-selling book, record his youth and share it with his fans.

I really want to take that class! (4/5) 我好想要加選喔！（四） A: Yesterday my roommate took me to sit in on one of the general education classes he’d selected, and good god! The teacher was great, I really want to take that class! B: Because the teacher was hot?
