Jane Zhang (Zhang Liangying), originally from Chengdu, Sichuan Province of China, raises her stardom from 2005 Super Voice Girl, a Pop-idol like show in China. She held the third place in this annual nation-wide singing competition, which is organized by Hunan Satellite TV since 2004 and watched by nearly a third of the country’s 1.3 billion people (The competition started with the preliminary regional rounds involving 120,000 girls in the 2005 serials.) However, she has been recognized by the professional judges and audiences as the most talented singer and even regarded by some critics to be one of the top-level foreign language singers in China. She had a couple of cover songs sung in the contests, including “Loving you”, “Beautiful”, “What’s up”, “Don’t cry for me, Argentina”, etc. Her outstanding performances of English songs paved a way for her career to go internationally later on. She finished in 3rd place with more than 1.3 million text message votes.

The three English songs were produced in the US by Craig Valentino Williams, best known for discovering the R&B singer R. Kelly and his work -《I believe I can fly》.
