Wang Leehom's name and face are so instantly recognizable in Asia that a simple trip to the grocery store quickly becomes a tabloid event. He has had numerous radio hits and million-selling records, and his acting talents have led to silver-screen collaborations with major figures in the film world. He is also ubiquitous in Asian ad campaigns for McDonald's, Coke, Suzuki motorcycles, Elite Shoes, and many more. His American roots and serious approach to Chinese language and culture have yielded a winning combination, making the Berklee alumnus a cultural icon for a rising generation of Asian youth.
