Here’s someone for Rain to look up to – Laure Shang.
Shanghai Media Group’s new English channel did a documentary on the competition singers who represent their cities – Laure Shang@Shanghai, Leona Lewis@London and Jennifer Hudson@LA. In it, Laure Shang shows off her perfect English and raises some valid points about the Chinese music industry.

And this is coming from someone who has never lived in an English-speaking country. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, though, since Laure Shang has been one of Shanghai’s top French-Chinese interpreters, and apparently is also fluent(?) in German. Plus, just to major in a foreign language in the prestigious Fudan University (best Chinese university not in Beijing) requires passing special exams to insure exemplanary foreign language abilities.
