Every once and awhile you get to be part of something special. While I was surrounded by fans at the G.E.M. press conference earlier this week at the House of Blues Hollywood I couldn't help but think that this was one of those moments. I was overwhelmed by G.E.M.'s (Get Everybody Moving) performance in the best way possible, even though most of her songs were in chinese. Her performance was packed with so much heart and emotion that it could have moved mountains. As I stood surrounded by a handful of lucky G.E.M. fans watching the exclusive video shared below, I knew this was the start of something big.

我喜歡G.E.M.，從五年前看到19歲的她在電視上認真唱著A.I.N.Y.，直到一年前她在《我是歌手》裏面的一鳴驚人，突然的她就火了。於今年二月聽到G.E.M.來拉斯維加斯開個人演唱會的消息時，我跟我朋友更是幾乎是跟隨者本能毫不猶豫就買了票。果然不出所料，身稱”小鐵肺“的她在昏沈的燈光下蹙着眉，手捧麥克風深情低吟《泡沫》，更用輕快動人的快歌帶動全場觀眾大合唱，一起用高分貝的歡呼聲high爆整個演唱 Read More Here
G.E.M Played several songs and did a Q & A session with her fans. One of the things I liked most about her was how humble she was. She mentioned how her favorite treat was peanut butter, when a fan asked her how she deals with fitting into new places, like America, she explained that not everyone is peanut butter.. in other words not everyone is going to love you everywhere you go, that's why you need to love yourself.
I believe the success of G.E.M.'s tour in America will rely heavily on her popularity with ABC's or American Born Chinese ( A B C and G E M I think that half the alphabet... L O L) but the real question will be if she has the cross over power to attract English only speaking music lovers. We will have a much better idea of that answer when G.E.M. releases her English only album. Personally, I'm excited for this to happen sooner rather than later.
