Biography

Wanting Qu, simply known as Wanting (born October 10, 1983) is a Chinese singer-songwriter and pianist based in Vancouver.

Wanting was born and raised in Harbin, Heilongjiang, China. She moved to Canada at 16 to study, eventually earning a degree in international business, and relocated to Vancouver where she began her musical career.

In 2009, she became the first Chinese artist to be signed to the Nettwerk label; she is managed by Terry McBride. Her first album, Everything In The World (produced by Winston Hauschild and jointly released with Universal Music China in 2012) went platinum in China within its first week on sale, and her singles "You Exist in My Song" and "Drenched" were used in the soundtrack for the Hong Kong film Love in the Buff.

In 2013, she became the first ever tourism ambassador for Vancouver, with the intention of raising Canada's profile among destinations for Chinese visitors. Qu will participate in a series of videos, bringing together her music with scenic imagery of British Columbia. She will also personally show fans around Vancouver and Whistler as part of a contest.
Qu appeared on the 2013 CCTV New Year's Gala, where she performed "You Exist In My Song."
The song "Star in You" from the album Everything In The World was featured in Degrassi: The Next Generation in the episode "Bitter Sweet Symphony, Part II" on Feb 22nd, 2013.
