Liu Li Yang (simplified Chinese: 刘力扬; pinyin: Liú Lìyáng, English name: Jade), born in 24 October 1982, first found popularity in the third season (2006) of a singing contest in China, Super Girls (Chinese: 超级女声) or Super Voice Girl. Polling over 350 thousand votes, she emerged as the champion of the Guang Zhou district competition. Being one of the favourites to claim the top three spots during the nationals, she was crowned 2nd runner up. Her charismatic personality and androgynous looks, paired with a soulful vocal, has won her a lot of fans, who are known as 'Li Zi' (Chinese:栗子, English: Chestnut), derived from her middle name 'Li'(力). On January 4, 2008, she joined HIM International Music.
In her first advertisement, she broke her leg when performing a stunt and was hospitalised for a few months, putting her budding career on hold. Also because of that, she participated in only one of the six Super Girls 2006 touring concerts. After a speedy recovery, she immediately returned to the recording studio. She is currently on promotional tour for her newly released single, Puppets.
