Being a celebrity does not gives one the right to be proud or high-handed, instead it should make oneself humble and grateful..Why ?
Think of the money that was poured into buying one’s albums and supporting one’s concerts or movies no matter how steep the prices of the tickets were..! One should always remember that without the fans, one won’t become a star or a celebrity..! Without the support given by fans, there won’t even be a stage for one to perform on nor a market to sell one’s talents..
It goes the same way with fans too..without a star or a celebrity to chase or follow one wouldn’t be called a fan or supporter of certain celebrity..!Sometimes fans’ obsession towards a star or celebrity can be very frightening to the extent that they think they own the celebrity..! Why? Just because they spent their money on the star, they think that they have the right to impose and demand..They don’t give respect to the artiste anymore. Things are different now than from the past generations..In these present times people have turned fickle and materialistic and nothing is permanent..The movies now and then have a vast difference in contents and story..just like in the songs too..Most of the present day songs no longer hold any profound meaning and are just jingles and not worth the attention..with all those auto-tune and lots of repetitions in one song..Unlike days of old, songs can inspire and motivate one’s life and can be seen as an evergreen song..or even turned into a classic..Those were the songs of good quality and substance and can withstand the testings of time and eras..
I have not been following any singer nor actor since I grew out of my teenage years..and now suddenly BAM..! I found myself taking a liking and fondness for a young and naive boy who hails from a remote province in the North-East part of China..A boy who is not yet a man by the name of Han Geng..who can enthralled and enrapt audiences of all age levels..He alone can hold the stage by himself without the need for an entourage of dancers..In all my years listening to Chinese songs, his songs are a break-away from the normal Chinese pop.. they are refreshing and stylish in form and substance..No wonder people of all genre are attracted to them..!!
In the 1970′s – 80′s there was the Mando-pop made popular by Taiwanese singers like Teresa Teng and the Canto-pop made popular by groups and individuals from Hong Kong..and those were the typical Chinese songs..but now with Han Geng entering the arena, it’s going to be a challenge for other singers, whether veterans or newbies, to look at new and innovative ways of writing and singing songs, be it Canto or Mando..Han Geng has raised the bar for quality songs and performances..he has raised the standards for others to either follow or even be on par with him..There are many singers out there but none yet are of his calibre where he dances and sings at the same time without breaking up the song with breathlessness..He is one very rare species..only a few can do that..where the song isn’t distorted by the vigorous and energetic dancing..None yet can match his form and style as of now, and until then, the world is his stage..hehehe…!!!
The kind of impact that Han Geng has of now over the public is a phenomenon that can’t be explained for the moment..why are his fans so eager to heed his call to help the less fortunate and to do charity work..? Why are they willing to run a 10 km distance without his participation..? These pictures were taken on Nov. 6, 2010 in Shanghai..
It can only mean one thing and that is, Han Geng is sincere and he is exceptional..He knows how to appreciate fans’ love and adoration and to be grateful for all the blessings he receives ..He knows how to give back to society with what he has received..!!
Just look at his fans and they look like a Golden Army of soldiers..something like the Terracotta Warriors from the Qin dynasty..!That was at the NIKE Run in Shanghai..look at Gengrice..!! They are formidable..!! hehehe…
The second video clip shows him making an appearance at the Dinner for Investors hosted by CCTV, the national television station of China where it has a wide network in all the parts of China..!! This is a very significant stage for him because it will foster good investment for him in future..So far, can anyone make a guess how much is Han Geng’s worth and value by now..? hehehe..!!
He is making progressive inroads in his field of choice and Gengfans should be proud of that as they did contribute some efforts to his success in China..They have been “advertising” Han Geng with their own methods..like welcoming and sending him off at airports..attending all the concerts,shows and events that he is on or in…The last time Han Geng went on Happy Camp where he first introduce his album; that episode garnered the highest ratings for that show for the TV network..!! That’s the power of Gengrice..! Gengrice also promoted him in their own way..by introducing him to people whom they think might help him in his career, during the time when Han Geng was still attached with another company..They flooded the message boards of TV shows asking them to invite Han Geng on their shows as we know that Han Geng didn’t debut nor develop his career in China..Through these efforts, they made Han Geng known in China..they showed the TV networks that Han Geng is popular and it’s worth inviting him to their shows…! Now, Gengrice can sit back a little watching Han Geng does his part ..all they needed to do is just be visible at events and participate in activities..!! Thanks to those Gengrice who devoted their time in promoting him, that he is able to come this far, this quickly..!..Let us continue to support him and see him soar higher and higher..
