Born on 9th July 1979, Malaysia, Gary Chaw (Cao Ge) got a promising start when he won Hong Kong TVB's new comer singer award in 2006 and since then has released 2 albums, the latest titled "Superman".
He received his early education in Canada. He went on to continue his studies at Auckland University, New Zealand when he was 16.
He worked hard to get his music recognized and even got rejected along the way because music producers and companies thought his music quality was not good enough and some even commented on the way he looks and said that his looks wouldn't make him successful.
It is learnt that he struggled a lot like many other famous singers before becoming popular with his mandarin version of "Superwoman" by Karyn White. Cao wrote some chart-topping songs in Taiwan sung by S.H.E, Cyndi Wang, and Aaron Kwok.
His success today in the music industry has proven a lot of people wrong and has become an encouragement to those who wish to pursue their dreams. His music of sincerity touched many hearts and won him countless fans and awards. Like he says "spread music, spread love".
In a recent interview with MTV, Cao admits (fluently in English) that he is a shy guy who doesn't express himself well through words but well enough in the songs he sings. His early influences came from admiration of Stevie Wonder and R Kelly.
He is one of the rising singers that has been compared to David Tao and Jay Chou. His powerful vocal range has awed many people.
