It's not that easy! You have to first be able to play music really well. I wouldn't say there is a big competition. Where you from originally? If you can find a competition join it and try to be heard. American Idol has polarized some figures into superstardom already and it could do the same to you. Good Luck! Cheerio! broken heart

start  searching what's really best... what you really want to be.. Just focus on one career first.. one at a time and not at the same time..it's what most successful people do.. having a career is learning it by heart.. and not just for the "pay"...of course it includes everything in the end... good luck

If you can speak fluent Chinese and sing in Chinese for example this will help a little as you will be a novelty, apart from knowing the right people or being in the right place at the right time.

Yes, advertising companies are always looking for people who can't spell, don't proof read and have no experience. You're a shoe in. Sell everything you own and come to China.

i do not care how this sounds but your picture is black so i do not see a lock happening unless you like really racist adds for things with black or chicken in there names.

 

though if you are a champion kickboxer or basketball player then you might have a chance of not shaming your self.

 

 

please correct me if i am wrong but think there only like two or three white actors who started out in china that are known, and i do not think black men have the same chances after the stuff i have read here.

 

First I did do research I cannot find any famous black men in china besides the one from the article on echina. Second I said he could get work, just not real acting work. Third all I am saying it is unlikely, why would they ever higher a black man to star in a movie or TV show. Forth he would have to be a Sidney Poitier or Denzel Washington level black actor and speak perfect mandarin and Cantonese. There is just no market at the time. So I stand by what I said he does not make himself sound that good or confident, so why would I think that he would be able to do something so hard to do.
here is the article

Steve is right. If you can sing and speak Chinese well, there's a chance that people will find you entertaining. But I don't think it is going to be lucrative. Besides, it's probably not the type of fame you're looking for.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
