Abstract

Beginning in the early 1990s, Chinese popular music has seen an increase in the number of Chinese American or American-Born Chinese (ABC) musicians who have left the United States to pursue careers in China. These musicians not only possess their Chinese cultural heritage, but also bring with them aspects of the American experience. Two of the most prominent ABC pop stars in China are Wang Leehom and Vanness Wu. Although the two have similar backgrounds and both identify as ABC, the ways in which they express their Chineseness and Americanness in their music and public image vary significantly.
