《成义国杜》is currently down, so I went to search for videos instead. And I found this verified page where A-do leaves messages:
I will be adding this as one of the sidebar links.

He sang the theme song as a newcomer in 1999 (unfortunately this is not in the video, but it was shown on TV a few years ago), and won the Best Newcomer (Gold) and Best Local Singer (with Stefanie Sun) in 2002 and 2003 respectively.
No nominations this year, but hopefully next year I will be filing more posts under the “Singapore Hit Awards” label with his album tentatively due this November.

Zhang Tianyang from Liaoning did pretty well for Maths in the recent National College Entrance Examination too. I had seen her posting on youyou previously, and she just registered on 国杜 to tell us the good news herself.

His songs are a bit sad, but his boy-like smile can quickly warm you up! And people love A-do for both reasons.
He sings for only two years, but he's already a bit star in Asia's pop world. The Singaporean（新加坡）singer has already (已经) made three albums (专辑).Together they have sold more than five million copies across Asia.
Last Friday, China's Music Radio named "the Asian King of Pop."A-do said he didn't expect the award (奖励)."It's great for me. It makes me want to work even harder."
His new album "Hello" came out in December. He sings with the same rough (粗糙的) voice, and he puts in some rock music. In the "Hello" music video, Vicky Zhao (赵薇) is with A-do outside on a cold day in Northern China.
A-do was a huose builder before he became singer. Every day after work, he would sing by himself. Other workers heard him and told him he should be in a contest (比赛).
A-do doesn't change much. He still gers nervous in front of cameras (镜头).Peng Yiting a Junior at Beijing's No 80 Middle School, says, "He's real and doesn't show off(炫耀).He's an everyday hero and shows anyone can do well if they work hard."
1 How are A-do's songs, according to the text?
2 Where is A-do from?
3 Which word in the story describes A-do's voice?
4 What did A-do do before he became a singer?
5 Why do his fans like him so much?
(I spaced out the words, but left the spelling as it is.)

I was reading about fanfiction on a favourite author’s blog, and then remembered, in the first one or two years after A-do released his first album, that I had seen fanfiction with A-do as a character. I was even inspired to write some of my own, featuring mainly Singaporean artistes, but never posted it anywhere public.
This is a story I was reading at that time:
And these are others I just discovered:

Queenie is the female lead for Love Bakery, and this is her second book on her experience studying in the United States. From the content page listed it looks like A-do co-wrote one of the recommendation forewords with Ming Dao, another of Queenie’s previous co-stars. Pre-orders are currently being taken in Taiwan.
Wonder if this will be out in Singapore as well?

Do drop a note at the Let’s Play Ball official blog, we are hoping to see this song released as a single/part of the soundtrack or even better, as one of the songs in A-do’s new album!

I have seen a few people (including those outside Singapore) coming in to look for A’do’s 《新家》(Xin Jia/New Home) lyrics, so here’s the link to the Chinese lyrics as well as an English translation I found on the Habitat for Humanity website.

For those 3 days A-do was the guest DJ on this radio show. The last recording on the DJ’s blog entry, when someone requested Stanley Huang’s 《音浪》Yin Lang (Sound Wave), is hilarious. A few days later during my Physics lecture on sound waves I held in my laughter at the memory of hearing the recording, and on Let’s Dance 2 weeks ago, one group performed accompanied by a medley of Stanley’s songs, one of which was 《音浪》, and I could feel the laughter bubbling up within me again.
The Youtube videos on the blog entry has been deleted, but the audio recordings are still there.

Came across this by chance. There are 18 photos of A-do.
