Will Wong is an emerging pop crooner from Toronto who recently put out his debut album, titled "Connection," on Warner/Chappel Hill in Canada. Have a listen to the disc's title track, an '80s throwback tune that is currently impacting Canadian radio and climbing up the national Top 40/Hot AC radio charts.

The singer-songwriter, actor and photographer previously recorded in Chinese, but "Connection" is his formal English language debut. Wong is Canadian-born with his family having emigrated to Canada from Hong Kong in the late '70s. The release of "Connection" in June follows Wong's strenuous fight with cancer that he has beaten completely.

It is as if "Connection" is Wong's way of letting people know that he is healthier than ever and ready to fully embrace life by doing what he loves most.

The singer shares an interest tidbit of information in an email, "[Connection] was written August 14, 2004 on the night of the big blackout that affected Canada and America.  I was bored silly in the stifling heat without electricity, so I isolated in my bathroom of my apartment where it was cool and dark and the melody just came about."
