Belmont senior Jackson Wells shares his experiences over the last three years touring in China, transitioning from student artist to rising star overseas. As a musician, his ability to speak Chinese and translate his songs into the language has opened doors to new–and large–audiences. After multiple visits and performances in China over the past four years, Wells has developed an active following and now performs for thousands of fans who know his songs word for word. In fact, he is scheduled to leave in late February to travel to China to begin six months of intensive study at Beijing Language and Culture University. He'll also be performing at several music festivals and embarking on a tour while overseas.
