Taiwanese YouTube Sensation Lin Yu Chun To Sign Sony Record Deal

Who can forget reality show contestant Lin Yu Chun, who blew away viewers around the world with his singing on the Taiwanese show "One Million Star?" We previously blogged about Chun's amazing performance of "I Will Always Love You," which initially shot him to fame, as well as his visit to the U.S. to perform on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and the "Lopez Tonight" show with William Shatner. According to XinMSN, it looks like the unstoppable Chun is now set to ink a record deal with Sony on May 13. After Sony's overseas executives attended one of his performances in Taipei, they expressed interest in signing him to their label. Will Chun be as successful as Susan Boyle, whom many people compare him to? It remains to be seen, but with such raw talent, Chun is undeniably going places.
