The Influence of a Chinese Christian Pop Star is Going Viral

Non-Mandarin speakers might not know him as well, but mention the name Jay Chou anywhere in the Chinese world and they are certain to know exactly who he is. Jay Chou is a Chinese singer who has been dubbed ‘King of Mandopop’ and has been shaping the world of Chinese music for years.

At the age of 33, Jay accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior and was baptized in 2012. Now, as an evangelical Christian, his influence is having a massive impact on how an entire generation of Chinese see Christians.

Last week, Jay released a new video called GREATEST WORKS OF ART on YouTube and immediately garnered 9 million views in two days.


The viral reception on YouTube is only a small part of the story. YouTube is blocked in China, so most Chinese viewers are not able to see it on that platform. It went even more viral on Chinese platforms, with the hashtag for the album viewed more than 420 million times on Chinese social media and the video gaining 130 million views on Weibo and 14 million views on the streaming platform Bilibili.

As China cracks down on Christianity and takes extreme measures to persecute the underground house church, it is interesting to note that God is working in ways that the Communist Party cannot understand and because they cannot understand it, they continue to be unable to stop it.

Dr. Eugene Bach is a known trouble-maker with an active imagination and sinful past. He has a PhD, but is not a real doctor, so please do not call for him during a medical emergency on an airplane when someone is having a heart attack. Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name. He spends most of his time in closed countries attempting to topple governments by proclaiming the name of Jesus and not taking showers. From time-to-time he pretends to be a writer. He is not good at it, but everyone around him tries to humor him.

    I don’t know. I don’t want to be disrespectful at all. I think Jay joining the Christian community is a mistake. Not saying that it is for other people, but he is too famous and can be exploited as a member of a group. Once you join this group, you can be implied to live a life that you are not actually living. Jay is not a religious person at all. He has never studied any forms of spirituality. And I suspect that he never even had the urge to join spiritual groups. Many of his friends are Christians and I can see him casually join a group right before getting married in a church. It was supposed to be only superficial. The way that Jay participate religion is like a Scandinavian approach, as most Scandinavian people join the Christian religion to participate a cultural tradition. Jay’s involvement with the religion, is he has any at all in practice, is cultural. He one day wants an NFT monkey, the next day wants a bat mobile, and the next day wants a religion… it is a very small person centaur of Jay’s life…
