Gary (曹格) is a Malaysian, to be specific, he is a Sabahan.
He had been drifting from Malaysia to Canada, and from Canada to New Zealand throughout his childhood. And what a coincidence, I just knew that my sister, who spent her few years studying in Auckland is an acquaintance of Gary Cao!
So, Gary! Listen carefully, if you read this post, contact me! No joke man, my sister really knows you.
Ok, I’m done with the personal part. Let’s continue with his music.
Gary mentioned that his music career was not successful from the start. He even revealed that he once had the idea of ending his life when he could not find his way in his life. Not knowing which path to choose and going through some turmoils at the same time is certainly demotivating.
That was the past, and Gary is a blinking star who never surrenders to destiny. His music, always the style of “Gary”, proves to be well-accepted by us.
I like his Betrayal (背叛) a lot.
Betrayal (背叛) by Gary Cao Piano Sheet Preview
Even before Taiwanese star search show indirectly promoted this song, I already thought that this song is a wonderful masterpiece. Even though some people claimed that the contestants made this song famous instead of Gary himself, I still think that the song itself deserves the fame…
Reminder: Gary composed this song…
I spent some time transcribing this song into a piano sheet. The original key is in B Major, but I transposed it into C Major out of convenience. Chords and lyrics are included.
