WHERE IS YOUR LOVE ?
are people in the world
have been forgotten by us...
of them seem to be our concern."
Wu Tung Ming
these lines, sung by the artist Allan Moo in Mandarin Chinese, Peter Wu's song
starts pointing to the fate of those who have been deserted by their dreams
and laughter. They are suffering from hunger, while we have lost our
compassion for them.
a world where "peace gives in to war" and where nature can no
longer resist mankind's destructive forces children still
than wait for a miracle we should recover our love "deep inside" in
order to make "hope dance in the air" on behalf of our children's
future in a peaceful world.

a century has elapsed since the Second World War; and human existence is not
yet free from the menace of pain, hatred and war. Hong Kong is a highly
commercial place; its music industry is no exception. The majority of the
participants in this industry including song & lyric writers are market-oriented.
Liberating himself from this trend, drawing upon religious inspiration by
Christianity and his musical talents, Peter has composed a "Song For
Peace In The World" in order to appeal to the world's awareness towards the
urgency of peace in the new millennium.

Peter Wu has inherited his love for
music from his family. His father was a leader of a music band. His two elder
sisters are experienced teachers and instructors in music & in
piano-playing in particular. Growing up in a musical environment, Peter
discovered his talents in writing musical scores and became a
member of CASH, Hongkong's performing rights society.
In 1986, Peter Wu, who first worked as a
piano teacher, took the chance to join the record production industry. From
1986 to 1998, he was associated with Capital Artists, World Records, Cinepoly
Records, Music Impact & Rock Records, taking part in all kinds of music
production with a lot of singers and artists including Roman Tam, Elisa Chan,
Jackie Chan (Rush Hour Movie - Kung Fu action movie star), Faye Wong, Eason
Chan, Jenny Yan, Leo Koo, Alex To, Karen Mok, Sam Hui, Ricky Hui, Rain Lau,
Man Fong, Jessica Chow, Allan Moo, Aaron Kwok, Wong Yik,.etc. During this
time he displayed an immense capacity as a producer,
composer, writer and arranger and was stationed in Taiwan, Hong Kong and
After 10 years of intensive work in
commercial records production, Peter became aware that he had deviated from
his original orientation, that of creation. So instead of satisfying himself
as a secure player in the commercial record production game for the rest of
his life, he determined to re-create for himself after the expiry of his
contract with Rock Records in 1998. He then wrote, arranged and produced the
original soundtrack of the gospel movie "Sky Knows".
Peter has performed at, and has
been interviewed by, one of our famous broadcasting companies called
"Cable TV", and the news of his musical success has spread through
all our media in Chinese, English & Japanese. As
the only Asian Winner of this competition, Peter Wu Tung Ming has made Asians
feel proud the world over. With this win, his influence will certainly go
beyond that on bona fide musical artists and discerning consumers of the
Asian market... As a representative of the musical industry of the East, he
has raised the profile of Hong Kong on the world.
