Later, Chiu, the director of “The Journey” was looking someone to sing the theme song of this movie, under my recommendation, Geraldine passed the vocal casting. She was selected to be the lead singer for the theme song as well as the postlude for the movie, due to that, we also planned for her solo album. However, due to some other factors, the movie only can be released in 2014. The detention of the movie affected Geraldine’s solo plan. Therefore, the only thing she could do was to wait. However, in my opinion, I personally think that the detention was actually good for Geraldine. To become a successful artist, she has to able to stand the obstacles and difficulty.

Due to all these, Geraldine became the most famous and popular theme song singer. Because of the great mass rage, Geraldine launched “The Journey EP” and hit a sales record of seven thousand album, as well as more than 1 million views online. “The Journey” that hit 10 million at the box office is still holding the status of local Chinese movie highest box office record. It is pleasant to work with such amazing artist, I hope that in the future with her spirit of determination, Geraldine continues to develop and blooming with her charm to the international stage.
