Chinese "Super Girl" Ji Minjia

BEIJING, Feb. 14 -- Chinese "Super Girl" Ji Minjia had an American appearance, performing at the Asian-American Food Expo in Los Angeles, media reported on Wednesday.

The Beijing Times reported the young star won rave reviews from local media with her performance covering songs well-known to Chinese-Americans, including the classic tune "Mo Li Hua" or "Jasmine Flowers" on Sunday.

Ji Minjia became a role model for many Chinese girls after participating in the 2005 "Super Girl" singing competition, a show known as China's version of "American Idol."

She told the Beijing Times during a telephone interview that her American trip is goal-oriented, as she is trying to get to know some producers for her new album.

She is reportedly to meet with composer Daniel Walker in Los Angeles for the possibility of further collaboration. The two worked together last year to produce the title song for the Japanese anime series "Galaxy Railways."

Fellow super girls are also making headway with international audiences.

2005 Super Girl Zhang Liangying has been invited by World Peace One to join world-renowned musicians to sing in February. While the champion of the 2005 show, Li Yuchun, is also on the star-studded roster for FU-SION 2007, to be held in Las Vegas in February.
