Kimi Qiao’s Label Releases Self-titled Posthumous Album with All Proceeds Going to Depression Treatment Charity

Perhaps the saddest entertainment world news story of 2016 was the suicide of Chinese singer-actor Kimi Qiao at the age of 27. It was completely shocking because of his sunshine boy persona in public and hard working reputation as someone who loved what he was doing. Turns out Kimi suffered from depression which was exacerbated in recent years by cruel C-netizens finding fault and lobbing criticism for real and imagined infractions. News has died down in the nearly three months since his passing but he’s back in the news for positive and heartwarming reasons.

Kimi’s label has released a posthumous album titled “Kimi” containing an anthology of his best songs and over a dozen news tracks which includes tracks recorded in the past which wasn’t included in previous albums along with news tracks recorded prior to his passing for his future work. There is also a new MV to go along with one of those songs. Kimi’s family has given full blessing for this new album and his fans are thrilled and comforted knowing that he’s doing what he loves best – singing his heart out and entertaining his fans, and with the proceeds being donated to a charity to help those suffering from the depression that took Kimi’s life much too early.
