Charlie Liu
Piano prodigy Charlie Liu first made his name on the Oprah Winfrey Show in the "World's Most Talented Kids" episode that also featured 19-year-old Taylor Swift, and the Ellen DeGeneres Show where he impressed Daughtry with his flying fingers. At age 8, he set a world record as the youngest musician ever to perform in all 3 concert halls inside the world-famous Carnegie Hall. He is also the youngest ever picked to become a Lang Lang International Music Foundation Scholar.

During 2015-16, Charlie won more Top Prizes in the most prestigious Inter/National Junior Piano Competitions in the USA than anyone else. According to the famous pianist, Cliburn International Piano Competition Gold Medalist Vadym Kholodenko, Charlie was able to sets himself apart from other competitors through his "special approach to sound". Charlie had performed at top venues across the U.S. and soloed with orchestras in four states. He had performed for luminaries such as Queen Rania of Jordan and Bono of U2, among others.

However, Charlie maintains that music loses its purpose if not for the betterment of the society, so he has focused on helping the communities with his music. He initiated/organized benefit events such as "Young Artists for Haiti - Worldwise Piano Prodigies Collaborate" and benefit solo recitals for UI Children's Hospital, Plainsboro Rescue Squad and his own Rescue Music Foundation. He regularly helps out at other charity events, fundraisers and community events, bringing the joy of classical music to local schools and communities through public solo recitals.

A top student in the highly competitive WWP school district with near perfect or perfect score in every standard test taken, Charlie is also a top Math students in the state and competes at the highest level of High School Math Competitions in the U.S. In his leisure time, Charlie enjoys a variety of video games and also played travel hockey for 8 years. He has studied piano with Professor Ingrid Clarfield of Westminster Choir College since 2007.
