A personal note from Ji Liu:
"I had such a great time at the first ever #TheGlobalAwards at London’s Eventim Apollo last night. Thank you to my dear friend and mentor Ashley and his amazing team at Global for your unconditional support and trust in me. I was utterly blessed to have seen so many old friends as well as known many new friends at the event. Although I sincerely feel there is a long way for me to go before I really deserve this nomination as the Best Classical Artist, this recognition is something truly precious and encouraging to me. I shall treasure this honour not as an achievement but as my goal which will always remind and inspire me to keep working hard in my ongoing musical journey. Congratulations to all the winners and nominees, although the weather was cold last night, I felt as warm as being at home to be with all of you wonderful talents. Last but not least, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has shone the light on my musical adventure, your support and accompany are my most treasured asset and possession. Thank you all!"
