HONG KONG – Hong Kong singer G.E.M. recently shocked fans after falling on stage at her G.E.M. I Am Gloria World Tour in Guangzhou, China.
According to China Press, the 32-year-old, who was attired in a wedding gown with scorched marks, fell from the elevated platform after stepping on the hem of her dress.
As seen in multiple videos on Weibo, the crowd of some 30,000 people could be heard gasping in shock when the event unfolded.
A staff member quickly rushed to the singer’s aid while ensuring she didn’t sustain any injuries. Thankfully, the platform G.E.M. fell from wasn’t too high and she quickly got back on her feet to continue her performance.
Speaking briefly about the incident later in her concert, the singer said: “Over 30,000 people saw me fall there just now.
“But as long as you have light, you can still get back up whenever you fall. That’s what matters most.”
Many netizens praised G.E.M. for her professionalism while others expressed relief the singer was unhurt.
“I loved what she said about getting back up. Her words are really powerful,” said one netizen.
“This is so dangerous. I dread to think of the outcome if that elevated platform went a little higher,” another said.
“She was wearing high heels when she fell. Luckily, she didn’t sprain her ankle,” added another netizen.
