Later Years - The Road to China3%23$$mmaarrttsitemaster2010/Imagespeople/%23TroyCoryFuzhoaNews108w.jpg
Troy Cory was among the first international entertainers and the first American entertainer to ever be allowed to perform in the People's Republic of China, beginning in 1988. In itself a notable culture-historical feat, in view of China's closed door policies of the late 70s and well into the 80s. The PRC's administrative climate in comparison is much less restrictive now and China's open door policy enables many entertainers to introduce themselves to the populace Chinese audiences.
/Imagespeople/ZeminTroyStageShanghai108w.jpg However, back in the 80s, as a goodwill ambassador representing the U.S.A., Troy Cory and his back-up dancers and singers, "The Brooke Sisters," were the first entertainers from the United States to appear in a full staged program in the People's Republic of China during the Shanghai TV Festival, and on China's National Television, viewed by over 300 million people.
TroyCainStageBW300w.jpg It was there Cory met Jiang Zemin, then mayor of Shanghai, and who later became the 5th President of the People's Republic of China.
The '88 Shanghai Concert was the beginnings of Troy's concert tours in China for the next two decades. The concerts, just to name a few, included the following cities: Shanghai, Beijing, Anshan, Tsingtao or Qingdao, Fuzhou, Longyan, Guangzhou, and Harbin, the center of the annual China Harbin Summer Music Festival. Since 1988 some of "The Brooke Sisters" included, Joey Lauren Adams, Angelica Bridges, Tina Kincaid, and Jeannie Yoou.

Troy Cory broadcast the first Webcast from Harbin, China in 2000. His second Webcast in 2004, originated from Fuzhou in southern China. That webcast featured Ron Rice, owner of the "Hawaiian Tropic" suntan products and his daughter Sterling Rice, a singer.
