Leehom Wang (caratteri cinesi: 王力宏; pinyin: Wáng Lìhóng; Rochester (New York), 17 maggio 1976) è un regista, attore, cantautore e produttore discografico statunitense. Ha studiato alla Eastman School of Music, al Williams College e al Berklee College of Music. Il suo stile musicale è noto per la peculiare fusione di tradizionali elementi musicali cinesi (come l'Opera di Pechino o la musica tribale cinese) con un arrangiamento internazionale. La carriera di Leehom Wang inizia nel 1995: da allora l'artista ha all'attivo 13 album in studio, 3 album live e le sue canzoni sono presenti in molte raccolte, con un totale di più di 15 milioni di copie vendute in tutto il mondo.[1]. È anche quattro volte vincitore del Golden Melody Award, premio taiwanese corrispettivo dei "grammys" per quanto riguarda la musica cinese.

Oltre ad essere un musicista, Leehom Wang è un affermato attore: tra i suoi film anche i recenti Lussuria - Seduzione e tradimento di Ang Lee e Little Big Soldier con Jackie Chan. Per la fine del 2010 sarà inoltre in uscita il suo primo lungometraggio come regista Love In Disguise.

Leehom Wang, infine, è da sempre un attivista ambientalista e il suo album Change Me è stato dedicato alla sensibilizzazione dei giovani. Wang è stato uno dei primi tedofori per le Olimpiadi del 2008 di Pechino, dove ha cantato durante la cerimonia di chiusura. Leehom è stato inserito nella lista dei "The 100 Most Inspiring Asian Americans of All Time" dal Goldsea Asian American Daily.[2]
