WESTPORT - A Westport teen is being hailed as the new teen idol of China.

Clay Garner began recording songs in both English and Mandarin and posting them on China's version of YouTube and Twitter about a year ago. The 18-year-old says that before he knew it, he was a singing sensation there. Garner says he was also invited to perform in China, as well as make several TV appearances.

The singer will be a senior at Greens Farms Academy in Westport and says he'll continue to make music throughout the year.
