The exotic allure of Jade’s magic stems from her Chinese heritage and her childhood on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Jade took the male-dominated world of magic by storm in 1990, when she won first place in the International Brotherhood of Magicians’ World Magic Competition. She was given the organization’s coveted Gold Medal of Magic, a prize awarded only a handful of times in the competition’s 20-year history.

To date, she remains the sole woman to receive this honor.

Watch Jade perform.
