Her song Tante (Chinese: 忐忑; pinyin: tǎntè; literally "Uneasy") is a fast-paced wordless fusion song, using various standard voices from Chinese opera along with imitations of traditional Chinese instruments. After Gong Linna performed this in Hunan Television's 2010 New Year concert, the song quickly spread in China as a viral video, gaining the nickname "Divine Comedy".
Gong is married to Robert Zollitsch.
