Gary Cao (born July 9, 1979 in Malaysia), also known as Cao Ge is a Malaysian singer.
He received his early education in Canada. He went on to continue his studies at Auckland University, New Zealand when he was 16.

In 2006 he won Hong Kong TVB's Newcomer Singer award and has since released 2 albums. His big break occurred with the release of his Mandarin version of "Superwoman", a song initially recorded by Karyn White. Cao wrote some chart-topping songs in Taiwan sung by S.H.E, Cyndi Wang, and Aaron Kwok.

In a recent interview with MTV, Cao admits (fluently in English) that he is a shy guy who doesn't express himself well through words but well enough in the songs he sings. His early influences came from admiration of Stevie Wonder and R Kelly.

He is one of the rising singers that has been compared to David Tao and Jay Chou.
