Known for his rock numbers during the Project Superstar Competition II 《绝对 SuperStar II》in 2006, Kelvin was crowned 2nd runner up in the male category.

Through a series of contest such as 《挑战麦克风》 and 《无敌一号》, “ 孙文海” became the talk of the town in China and was signed on as a host with HuNan TV (湖南卫视), the top TV station in China.
