A Heartwarming Voice From Vietnam's Got Talent-Vu Song Vu

It always excites me to see new, young talents in the Viet music industry.  When I said young, I'm talking about our new talent Vu Song Vu-discovered through Vietnam's Got Talent 2011.  As you already know, the Got Talent series first started in Britain and it had spread to many other countries--and now Vietnam (YAY!)

I really like the concept of the show, which is to embrace all kinds of talents disregarding the age, the looks, or the type of talents you might have!  I've been following up on the show and let me tell you, some contestants are quite old and some are quite young, but it doesn't matter, because they're showcasing their talents and they're happy doing it.  Oh yea, and the prize is not a small number either- The winner gets $400 million VND, which is close to $19,000 USD!

In the city of Hai Phong this week, a young talent-Vu Song Vu- was discovered.  Some might have seen this adorable little boy on Youtube before doing a cover of "My Heart Will Go On".  This time, Vu Song Vu sang "Without You" by Mariah Carey while his dad Vu Trong Thang did a pantomime performance. I haven't had a chance to see their performances but I've read that they are quite memorable.

Vu Song Vu is 12 years old this year, currently in 7th grade and he is very passionate about singing.  He likes to do covers of songs from international artists such as Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson..etc... Not long ago, he did a cover of "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion and received many positive feedbacks.  Let's watch it, shall we?

What do you think? He has quite a voice right?  I especially love it when he hits the high notes!! His voice is very clear, strong, and warm all at the same time.  And not to mention his English pronunciation! it's perfect!  Are you interested in hearing Vu Song Vu sing in Vietnamese?? I am!

You can tell how intricate this young boy's voice is through this song.  This is not an easy song to sing but Vu Song Vu did a great job at it.  I could feel his emotions through this song :)

I see a great future ahead for Vu Song Vu and I wish him the best of luck! He'll make it far I'm sure :)

Here are some more pictures from the audition in Hai Phong City:

  1. Wow, his English is very clear. I am not a fan of the song, but he does a pretty good job.
    I want to see this show! I hope someone will post it on Youtube. Hopefully, a Vietnamese Susan Boyle/ Jackie Evancho will be discovered on the show. :)
