Update: November, 09/2013 - 10:45

HCM CITY (VNS)  — Your Heart, an English song composed and performed by rapper Ha Okio, has entered the first round of the 56th Grammy Awards in the category of Best Pop Performance.

Released in July 2012, the song has an urban R&B style and was mixed by musician Duong Khac Linh. Its lyrics are about relationships in modern times and people's wishes and hopes.

The 31-year-old musician said he hoped the song would become one of the final five nominees. However, he said that if it does not make it, the world will have been introduced to Vietnamese music.

An announcement of the Grammy Award's official nominations will take place in December and the awards ceremony will be held in Los Angeles in January.

Ha Okio, whose real name is Luong Ngoc Ha, is the ambassador for 350.org, a global environmental organisation focussed on climate change adaptation. ). — VNS
