HÀ NỘI — Singer Phạm Phương Thảo has released her DVD-CD album called Tri Ân (Gratitude) to pay tribute to fallen soldiers on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of War Veterans Day, which falls on July 27.
Thảo had nurtured this idea for years and she spent a year completing her album. The album features eight songs, including Mẹ Việt Nam (Vietnamese Mother); Mười Đóa Sen Thơm (Ten Fragrant Lotuses) to pay tribute to the young unmarried girls who helped with the logistics work at Đồng Lộc, a strategic T-junction road that was heavily bombed by American forces during the war in Việt Nam; and Ân Tình Mẹ (Paying Tribute to Mothers).
“We have devoted ourselves for this album because it is our way to pay tribute to soldiers and mothers whose sons dedicated their youth to the country,” Thảo said at a press conference last week.
The music video features footage of all the three regions of Việt Nam, with support from three directors - Phạm Đông Hồng, Việt Hương and Dương Lan Hương.
Phạm Phương Thảo was born in 1982 in the central province of Nghệ An and won "Favourite Singer" at the Sao Mai Television Singing Competition in 2003. The singer is well-known for the folk music genre. — VNS
