HÀ NỘI — A live show honouring motherly love and filial piety will take place on September 22 in Hà Nội.
Entitled Tình Mẫu Tử (Mother’s Love), the music show is the debut of singer Duy Cường, winner of the Bolero Idol singing contest 2018.
The show includes songs celebrating parents who dedicate their lives to their children.
It gathers famous singers of bolero such as Ngọc Sơn, Giao Linh and Thái Châu.
Singer Sơn, jury member of the Bolero Idol singing contest, said Cường is not a professional singer but he expressed a talent and passion for music.
“Cường has improved his singing technique since the contest,” said Sơn. “Cường has now become an important name in this genre.”
Though he holds a PhD in philosophy and currently works as a lecturer at the University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Cường still nurtures a passion for music. He joined the singing contest and impressed the audience and jury board.
Early this month, Cường released a music video extolling love for his mother. The video proved popular and attracted millions of views online.
In the video, Cường reflects on his family’s difficulties and memories of his childhood. His mother had to work hard to earn money to raise children and care for Cường’s father after he was involved in a traffic accident.
He made the music video and live show to celebrate the annual Buddhist festival of Vu Lan, an event that eulogises motherly love, held in the seventh month of the lunar calendar. This year it will fall on August 20. — VNS
