HÀ NỘI — As many as 100 young artists will help ring in the new year with the musical extravaganza ‘Countdown 2020’ at Hoàn Kiếm Lake on December 31.
Entitled 'Dance of Light', the event is co-held by Hà Nội People’s Committee, Việt Nam National Television (VTV) and Viettel.
“We invited young artists to perform at the event,” said one of the event’s producers Diệp Chi. “The young artists, who are creative and energetic, will inspire people."
Attending 'Dance of Light', guests will enjoy musical performances by singers Phương Uyên, Lưu Hương Giang, Ngũ Cung, Vinh Khuất and many others.
Germany-based Vinh Khuất, who gained fame after returning to compete at VTV's Sao Mai Singing Contest 2019, will debut a new composition for the event.
The event will also honour figures whose great efforts were recognised in 2019. They are scientists Hồ Quang Cua and Nguyễn Thị Hiệp; designer Công Trí; and singer Sơn Tùng.
Cua is Vice Chairman of the Sóc Trăng Province-based Union of Science and Technology Associations. He was involved in the creation of rice variety ST25, which was named the World's Best Rice at the 11th World Rice Conference in Manila.
Trí is an established designer known globally, with his creations worn by celebrities including Beyonce, Rihanna and Katy Perry.
Sơn Tùng has gained success with his Sky Tour 2019 and music video Hãy Trao Cho Anh (Give It To Me). The video is the first co-operation between the Vietnamese pop singer and American rapper Snoop Dogg. It garnered 70 million views on YouTube just a week after its launch.
Scientist Nguyễn Thị Hiệp is one of the top 100 Asian scientists. She has developed a bio-glue that seals wounds and can even be loaded with living cells or therapeutics.
The event will be aired live on VTV's Channel 1. The audience, including event-goers and television viewers, will have a chance to play a mini game with total prizes worth VNĐ1 billion (US$43,000). — VNS
