HCM CITY — Well-known composer Nguyễn Văn Chung of HCM City is working on a new TV game show for children and teenagers produced by Việt Nam Television. 

Chung will appear as a music director for Super Idol Kids, which aims to seek and encourage children aged 4 to 15 to develop their talent in music and dance.  

“The show will also offer opportunities to help its participants and audiences improve their love for the arts,” said Chung, who has 18 years of experience in the industry. 

Super Idol Kids has a jury of skilled artists, such as choreographer Lâm Vinh Hải and singer-song writer Trịnh Thanh Bình. 

It will also feature Miss Universe Việt Nam 2019 Hoàng Thuỳ as a trainer. 

Casting began last month in Hà Nội and HCM City and will end this month. 

The reality show is expected to be broadcast on VTV9 channel in August.

 “Through the show, Super Idol Kids, I wanted to introduce and expand Vietnamese music and songs for children,” said Chung, who recently received a copyright certificate for his 300 songs for children given by the Copyright Office under the ministry of culture.

Chung has worked to bring more suitable songs for children, containing lessons on life and family. 

He issued his first songbook for children, titled 100 Songs for Children, in mid-2017.

His new songbook will be released this summer. 

The book will consist of his popular children’s songs, including 12 Con Giáp (12 Zodiacal Animals), Bài Hát Ru Của Mẹ (Mom’s Lullaby), and Bố Ơi Kể Chuyện Con Nghe (Dad, Tell Me a Bedtime Story), about childhood, family, friends, school and country.

It will include beautiful pictures and sheet music to help young readers learn how to sing and play instruments.

The work will come with a CD featuring the voices of popular child singers such as Bào Ngư, Thư Kỳ, Bảo Ngọc and Nhã Thy, and students from music clubs at cultural houses for children.  VNS
