I often perform in different places or give benefit performances at orphanages or elderly housings. However the places may change, what always remain unchanged are the satisfactory smiles on every person’s faces, regardless of age, when they listen to my music. As if it has taken them back to the sweet old days, or as if it brings them into the future world they dreamed of.
The world we live in is not perfect, that’s why we have endeavors that we would like to achieve, and that’s why we still have space for improvements. Some people may use paintbrushes, some may use words, but I use music. I thank God for giving me this gift and cherish the opportunities that I have to bring beautiful sounds into your life. However little it may touch your heart, I believe that there are possibilities that it may give you the strengths to move forward. Hopefully, through my music, everyone can find touching moments and embrace life passionately.
