“I came from fortuity, like a grain of sad dust. Nobody seen to know my frailty.Where did I come from, Where's my heart going. Who is calling me, waiting for me. Heaven to earth is wide, but it's hard to walk through.
I see the world full of frustrations and toil. How much love I have,
how many tears I'll weep. Get the heaven to know I'll never give up.
I'll never give up. My thankful heart. Grateful to you..."   At 10 a.m. on March 8th, The singing filled with love came out from Xiamen Olympic museum.
