Dubbed "Song of the Century," the show focused on the harmonious relationship between the army and the people, the 80-year history of the Chinese people fighting for national independence, liberation and rejuvenation under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, and the achievements of China's reform, opening up and socialist modernization drive.
