On August 24th, the 29th Olympic Games came to an end at the National Stadium in Beijing. At the closing ceremony, the young singer and actress, Han Xue, joined top-notch singers from across the Chinese speaking world to entertain a global audience of millions. Today we take a look at this rising star.
Han Xue was born to a family of entertainers. Her grandmother was once the leading lady in an army song and dance troupe. And her aunt is a well known musician in Canada, where she now lives.
So it was only natural for Han Xue to enter the entertainment world. At the age of 6, she enrolled at the Suzhou City Choir, where six years of training laid a solid foundation for her singing career. After leaving the choir, she won a string of top honors at singing contests across China.
