Meeting the Intellectuals in the Spring Hills | I Come From Voice and Music -- Listening to the Dream-seeking Stories of Famous Tenor Shi Yijie
The beautiful voice flies up to the sky.
And the flowing clouds stopped for it.
Fancy music sparkles our dream.
We listen and we fly with it.
His voice is like a clean and passionate spring,
jumping and flowing in the river way of music.
We can see him coming to us,
from his magical voice.
