Olympics Balladeer’s Voice Dubbed

12 08 2008

Actually I’m not surprised by this news. I found this article on the New York Times saying that the young balladeer, Lin Miaoke, who performed for Beijing Olympics opening ceremony, didn’t actually sing. Her voice was dubbed by a seven-year old Yang Peiyi. The music designer for the opening ceremony explained that it’s for the national interest. I would say it was also for the showmanship. People on camera need to look good, right? Well, it might hurt people’s feeling when they know this fact but I’m okay with that. After all, the opening ceremony was a blast and blew everybody all around the world away.

Anyhow, check out the article on the New York Times for more details.
