After forcing myself to sit down and watch the abysmal ‘talent’ show that is BGT this weekend, I was reminded of a song that has become one of my favourites since it was sung on the Chinese version of the show by a young Mongolian boy named Uudam. You may have seen or heard his performance as it did go viral online soon after being broadcast. If you haven’t, you can watch the original performance here.
I always ‘judge’ music in other languages on its ability to make me feel something before I even know exactly what is being said. This the case with Mother in a Dream.
