On October 27, VLS successfully hosted a music night call "Việt Nam ơi, Tuy xa mà gần/ Be away but never apart" by Lee Kirby. Lee is one of our students and well-known for his soulful singing of Vietnamese songs in Vietnam.
Lee was born and raised up in England, got hooked to Vietnamese music in his first exposure to a famous Vietnamese song. Having been back to work in London for 3 years, but impelled by the passion for Vietnamese music and his love for Vietnam, Lee Kirby “sneaked” away from his work to come back to HCMC for the show. We had 100 attendants in the audience who were both Vietnamese and international expats.
They all shared that they were amazed by Lee's talent and his passion to Vietnamese music. We were happy to donate our proceed of 10.000.000 VND to Heart Beat Program by Vina Capital Foundation.
