Yan Weiwen

Yan Weiwen, one of the top tenors in China, started out as a dancer with the Shanxi Song and Dance Ensemble at the age of 13. At the age of 22, Yan was drawn toward singing. After studying under many well-known musicians (like Zhang Tielin), Yan gradually developed his own sweet, pure, unaffected singing style. As part of the People's Liberation Army Zongzheng Song and Dance, Yan toured extensively in China, visiting soldiers at frontier posts. His songs like "Little White Poplar," "Words From the Bottom of My Heart," "The Song of One, Two, Three, Four" are extremely popular in the army, earning him the nickname, "The Army Singer." Yan's songs are also well liked by Chinese civils. Yan also sang the theme songs for over 40 TV series, like "The Last Emperor." Yan has won many prizes in national vocal contests, including the first prize in the Third National Young Singer Contest, the Golden Album Award in 1992, and the first prize of audience's favorite singers in 1993 and 1995.
