Song Translation:《中国姑娘》 Gentle Woman of China by 金志文

 

So, I don’t know how many people have watched the reality talent show ‘The Voice of China’, but there was one singer that I fell in love with because of his voice, and he was able to grab a spot as a finalist in season one. 金志文 Jin Zhi Wen has one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard. He and 胡彦斌 Anson Hu are my two favorite Chinese singers, because their voices always melt my heart into a little puddle of goo every time I hear them sing.
