The headliner

Susan Boyle is a YouTube sensation. She has been watched by more than 27 million people (and counting) on YouTube

From New York Times:
"Unlikely Singer Is YouTube Sensation - Miss Boyle is unmarried (and unkissed, she told the program), has no job, lives with her cat and has until now sung mostly in her local church. But she has become a heroine not only to people dreaming of being catapulted from obscurity to fame but also to those who cheer her triumph over looks-ism and ageism in a world that so values youth and beauty..."  Read the full story here

Thousand-Hand Guanyin Dance

"As long as you are kind and there is love in your heart/

A thousand hands will naturally come to your aid/

As long as you are kind and there is love in your heart/

You will reach out with a thousand hands to help others"

Guan Yin is the bodhisattva of compassion, revered by Buddhists as the Goddess of Mercy,  a compassionate being who watches for, and responds to, the people in the world who cry out for help.

About the dancers

All 21 of the dancers are complete deaf-mutes.

Relying only on signals from trainers at the four corners of the stage, these extraordinary dancers deliver a visual spectacle that is at once intricate and stirring. Its first major international debut was in  Athens at the closing ceremonies for the 2004 Paralympics. But it had long been in the repertoire of the Chinese Disabled People's Performing Art Troupe and had traveled to more than 40 countries.


The video was recorded in  Beijing during the Spring Festival this year.
