Han Hong is a Chinese singer renowned for her high-piercing Tibetan songs. She is now the deputy head of the Cultural Troupe of the Air Force of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army. On September 3rd and for the first time since receiving her new appointment. Han met her new colleagues and fans during a celebration of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.
Han’s work "Heaven's Road" made her a household name in China. Following this fascinating road, Han turned into a military singer and a soldier of art. The first time she met with her Air Force colleagues on the stage, she could barely contain her excitement. The immensity of the soldiers’ applause and affection was overwhelming.
Han is not only an outstanding singer and songwriter, but also an active political figure. She is a member of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, and a permanent member of the National Youth Federation. She has also been dedicated to the events of public interest. Last year, after the devastating Sichuan earthquake in May, Han visited the disaster-hit regions repeatedly to support the reconstruction work and called for public donations for the local children. Because of her highly respected image in the entertainment industry, Han was appointed as Love and Charity Ambassador several times.
Han used to be an ordinary soldier before she was discovered by famous folk singer Li Shuangjiang and went to study music at the PLS Art Institute. However, she failed to join the military art troupe after graduation. It might offer some comfort that she could be specially recruited now as deputy head of the cultural troupe.
