Other information
MUSIC WRITER
He composed the music and wrote the lyrics for a song he released in 2018 called 'The Wings of Love'. He drew on his experience of living in a welfare home for children from age five as inspiration for the song. "I am not a professional singer, I am a professional swimmer. As I grew up receiving assistance from a lot people, I just hope I can pass on the love through my own strength. I also hope that more people will give attention to children living in poverty, children of migrant workers, and children with an impairment. Give more love, confidence and hope to these children, and make sure they can grow up healthily like myself." (music.yule.sohu.com, 24 Jan 2018)
