China’s Got Talent: Liu Wei

While we’re on the subject of America’s Got Talent, how about we take a look at one of the talented individuals who tried out for China’s Got Talent.

Twenty-three year old Liu Wei lost both of his arms in a freak accident when he was 10 years old, after he touched an electrified wire while playing hide-and-seek. Having the dream of becoming a pianist, at age 19 Wei taught himself how to play the piano with his feet.

As Wei explained to the judges, he only had two options, abandon his dream which he believed would lead to a quick and hopeless death. The other was to struggle without the use of arms and lead an outstanding life.

Watch Wei’s performance of “Marriage D’amour” below. Oh, and no worries, the video is captioned in English.
