Such An Inspiration! Armless Piano Player Wins China's Got Talent!

| Filed under: Music MinuteInspirationReality TV

This young man is an unbelievable inspiration.

This season of China's Got Talent featured 22-year-old Liu Wei, who lost his arms when he was 10, but refused to let that stop him from accomplishing his dream of becoming a piano player!

Check out his competition-winning performance of James Blunt's You're Beautiful (above) from Sunday's finale!

Just another wonderful reminder that there is NOTHING too difficult in life to stop you from finding your happiness!

    Okay. This made me cry. Mainly the song lyrics. Good for him though, and I hope he finds his beauty someday.

    TRUTH BE TOLD HIS VOICE SUCKED!! THAT'S ANOTHER HANDICAP HE HAS. IF HE WANTS TO BE TREATED FAIRLY LIKE ALL THE NON-HANDICAPPED PEEPS, THEN HE HAS TO TAKE FAIR CRITICISM. NOT AN OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE. PEOPLE VOTED WITH SYMPATHY AND NOT BECAUSE HE HAS TRUE TALENT. MANY PEEPS CAN PLAY THE PIANO THAT WAY AND MANY CAN SING 10X BETTER. COMPARED TO NON-HANDICAPPED FOLKS, HE AINT GREAT. DID NOT KNOW TALENT REQUIRED SYMPATHY. JUST SAYIN.

    Hate to burst people’s bubble here, but this is fake; not the part of him being armless( which is truly unfortunate) but the actual piano playing….I have been playing for 15 years and I can tell you that the notes to the song and where his toes hit the keys and when they hit the keys DO NOT match at all. Plus, he is not hitting any of the pedals?hmmmm…I’m pretty sure some might give me a thumbs down but its cool…I understand that ignorance is bliss….

    The piano intro sounds like a different song, though his English is pretty good :) It's so crazy/amazing that he can play like that!

    Re: yoyoyomama – i don't think it's fake - the timing of the sound and video are a little off, and the angle at which the camera's filming makes the distances look weird, but the keys are accurate (for the first minute, anyway - can't say if he's playing at the end because the video's taking forever to load).
    as for the pedal, i have no idea… maybe the effects were added in afterwards, when the film was being edited? or there may have been some sort of contraption set up so he could pedal and play. the video's not too clear.
    (i've also been playing the piano continuously for the past 15 years)

    This young man lost both arms when he was a kid. Many would give up on life and become bitter but he didn't go that route. Sure there are many who can sing or play the piano better, but how many has the guts to go after a dream knowing the odds against him. This is why he is an inspiration. When you think you have it bad, there's someone else who has it worse, but chose to go on instead of give up on life. People need to stop being so cynical and hate filled..

    @sayitisntso : Couldnt agree with you more



  15. 15

    I am impressed! After months of crappy news and economy this and the Chilean mining disaster miner rescue…kind of can get used to "good vibes"…



  16. 16

    I'm a piano player too, and I thought the beginning was accurate. The footage wasn't great, though.



  17. 17

    Re: sayitisntso – My thoughts exactly. This man went against all odds and achieved his dream while some ppl that have all their senses and parts of the body just give up at the first try.

    Re: xcalibur – ha! like if you could play piano with your toes or sing half as good as this man. Shut the fuck up and grow a brain you asshole!
