A young, famous Vietnamese singer has shared his emotions after the death of his father, the one he loved the most, in November last year.
Ha Anh Tuan has been a well-known name in the Vietnamese music scene for a long time.
Tuan, 32, stands out from the crowd in building his name as a young singer who performs high-class music, winning audiences’ affection thanks to his beautiful voice and mature demeanor.
He also fuses emotion into his performances.
His father passed away in November last year after eight months fighting lung cancer.
The bereaved singer has gone through a rough time, wondering what to do next afte his dearest relative was no longer with him.
“My childhood connects with the image of my gentle father, seeing him reading newspapers and watching news,” Tuan said, admitting that recalling these memories was one of the hardest things he has ever been through.
To him, the sense of bereavement is something that one all has to suffer, one day.
“I don’t see it as bad luck, but a milestone that forces us to grow up and become more mature,” he explained, wishing the old man had lived longer and seen his children’s success.
“I was born to a father who had always been scared of singing. But every time my performances were broadcast live, he texted his relatives and friends, telling them to watch TV. He was proud of me. He believed in his son. Faith has always been one of the most precious things that adults can give their children,” he added.
The singer shared that music brings him passion and allows him to meet so many interesting people, but it is just a part of his life.
He said it would never be the reason for him to put aside other things in life.
“Unlike myself, my father was friendly to others. He cared about our neighbors. He showed us how to behave kindly instead of teaching anything,” Tuan recalled.
The singer said he might not be friendly like his dad because of his personality, and the nature of his career.
However, he always feels lucky and happy to have had him as a father.
“I have a lifetime not only to remember my father but also to try to live kindly like him,” Tuan said.
