Singing is a big part of my life. Little known fact: I (Magnus) actually sang in Carnegie Hall NYC. Perhaps I’ll tell you that story sometime. But I’ve been singing all my life whether it was at camp or at church or in the shower. I don’t have a great voice, but as long as a better singer is next to me then I can just copy them. When I went to China the first time I was so surprised to see a culture that loved singing. Who knew? From KTV to random times when people pressure foreigners to sing, it’s a singing culture. When I learned the words to “To sing a song” it needed a doodle. One of the best parts about this word or group of words is that you can say it with the Beijing accent or not.
Dialogue: The guy on the left is singing “SING A SONG!” and the guy on the left holding his ears is saying in poor Chinese “I don’t like him sing song.”
You can see our 4 year old and his cousins singing a cool Chinese children song from back in 2009!
