Paul Teska's Story
Thursday, 24 April 2014 20:20
Is it the joy derived from singing tags late into the night? Is it the satisfaction of delivering a well-executed competition set? Or is there something more? Is it actually about those who sit on the other side of the footlights?
For Paul Teska, this perspective became a dying man's passion, a mission to share the gift of singing with as many people as possible in what little time he has left. The Harmony Foundation hopes this story of life, legacy, mortality, and the enduring gift of music will both uplift and inspire you.
This video was captured and edited by Shawn York for Harmony Foundation.

Who is Wang Leehom?
Chinese superstar Wang Leehom may not be a household name in the States, but rest assured he is a widely recognized figure in Chinese pop culture. He is a Chinese-American singer-songwriter, music producer, actor, and film director. Known as the "King of Chinese Pop", Leehom has repeatedly revolutionized the Chinese pop music scene with his evolving blend of pop, rock, jazz, hip-hop, R&B, classical, and traditional Chinese music ranging from aboriginal folk music to Beijing opera. The best-selling Mandarin-language musician of his generation, Leehom came to prominence as a teen idol at the age of 19 and has since released 15 solo studio albums and contributed to dozens more.
