My chosen song for this week is the closing soundtrack for the Chinese drama – Beautiful Reborn Flower.
“Rising Above” by Shang Wenjie.Shang Wenjie, also known as Laure Shang, is a Chinese singer-songwriter and composer. She was born on December 22nd, 1982. In 2006 she took part in the third season of a Chinese singing contest known as Super Girl and emerged first place. She also won Best Female Singer for the 2011 MusicRadio China TOP Charts Awards. Shang Wenjie can also speak fluent French and English. Her major in university was French.
At first, this song was hard to find, but thankfully after Beautiful Reborn Flower aired for about two weeks, a few people started posting the soundtracks.
I absolutely love this OST. It’s entirely in English, so from the first moment I heard it, I deeply felt every word Shang Wenjie sang. It’s such an empowering and beautiful song. I found myself lingering at the end of each episode just to hear more of “Rising Above.” This is my first time hearing anything from Shang Wenjie, and she completely embodied the lyrics of this song. Her voice holds so much emotion and power. She literally sounds like she’s soaring, and that gives the listener some sense of hope.
“Rising Above” has quickly become one of my favourite drama soundtracks, so I hope you all enjoy listening to it as much as I do.💕💕💕
