Nụ Cười Mắt Lá (Smile of Leaves), which has been released as a DVD, contains different genres such as pop, ballad and RnB. Singer Dang Tuan Phuong (first runner-up of Vietnam's X Factor singing contest in 2016) and Meritorious Artist Hong Lien also perform on the album.
"In this album, I extend the love for my city, country and parents,” Anh said.
“Especially, I present a song dedicated to Hanoi, which is exclusively composed for me by Hoang Thang, based on a poem of Khanh Duong.
“The song is presented together with a documentary capturing the landscape of Hanoi, the city life, traditional handicraft, and people. This is my special gift for the beloved city.”
At a press conference held on Saturday in Hanoi, he also revealed information of a concert to celebrate his musical career.
With the theme of Ước Nguyện Phù Sa (Alluvium’s Wish), the concert will comprise different musical genres.
The show will take place at Star Galaxy, 87 Lang Ha Street, Hanoi on September 29 with the participation of diva Thanh Lam.
Both the concert and the DVD are directed by Van Nguyen.
Anh entered the Vietnamese performing scene when he became first runner-up of Sao Mai (Morning Star) National Singing Contest in 2011.
The singer was born in 1988. After graduating from the Ha Noi University of Business and Technology, he studied singing at the Ha Noi Art College and graduated with aplomb.
