October 11, 2010, The Malaysian Insider News

BEIJING, Oct 11 — An armless pianist who plays with his toes has won the first series of China’s version of the internationally popular television talent show, “China’s Got Talent.” Liu Wei, 23, who lost both his arms aged 10 when he was electrocuted during a game of hide-and-seek, defeated 7-year-old standup comedian Zhang Fengxi at the final on Sunday at the Shanghai Stadium, the Shanghai Daily reported.

The pianist, from Beijing, who taught himself to play the piano at age 18, impressed the audience with his performance of “You’re Beautiful,” singing and using his feet to play the piano. He also reported won over the judges by commenting: “At least I have a pair of perfect legs.” At the award ceremony, Liu was invited by Taiwan singer Jolin Tsai to be a guest performer on her world tour which gives him the chance to perform in Las Vegas for three months.

Liu Wei did not give up his life despite of losing his two arms. He accepted the reality and moved on. He used his only perfect legs to start over again and learn how to overcome all obstacles that hinder him from attaining success. His struggles and adversities make him firm, strong and steadfast. Let us emulate Liu Wei's attitude especially for those who are physically perfect. Nothing is impossible.
