Anson Hu and His Shanghai Choir Team

Since my primary interest is Anson Hu and his dream choir, I will provide only their recruitment/formation, news, and video clips in this section. If you are interested in entire episode, please see the bottom. 

What Blogmaster-DeniseJF has to say about this:
Even if you don't really care what this CCTV1's Dream Choirs is all about, it is worth watching Anson and his choir's performances. For each and every song, Anson put in a lot of effort to produce a new cover for each and every one their competition songs, even when it is not a requirement for the show. In addition, he spent a tremendous amount of work on the choreography, presentation, and coordination of his choir. Anson is not only a talented singer-songwriter behind the stage, he also knows how to shows off his talents on stage, and to put on a spectacular performance. I made my folks watch the whole show, and they were pretty amused at what Anson is capable of. 

How? It shows in his performances, see for yourself!
