Singing red songs is becoming a new fashion storming all over China. As the 90th anniversary of CPC's founding is drawing near, concerts and singing competitions featuring red songs can be seen in many cities, and some of them have an unbelievable attendance.

108 choirs from all across China gathered in the Chongqing Olympic Center for a Red Song Feast. The total number of participants came up to over 40-thousand, making it the largest singing event for this occasion.

Wang Li, singer, said, "As one of the professional performers, I think it's necessary to pass on the spirit to the younger generation through our effort."

In Changchun city of Northeast China, passionate tunes can be heard almost everywhere. The open-air singing competitions of organizations and companies have drowned the city in the sea of inspiring red songs.

In Aletay of Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, there are parents and sons, husbands and wives in the choir of Xinjiang Production and Construction Corp. The family-tied singing event has created an atmosphere more positive than ever.
