NEW MUSIC: ANDREA BOCELLI, LEI JIA & LANG LANG | FOREVER YOU AND ME

World-renowned Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, superstar Chinese pianist Lang Lang and famous Chinese soprano Lei Jia have released a new song, "Forever You and Me," a musical gift to the Beijing Winter Olympic Games, in collaboration with the Beijing Organising Committee for the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games and Beijing Federation of Literary and Art Circles. "Forever You and Me" is sung in both Chinese and English by Andrea Bocelli and Lei Jia and features Lang Lang on piano. The song was inspired by the Beijing Winter Olympic Games and features distinguished artists from China, who are hosting the Olympics this year, and Italy, who will present the Olympic Winter Games in 2026. "Forever You and Me" was composed by Shu Nan with lyrics by Zhang Heping. Fourteen years ago, in 2008, Beijing presented the Summer Olympics and was staging the Winter Olympics this year – becoming the first city in the world to host both the Summer and Winter Olympic Games. Andrea Bocelli said, “It is a great joy for me to collaborate with two extraordinary Chinese artists – the soprano Lei Jia (who was a happy surprise for me) and the pianist Lang Lang: a dear friend, with whom making music is always a moment of great artistic enhancement. As an artist, I believe it is my responsibility to be able to speak to everyone’s heart. It was an honour to be able to give my modest contribution to the grandest sports event on earth.”
