Buddhist Personality : Bang Cuong

Name : Bang Cuong
Nationality : Vietnam
Profession : Singer

He is a popular singer whose songs and personality appeal to the young people in Vietnam. Last year, he was invited by a Buddhist temple to write Buddhist songs and to perform in the temple celebration. Eventhough a Buddhist, initially he was sceptical about the idea because he has never written a Buddhist song before. However with encouragement from a monk of the temple, he finally agreed to write songs for them. He composed the music while the monk helped out in the lyrics. After the performance he was happy because he received praises not only from the audience but from the monks as well. With his new found talent, he said he might compose Buddhist songs again in the future.
