When singer Duong Quoc Hung received the love of overseas Vietnamese, he was moved: "I am very happy to come to the Czech Republic in this second time to bring my singing to overseas Vietnamese. I sang various kinds of music, but songs written about homeland have been instilled in me since my childhood. This fills me with pride, especially when performing in Europe and the Czech Republic. I will continue to sing this kind of music and mix it with a newer style in order to reach a wider range of audiences, particularly young people".
