Ha Hui, image ambassador of Hanzhong, a city in northwest China's Shaanxi Province, will sing for the 100 representatives at the UN Women's Conference, to be held at the UN headquarters in New York City on March 5.

"I hope that my performance will show the world the gentleness, kindness and elegance of Chinese women," said Ha. She revealed that classic characteristic features of Chinese music would be performed, including songs adapted from ancient poems like Meng Jiao's You Zi Yin (Song of a Wanderer) and Li Shen's Min Nong (Sympathy for Farmers). Classic masterpieces including Tea Scent and Women's Virtue will also be showcased to the group of women representatives from all over of the world.

Ha Hui, a famous singer born in 1977 in Hanzhong, has been devoted to classical music since 2008. She initiated New Yayue (“elegant music”), a musical form whereby traditional Chinese masterpieces of poems and prose are transformed into songs reflecting the virtues and courtesies advocated by ancient Chinese people. Pure and elegant, New Yayue is supposed to help cultivate people’s courtesy and virtuousness as well as to enlighten them through music. In 2008, Ha was appointed as Ambassador of Chinese Culture.
