Faye to Sing ‘Legend’ at the 2010 Spring Festival Gala

Speculation among the media is that Faye Wong (王菲) will sing her good friend Li Jian’s (李健) song, “Legend” (传奇), at the 2010 Spring Festival Gala, which will be aired live on Chinese New Year’s Eve (Feb 13) on CCTV (China Central Television). The videos that I found of Li Jian performing “Legend” are of poor quality, and all had a 40-second segment where the audio was corrupted. The version below was edited to remove the talking intro and conclusion as well as the bad 40-second segment. Click here for an article, including photo and video, on Faye at Li Jian’s 29 Apr 2008 concert. Added 1.29.10: MP3 from Aiting.

    Very beautiful song indeed! Looking forward to faye’s performance!

  2. Hey, Dood. Thanks for the tip! I found a version at the Aiting site and added it to this article as an MP3. This song grows on me, especially the first part. I have a feeling Faye’s cover is going to be phenomenal!

  3. The rehearsal version of Faye’s Legend, recorded and upload by a fan who attended the rehearsal recently. Faye did not show up, so an audio tape is played during the rehearsal.


    Audio found on wongfei.org.
