Dear fool,

I have it in html actually. See

http://xahlee.org/Periodic_dosage_dir/sanga_pemci/Beijing_welcomes_you.html

There you will see, links, tables, coloring of background, use of
different sized fonts, embedded youtube video. Impossible with plain
text.

Btw, that chick who i thought was Eurasian, is actually Chinese.

in this vid

 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLTy2kpxOjM

she's at 1:51 . Her name is 韦唯 (Wei Wei). See

http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/韦唯
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wei_Wei_(singer)

Now, the new question of interest to me is, at 2:42 of the above
youtube link, there's a lady who sings in some kinda high-pitched
voice. I gather it's a special Chinese technique of singing. Is there
a name to this technique? (e.g. the term “soprano” isn't specific
enough. I was thinking it's some Shanghai singing technique... e.g. 周璇
(Zhou Xuan) in “花样的年华” (Age of Blossom)
(see http://xahlee.org/Periodic_dosage_dir/sanga_pemci/hua3yang4nian2hua2.html
)
)

Btw, i spend hours researching this music video. There are about some
100 stars in it. Most of them are actually Asian super stars.
