Deng Chao Sings the 18th Golden Rooster Awards Theme Song


This year the Golden Rooster awards, China’s main film awards, is being hosted in Nanchang, the capital of Jiangxi province. The host city is always unfixed, which   is actually very clever, because it helps boosts tourism around China, while inducing the cities themselves to help fund it.
