New Chinese Leader is Husband of Legendary Singer
After much back room negotiating, backstabbing and intrigue, China is about to announce the leadership group that will run the country for the next decade. Emerging at the top is Xi Jingping. Remember the name because you’ll be hearing it a lot.
What’s interesting is that up until now, Xi’s wife has been the famous one. Peng Liyuan is a legendary singer known to hundreds and hundreds of millions of Chinese. Her big thing has been a New Year’s Eve broadcast on state television.
Ms. Peng is 49 years old, a soprano and is a civilian member of the People’s Liberation Army. She also has serious political connections. Obviously.
Here’s one of Ms. Peng’s video hits. It’s called, erm, “Laundry Song.”
