China's Got Talent show 2011 !! 梦中的额吉 (very moving)

A 12-year-old Mongolian boy - Uudam (乌达木 Wudamu in Chinese) who lost his parents at the age of 8 in a road accident singing the song:"Mother in the Dream" (梦中的额吉) to his mother in heaven. He seldom talks about his story but when he misses his mother, he will sing this song. Besides, he always dreams about his mother, sitting beside him. 

The song is in Mongolian, therefore, not everyone can understand the lyrics. However, his singing touched every judge and people in the hall without understanding the lyrics. He sang out all his love and thoughts to his mother. 

A touching song, performed by a boy who has a sad story, a voice comes from far Mongolia sending his thoughts to his mother in heaven. A great performance by a 12-year-old boy! He received an interesting and beautiful dream which is to invent a kind of link that just needs to drop to the ground,. The whole world will cover with green grass. One more thing to add: his mother wished to see his singing on the stage when she was alive. 

The translation of lyrics are below: 

In the stillness among the vast lands
I dream of Mother praying for me
She looks afar and gives precious milk to the heavens
As offering for my well-being
My Mother, so far away.
Stars twinkle above the grasslands while
In my dream I see Mother's caring face
As she prays to the heavens to wish me godspeed My Mother, so far away.

In my dream I see Home basking in golden sunbeam
While Mother softly sings an enchanting melody
There in the grasslands lies my everlasting home
My dearest Mother, wait for my return.
My dearest Mother, wait for my return.
