Voice of China Season 3 Vigi Li

The Voice of China attracts 120 million TV viewers and 400 million internet users. Vigi Li was only 14 when she went on the show and won the judges hearts. However, she was cut from the program because of her age. Two years later, she returned and placed in the top 16. Now at the age of 17, she was invited to hold concerts at churches in California this past month.

Vigi Li started to learn piano when she was 4 years old. At the age of 5, she started to sing hymns with her dad. Her angelic voice touched the audiences’ souls. She learned how to play the guitar and drums. At the age of 12, she began to write her own songs, inspired by the likes of Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars, both singer-songwriters. At 15, she produced her first album called, “Even If You Fail.”

Her amazing journey to becoming one of the youngest contestants on the Voice of China came with its own set of difficulties, which she conquered with her faith in God. In the very first season of Voice of China, her crystal clear voice moved three of the judges to hit the button and swivel around. However, her segment could not be broadcasted because she was too young at that time. She returned to Voice of China Season 3, and continued into the semi-finals because of a chance to compete in a revival round.
