In Honor of Viet Khang

Viet Khang’s music is so powerful and moving that it would be a crime (no pun intended) not to share it with all of you.  It is unfortunate that not all of us can understand his music, as Viet Khang’s songs are performed in Vietnamese.  Do not fret however, for Vietnamese American music producer Truc Ho feels your pain, and was gracious enough to alleviate this language barrier with English subtitles for his version of “Who Are You?”.

Truc Ho did a good job on this interpretation of Viet Khang’s song, assembling a group of musicians under his label to help him sing.  Performing with Truc Ho is Dan Nguyen, Mai Thanh Son, Quoc Khanh, and Doan Phi.  The artists performed the song passionately, enough to bring justice to Viet Khang’s music.  Plus, it comes with English subtitles!  So even if you are not a fluent speaker of Vietnamese, you too can understand the powerful message Viet Khang is aiming to deliver.

The video briefly features a speech given by Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez.  Ms. Sanchez has done much to help represent the Vietnamese community in the state of California, and continues to do so today.  Frequently, the Congresswoman has pushed the U.S. government to take a tougher stance on the human rights situation in Vietnam, proving herself to be a valuable ally to the Vietnamese community overseas.

I’ve said this before and will continue to say it.  Viet Khang is a talented and courageous man.  Because of him, not only are the Vietnamese abroad learning about the Communists, but the people within are becoming aware of their crimes as well.  He knew that performing his music would get him arrested, but he went through with it nonetheless.  As a leader, and as a patriot, Viet Khang is not afraid to die.  He has showed us that he is willing to sacrifice himself for the country, something that the entire Communist Party does not have the guts to do.

Viet Khang has more courage in his voice than all 3,000,000 members of the Vietnamese Communist Party combined.  For this remarkable reason, I continue to castigate the Communist Party, and commend the courage and honor of Viet Khang, the great singing patriot of Vietnam.  Like the heroes before him, Viet Khang has demonstrated what one courageous act can do for humanity.  Now think, what would happen if every single citizen came together, as one unitary force, to liberate Vietnam from the grips of these sordid criminals who call themselves the Communist Party.  If one man was able to drive the entire system insane, imagine what we could do together.  The possibilities are boundless, let’s stand together.

  1. Thank you, Truc Ho, Quoc Khanh, Doan Thi, Dan Nguyen and Mai Thanh Son for all the efforts to save Viet Khang. We expect to see more and more singers, professional or not, loudly sing this song. Now is a very good time to motivate all the Vietnamese, oversea or inland into a great movement against VC. I envision a large scale demonstration in a near furture. For this, not only Viet Khang but all other patriots will be freed either.

  2. We need to stand up for justice and righteousness to those who are suffering persecutions for the religion, race and opinions.

  3. Thank you for all of you who stand up to bring the truth to us and bring awareness to our Americans and the world.

    Tôi vô cùng cảm phục anh Việt Khang, dù sống trong hoàn cảnh bạo tàn, độc tài độc àc của Việt cọng, anh vẫn không sợ Việt cong bắt bớ, bỏ tù. Nghe anh hát mà tôi muốn khóc vì quá cảm động. Nghĩ lại bản thân tôi so với anh tôi cảm thấy hổ thẹn vì không dám can đảm hành động như anh.

  5. Thank you to all Vietnamese people n anh Viet Khang your song was touch my heart. Hope anh Viet Khang will be free soon. God bless vietnamese people n country too

    • Nguyen Xuan Phuong Says:

      Dear no name,
      Don’t mind if I ask about your nationality. If you are Vietnamese,
      you can listen to the two songs of Viet khang. Even you are not,
      you still read the sub-title in English on the screen beside the
      images of many police men beating, arresting people without
      mercy. What’s the people doing ? They just opposing the China’
      invasion their country. How’s about Viet Khang ? He is crying out
      to his government by many questions thru his voice, his songs.
      Why’s he arrested? Why’s he beaten ? The Viet Nam communists, are they still Vietnamese? They just are the cowardly dogs born who bow out to China to kill their own people. Viet Khang is a hero. He is in jail now and we don’t know
      what’s his condition, where’s he…
      I hope you get some information from me about Viet Khang and
      answer your question.

  16. Nguoi Viet Nam khap ca nam chau deu nghe tieng goi tu day long cua Viet Khang.

  17. Nguyen Xuan Phuong Says:

    In parallel to the campaign of saving Viet Khang, is it a good ideas
    to boycott all China products ? May be including Viet Nam ?

    • Yes. Vietnamese people should boycot all chinese made products. I have stopped buying chinese made products when they pirated and killed our innocent fishermen in the southeast asia sea. Thanks for reminding.

  18. I cried everytime I listen to this song even I am strong enought to control myself. Thanks to Truc Ho and Asia Entertainment group.

  23. Viet-An Says:

    Thank you so much Mr. Truc Ho. Your dedication to Viet Khang will forever inspire many more people to join forces and fight for our human rights. Because you have been a “true” support to fight for our country’s freedom, for that, I will always be there to support your music to spread the words out. Screw PBN, they only look at a busines profit point of view – as you can see, they import the singers from VN to support their own production – what a traitor to their own people. We will fight until our last breath to free the people from VN who has been suffering for many years. Anh Viet-Khang, hang in there – your safety will always be in our prayers. Free Viet Nam and Free Tibet !!!

  24. Viet-An Says:

    Such a powerful song! I am so emotionally touch by the lyrics and its meaning that only fools would ignore such calling out as this. He is a true hero under my eyes. Please post and send out messages to the Vietnamese abroad for ways to help Viet Khang. Please save this man – FREEDOM FOR VIETNAM!!!

  25. Chinese/ Vietnamese American Says:

    I think it wrong going through a country of Vietnam and make justice. Who can tell who is who they all Vietnamese, China has nothing to do with this so don’t bring up information that are false information. They new the rules of there country to not say anything! We have much bigger fish to Fried in our own country like the USA. We don’t want another interfering with another country it’s their own personal business. This is the 21st century and what is the past is the past let it go! We might not able to bring our love ones from the war! But we can be human and let that idea of revenge go! We have international students here in The USA, Communist or not they are still humans and need to be treated with respect. Our four farther’s of Vietnamese war is over. What you see on video is just people who does the crime and won’t admit their
    crimes! The more you make and protest this, It just make things worse and it cause us to be separating our love ones. I have aunts
    and uncles who is my cousins from the north of HCMC ( Ho Chi MInh City). They are great people, their nothing wrong with that! But from watching this tv and seeing this on tv your tv’s show is bad and it breaking families from seeing their own! And It brain washes my parents from avoiding to see their siblings or families.

    It makes you look good and feel good, when you want revenge Huh? Get a rival and protest our kind! Something that happen long time ago? Please this is the new area and people change! You just need to let those things from past go! My dad side died in the war, Viet Khong rapped my aunt and toss them in the lake. But she died and she watching over us, everyday. Would she be happy on the other side, if we go and take revenge on those people? No!,

    • Chinese/ Vietnamese American Says:

      Yes , Chinese products are bad, but our government is bad as well for buying them in the first place! They should know and stop it before coming overseas! Instead they let it come because it corps. and the Business of marketing! Also, USA still owed China a lot of money. So our USA is just as bad as they are because we owed China big money!

  26. Chinese/ Vietnamese American Says:

    For Vietnamese that are here, who became a citizens and live freely here. I think you should be happy and live a good life! If you was against your own people, Go back and protest in your own country! Don’t make us Americans get involved and get killed. 500,000′s have died before in the Vietnam War and causing 100,000 of the US Solders injured and left USA Solders here living in nightmares. Vietnamese is already in Vietnam is already happy, even if they lived in a Communist Country, Why ruin their happy families ! Why not ,you go back and change Vietnam yourself! As long as Vietnamese Communist don’t take our land and soil , We Americans don’t have to worried, because it not ours born country.

    Even if we did go step in their country, Our USA Soldiers wouldn’t know who is who. The trouble would repeat itself In American history! Why ? It’s because Vietnamese communist and Vietnamese citizens themselves look alike. We Americans Can’t tell who is who. Let their country solve their problems and if we interfere it makes it’s even worse because we can’t tell whose is who? It’s like playing a game Ying and Yang.

    Of Course their government wouldn’t let us interfere with their government! We take matters in our own hands and let the Vietnamese here do their job! If they want freedom for their country, let them go back and fight their war! Or let them speak up for their rights. But Don’t get us Americans or Vietnamese American Involved It would make things worse!

  27. Chinese/ Vietnamese American Says:

    The cause of Viet Khang arrest is because he knew if he did his actions he would be arrested. Then why do it ? It’s because he is not a coward and did not escape from Vietnam! I double Dare you Truc Ho if your so great man and make rivals to protest, Stop sitting on your Show and go back to your country and take actions, Stop bringing Americans in to this. “We have bigger things to fried ! ”
    Our Economy is on the down hill, people are being layoff of work ?
    Schools and collages budgets cuts, being taxed and etc…
    You should be thank-full for your luck of staying here in the USA!

  28. Yes we need stand up we need to tell for the World to know the goverment of vietnam look like animal look like go evil and us voice must be strong Please let the President Barac Obama known Vietnam country not freedom and not Democracy and must be destroy them (Communist)and Leave Viet Khang out prison beside Viet Khang had more people same case as Vietkhang freedom all of the people live at vietnam got big problem because they like Democracy and the vietnam communist very scare who are loved their country the goverment of vietnam sold Vietnam Country for China already I can not believe that right now Vietnam Country Gone China bought Vietnam already

  29. 1000 years ruled China in Vietnam.100 years French. And after more than century they still interested about VN.That president I would called in vietnamese “nhai dung len lam nguoi”…hahaha.I’m grewen up for 30 years ago in Germany.It kills my heart to know about this big theme.I had a long journey as boat people when I was 7,5 years old.I’m very proud still can speak, read and write VN.In the past we brought a lots of victim. Wasn’t it enough?And now just one person sold his own country encluding the nation. What a dog! I don’t know what to say.My heart will never end to bleeding for the people in Vietnam and Vietnam self. I will pray for anh Viet Khang!You are a hero for us and you make us proud.

  30. You really make it seem so easy along with your presentation but I to find this topic to be actually something which I think I’d never understand. It seems too complex and extremely extensive for me. I’m taking a look ahead to your next put up, I’ll attempt to get the grasp of it!

  31. I do agree with all the ideas you’ve offered for your post.
    They’re really convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless,
    the posts are very short for beginners. Could you please lengthen them a bit from next
    time? Thanks for the post.
