  1. Movies and theatrical presentations do use miming when the main character can’t sing well. So I can see that if the Chinese want to produce a flawless artistic performance than they may choose to do this. Cartoon animations use voices whose real faces are never seen, but the credits are given to the voice. From reading the article it doesn’t look like the Chinese were purposefully open in crediting the child whose voice they used and I wonder what the reason for this is. I also wonder how they handle explaining the roles to each child and what effect it has on their personal development and character. It seems each one should be acknowledged and made to feel equally valuable even though their giftings differ.

  2. An initial reaction to this report about the child’s being prohibited from appearing on an international Broadcast because of her physical appearance was one of censure. I thought it unfair and discriminatory. I wondered what the repercussions would be on the real little singer and on her substitute, as well. Is this teaching the world that skills are NOT as important as long as you look good, or are pretty or thin or your teeth are in alignment. Do we as a people or even as individuals think that way, too? Do we stake our lives, careers and relationships on looking good, being thin…let’s say…outward appearances being of utmost import… or is this just a Chinese national trait? I think not.
    When this story erupted there was national indignation about how this “unattractive” child had been treated. It gives us pause to examine our own motives concerning similar issues within our own hearts…our own attitudes and actions, especially as Christians.
    Our hearts go out to the little girl who was shunned and to the one who was “used” for ulterior motives.

  3. I hope Joel and Victoria Olsteen won’t mind my quoting them. I love this devotion (see below) and think it is so appropriate for both little girls. I thought both little girls were so cute and precious. I read the one on stage did not even know she was not singing. And, the one singing was very happy just to be singing. These things are part of life and each had a special gift to offer. So I see it as great wisdom.
    “Handpicked by God -In His love He chose us, actually picked us out for Himself as His own, in Christ, before the foundation of the world that we should be holy… (Ephesians 1:4 AMP).
    Before you were ever born, before the very foundations of the earth, God chose you. He approved you and called you His own. You may have been overlooked by people in your life; maybe you were passed up for a job or overlooked by someone whose opinion you valued; but remember, God won’t ever overlook you. In fact, He handpicked you. He chose you to be holy, or set apart, for Himself. Let that truth sink down in your heart today. You are God’s most valued possession. You are special. You are the apple of His eye. He knows everything about you; He even knows the number of hairs you have on your head. He gave you the gifts and abilities you have for a purpose. You carry great value and significance. Don’t ever loose sight of the treasure He’s placed within you. Remember, you are handpicked by God. Meditate on His goodness today knowing that nothing can change His love for you!”

    Again, I, Sara, think both girls have been highly honored by their nation and by God. May God be with them both as the walk through life and always know they are very special and God has a very special place for them in all of life. They are both so precious I just want to hug and kiss them and send them love for a job well done by them and the other beautiful children. I stand and give China a standing ovation for their wisdom.

  4. “Don’t ever loose sight of the treasure He’s placed within you. Remember, you are handpicked by God.” Thank you, Sara. God has made each one of us special, as both Yang Peiyi and Lin Miaoke, are. These two children are gifted by God, and now…. all the world can know it! They both look so happy in the above pictures!

  5. Each child, Yang Pelyl and Lin Miaoke are precious. They served their country with joy. As Sara and Needle said each child is special ad valued and loved by God. Each child is absolutely beautiful. As one little song says: All God’s Critters Have a place in the Choir, some sing low and some sing higher. Well done Yang Pelyl and Lin Miaoke.

    By Bill Staines
    All God’s critters got a place in the choir
    Some sing low, some sing higher
    Some sing out loud on the telephone wire
    And some just clap their hands, or paws
    Or anything they got.

    Listen to the bass, it’s the one on the bottom
    Where the bullfrog croaks and the hippopotamus
    Moans and groans with a big to-do
    The old cow just goes MOOOOO

    The dog and the cat pick up the middle
    While the honey bee hums and the cricket fiddles
    The donkey brays and the pony neighs
    And the old coyote howls

    All God’s critters got a place in the choir
    Some sing low, some sing higher
    Some sing out loud on the telephone wire
    And some just clap their hands, or paws
    Or anything they got.

    Listen to the top where the little birds sing
    On the melody with the high note ringing
    The hoot owl hollars over everything
    And the jaybird disagrees

    Singin’ in the night-time, singin’ in the day
    Little duck quacks, and he’s on his way
    The possum ain’t got much to say
    And the porcupine talks to himself

    All God’s critters got a place in the choir
    Some sing low, some sing higher
    Some sing out loud on the telephone wire
    And some just clap their hands, or paws
    Or anything they got.

    It’s a simple song of livin’ sung everywhere
    By the ox and the fox and the grizzly bear
    Grumpy alligator and the hawks above
    Sly raccoon and the turtle dove.

    All God’s critters got a place in the choir
    Some sing low, some sing higher
    Some sing out loud on the telephone wire
    And some just clap their hands, or paws
    Or anything they got.
