WATCH: Bon Jovi Can Sing in Mandarin
Bon Jovi is sending hearts aflutter across China in a new video that features the New Jersey-born rocker crooning an achingly sweet tune in Mandarin.
Released on Chinese Valentine’s Day, the song is a cover of a ballad called “The Moon Represents My Heart.” It was made famous in the 1970s by Taiwanese singer Teresa Teng. (Hear her version here.) The release coincides with his upcoming tour across Asia that will include stops in Shanghai, Singapore, Beijing and more. According to the description on the YouTube video, this will be his band’s first time performing in China.
Hear the tune in the video above. It’s dubbed over footage of Bon Jovi recording the song in the studio.
