The rumored wet market diva “Wet Market Sweet Auntie’s” soul music concert, LIVE shocking version!

I arranged to meet with a friend to go buy groceries, and at the same time go see what makes the rumored wet market diva so special. I heard that she has never learned English and never received any formal singing training yet has a naturally good voice. Luckily, we finally found her! Everyone watch, and see just what happens…especially want to remind netizens to hold their jaws while watching this video, lest it drop!!!

This video has been viewed over 6.3 million times on Youku so far after 5 days.

This auntie is going to be popular for a few days. 搞笑


Very obvious that a group of people were found to be the audience, arranged in advance with the intent to film. The acting of those audience actors were too lousy, especially that little fatty standing in the back wearing the suit and glasses, those few “very good, very good” were also too fake.


Yet another Auntie Susan [Boyle]!!


Extremely approve! Truly not bad. Even knowing how to sing in English, truly impressive. [I] support the auntie.


Wet market becoming a concert hall, truly too talented, us ordinary common people now have free concert to listen to! Haha!!!


She must be Christian. Our church has many choir aunties with this level [of singing ability], with some even high. The first song is Amazing Grace, the second song is Hallelujah (praising God meaning), How Great Thou Art, all Christian songs. If the auntie can explain that clearly to everyone, then it would be even better.


Just by looking at it you can tell she’s had special training, too fake.


赞Truly talented, why aren’t there people going to help promote this auntie? If someone were to go foster her, she would definitely become famous, and that would be powerful.


This is the power of the media.
If you yourself were to suddenly see someone singing like this in a market, what kind of reaction would you have?

This story about this singing auntie also appeared on television news. Why do you think it has become so “popular”? Has it really become “popular”?

Fauna is a mysterious young Shanghainese girl who lives in the only place a Shanghainese person would ever want to live: Shanghai. In mid-2008, she started chinaSMACK to combine her hobby of browsing Chinese internet forums with her goal of improving her English. Through her tireless translation of popular Chinese internet news and phenomenon, her English has apparently gotten dramatically better. At least, reading and writing-wise. Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.
