Those of the Roman Catholic faith may know that this year marks 100 years since the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Fatima, Portugal in 1917. Our Lady of Fatima, or “Mẹ Fatima” in Vietnamese, is the title of the Virgin Mary based on these apparitions. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima, Trung Tâm Asia will be releasing a “special edition” DVD titled, “Mẹ Fatima, Mẹ Nhân Ái, Mẹ Xót Thương”.
Filmed in the Asia studio, this very special show will feature musical performances focusing on the Virgin Mary, with singers including Ngọc Anh Vi, Diễm Ngân, Khánh Hà, Hồ Hoàng Yến, Thanh Trúc, Thế Sơn, Đặng Thế Luân, Diễm Liên, Y Phương and many more! This show will also feature the performances from Mai Thanh Thúy and Duy Thành, making their debut with Trung Tâm Asia. As well, the show will feature special performances from some choirs, including the St. Columban Children’s Choir, Ca Đoàn Gloria – Đức Mẹ La Vang, and Ca Đoàn St. Columban. Finally, Trung Tâm Asia has also invited a number of special guests: Reverend Hải Đăng who will be an MC alongside Thùy Dương, Most Reverend Kevin W. Vann (Bishop of Orange), Reverend An Bình, Sister Ái Liên, Linh Ca – Singing Priests, and the Sisters of the Lovers of the Holy Cross in Los Angeles.
While this DVD is definitely catered to those of the Catholic faith, all audiences may find enjoyment in the show through the music and performances from some of Asia’s brightest singers. “Mẹ Fatima, Mẹ Nhân Ái, Mẹ Xót Thương” will be released onto DVD and Blu-Ray on August 15, 2017.
