Joseph Liu sings the National Anthem

Joseph Liu

 Joseph Liu (刘翔俊)

A Six-year-old Chinese-American boy

 sings the American national anthem.

Wishing Eric Adams luck in the mayoral election of New York,

 and wishing all Americans to have a happy Fourth of July!


    On the evening of July 2nd, 2021, in order to begin celebrating the second Independence Day during the pandemic, the campaign team held a volunteer appreciation party at the Grand Hotel in Flushing.

At the beginning of the banquet, everyone stood up and sang the national anthem. The mayor and all the participants put their right hands over their hearts. The singer on stage was Joseph Liu (Chinese name Liu Xiangjun), a 6-year-old student from Cantiague Elementary School in Long Island.

The volunteer powerfully sang the American national anthem with Adams and all the community leaders and volunteers present.

His loud singing and confidence, despite that it was his first time singing on stage, prompted warm applause!


This is the first time that Joseph has been on such a big stage.

Under such a scene, he was not shy. On the contrary, he sang with bravery and affection like a little star, wearing a dapper suit.

 The little boy did his best to use firmness and calmness in his voice to complete his performance like a little adult.

His singing was praised and encouraged by the mayor and others there, and these praises gave Joseph more confidence. After the performance, he stepped down and shook hands with Mayor Adams excitedly.

The mayor held his hand for a long time. He was encouraged to accept his elders' recognition and encouragement.


Joseph learned traditional Chinese culture at home and learned from Western culture to dare to dream, fight hard and realize themselves in school.

 Not long ago, when his teacher asked him what he wanted to do in the future, he did not hesitate to answer:

 "I want to be president!"

On the way to school, he discussed with his father in the car about how to be president and expressed his views.

He believed that if you want to become president, you must first study hard. He can become a successful entrepreneur and philanthropist in the future and donate the money he earns to needy people to improve their living conditions.

 He thinks that this way he will gain the opportunity to earn the people’s vote to become president.

There are many opportunities to serve the people.

Although his ideas are naive, they can make us Chinese parents realize that the awareness of Chinese participation in politics can be nurtured from an early age.

The reason why the Jewish succeeded is because they know how to teach their children business and politics.

If we can give children an education that combines Chinese and Western cultures from an early age, and cultivate their sense of responsibility and participation in politics, we believe that the Chinese can also cultivate future leaders with political awareness, vision, and responsibility.


After the performance, he, his older sister Harmony Liu (刘昕格), and other volunteers who performed on stage received the volunteer certificate issued by Adams on behalf of the government.

This is his first performance on stage and the first time he has received a volunteer certificate, which made him feel pride for himself.


The mayor-designate Adams gave a lively speech
at the thank-you party.

He called for racial unity, revitalized New York’s economy, and demonstrated his understanding of Chinese culture, his friendship with Chinese, his idea of ​​urban management, and his concern
 for Chinese parents.

Educational issues are very important to the people! In an interview with Congress Network Television (ACTV), he said if he is elected mayor, he will definitely increase schools, retain SHSAT exams, and revitalize New York's economy.


Zheng Qirong, Asian Director of the Adams Campaign Office and Honorary Deputy District Mayor of Brooklyn, New York City, told ACTV:

“Adams is the most intimate mayor and the most powerful candidate for mayor. Thanks to the Chinese leaders and volunteers in the community. He has our support!”


Volunteer organizer-President of American Overseas Warehouse Corporation Ms. Sherry Wang told ACTV:

 “This time Adams successfully became the first choice, and it is largely due to the hard work of the volunteers. We see that there are more Chinese children participating in volunteer work than for any previous mayor. 

 It shows the increase of Chinese people participating in politics!
