Lim Hyung-joo, Asia's first popera tenor with a "voice of heaven"

Lim Hyung-joo was named one of the world's five most influential popera tenors by BBC Music Magazine, and one of the world's top three popera tenors by CNN, being compared to Jose Carreras, the youngest of one of the Original 3 Tenors.

The INNERview crew went to the Korea UNESCO House to meet the world-renowned popera tenor, who was appointed as the Goodwill Ambassador for Peace and Arts for the Korean National Commission for UNESCO in 2014. He also remarked that it has been 5 years since he was awarded the United Nations Peace Medal.

Lim Hyung-joo made his debut at the tender age of 11 in 1998, performing "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" on "Lee So-ra's Propose." He said that it brings him back the delightful memories and ambitions of his younger days whenever he sings this song on stage.

As Asia's first popera tenor, Lim Hyung-joo has been gaining recognition worldwide, but behind the glitz and glam, he had his fair share of struggles and hardships, being constantly scrutinized by the public and critics for doing something new.

He became the first Korean to perform at all three auditoriums of Carnegie Hall, and has held vocal recitals all over the world. During the interview, he spoke of his unforgettable performances as well as three role models who had a strong influence on him.

He has also been involved in philanthropic activities, serving as ambassadors for charity organizations and making donations for good causes. During the interview, he performed "A Thousand Winds," which he dedicated to the victims of the Sewol-ho Ferry disaster and the bereaved families. The song topped the digital music charts, and he donated the entire proceeds for the victims.

Join us this week on The INNERview to meet Lim Hyung-joo, whose dream is to be an approachable vocalist who communicates with the public with his music.
