The 56-year-old began learning music when he was just nine and it took him 15 years to fully master it.

He now performs for people all over the world through his YouTube channel with singer Diem Huong by his side.

Dien’s YouTube channel has amassed over 168 million views and features beautiful covers of popular American and Vietnamese songs.

His talents have been shared across the world and feature remarkable covers of “Zombie” by The Cranberries, “What’s Up?” by 4 Non Blondes, “Unbreak My Heart” by Toni Braxton, songs by The Eagles, Britney Spears, and more.

The duet’s rendition of “Zombie” by The Cranberries has been viewed more than 20 million times.

Dien’s assertion that his musical ear amounts to a god-given gift is accurate, but perhaps we are the recipients of that gift more than he.
