Mexican tenor Ramon Vargas wows China audience

Among the Olympic sport highlights we often fail to notice the extra-olympic events that are scheduled in the host city. In Beijing one of these events was the World-Class Superstars Concert held at the Great Hall of the People with four of the greatest classical singers in the world today. One of those four was Mexican tenor Ramon Vargas.

Singing before an audience of international politicians and influence peddlers Vargas reached deep as if representing Mexico for Olympic glory, which in a way he was. While the newspapers and news networks of the world hover over the athletes, we should not forget the range of talents that can make a people proud if only they knew he was out there representing them. Mexico is far more than a futbol powerhouse, and Vargas showed it Thursday night.
