Earlier this year, Grammy and Oscar-winning singer John Legend performed at the Hanoi Opera House for an awards ceremony, bringing hits like "You Deserve It All", "All of Me" and a captivating cover of the international anthem "Imagine" to the stage.

One of the most impressive and surprising performances by a U.S. artist in Vietnam this year was Hayd on the reality TV show competition "The Masked Singer Vietnam." No one expected that the one who sang the worldwide hit "Head in the Clouds" from behind the mask was its original creator. Hayd’s October performance on the show went viral and "Head in the Clouds" ascended the Vietnamese music charts. Previously on October 4, Hayd also did a minishow in HCMC.
