Uudam (Wudamu in Chinese) is from Hulunbuir, northeast Inner Mongolia, PRC.
A member of the Hulunbeier Children's Choir, Uudam is best known to date for his moving performance of the Mongolian folk song "Mother in the Dream" on China's Got Talent in 2011. This song is especially poignant for Uudam because he lost his mother due to a road accident when he was eight years old. (Two years later his father also died in another accident, and Uudam became an orphan; he is now looked after by the choir directors who became his godparents and by his relatives). The song is in Mongolian; even though most could not understand the lyrics, Uudam's singing touched all the judges and the audience in the hall. He sang out of his love and thought to his mother.
Uudam The Men with Blue Dots also known as peuple a la tache bleue is a 2012 drama film starring Uudam.
A film regarding being born a Mongol, vanishing cultures and traditions, and the identity of the Mongols. The movie is about a boy who hasn't even ventured outside of his own village yet is now going abroad to a far away foreign country, ever carrying the humanity and culture that his Granddad told him to keep, and understanding how happy it is to live in one's home country.
