As lyrics stream across his mobile phone screen, 26-year-old Li Longhua belts out a few of his favorite pop tunes. For this visually impaired masseur in east China's Nanchang City, singing has become the highlight of his day.


Benefiting from the special design of Changba, a singing app, sight-impaired people like Li are able to enjoy the fun of singing in a "portable solo karaoke booth.”
