The link leads to a Facebook post of KZ's agency Cornerstone Entertainment, Inc. with a note that said, "We are proud to share with you KZ's version of 'Say Something' for Singer 2018 episode seven. KZ prepared a different song for this episode and the arrangement for that song came from the Philippines. Hunan Broadcasting System (HBS) decided last minute to change the song because they felt the song is not well known in China and asked KZ to perform 'Say Something' instead since this is one of the songs she performed during the audition that really left a mark on them. We had to fly Macoy (her guitarist) last minute for this and she only got to rehearse this song on the day of the recording but still delivered an awesome performance."
KZ also received a Tweet from the original performers of the song, A Great Big World. The New York-based musical duo said, "Wow. @KZOfficial. Wow."
KZ is set to continue on with her weekly performances on the Chinese talent show. We're proud of you, KZ!
