But Zhang Huimei had a whim , Decided to take their final exam in an unprecedented form ： Hold a small concert for 50 people .
After the news got out , Zhang Huimei was invited to the office by the headmaster .
The headmaster said ：“ I just want to know , Who are you ？ Since the news that you're going to have a concert came out , The phone in the school office keeps running every day , E-mail boxes are also full . Everyone is asking where to buy tickets for Zhang Huimei's concert .”
Zhang Huimei smiled awkwardly , Tell the headmaster that she is actually a singer .
When I was a child , Zhang Huimei will force the children to listen to her singing under the stage .
She forced people to go home and get a flashlight , Then sit under the stage in rows .
When she came on stage , The audience should turn on the flashlight , Create the effect of stage lighting .
When she sings , Several flashlights must shine on her face , The others have to turn against the ceiling .

In high school , Zhang Huimei spent two months , teach 100 Two peers sing 、 dance , Then he took them to Taitung City to attend the harvest festival , The performance surprised everyone on the scene .
But little Zhang Huimei has never had a star dream , She only thinks that singing and dancing is something in the life of an aborigine .

after 6 Last month's game , Zhang Huimei finally won the victory , Become the challenge arena leader of five degrees and five levels .
Unfortunately, when I came back with the trophy , Dad is dead .
