Buffett Sings for TV Gala as China Welcomes Year of Dragon

Billionaire Warren Buffett strummed the ukulele, singer Leehom Wang played a dragon-shaped guitar and Premier Wen Jiabao visited oil workers as China ushered in the Lunar New Year.

Buffett and Wang’s acts were part of China Central Television’s annual New Year’s gala, one of the world’s most-watched programs, that aired yesterday. Buffett sang “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad” in a video clip on CCTV’s website. American-born Wang’s guitar paid tribute to the Year of the Dragon, which began at midnight to thunderous ad hoc firework displays in Beijing that echoed off the high-rise buildings.
