Among the musical's highlights is the inclusion of the beloved Chinese song Xue Xi Lei Feng Hao Bang Yang (Learn From the Role Model Lei), composed by Wu Hongyuan and the late Lou Shengmao (1928-2007), adding a nostalgic touch to the production.

The genesis of Lei Feng's enduring legacy dates back to March 5, 1963, when Chairman Mao Zedong penned an article in the People's Daily commemorating the young soldier, who tragically passed away at the age of 22 in 1962. This event led to the establishment of "Learn From Lei Feng Day", honoring Lei as a role model embodying qualities such as selflessness and dedication.
