HCM CITY – A hundred of Vietnamese singers, actors, MCs and models recorded a song together to cheer on the Việt Nam National Football Team at the region’s biggest sports event, the 29th SEA Games in Malaysia next week.
Những Ngôi Sao Sân Cỏ (Football Stars) is a composition of songwriter and đàn bầu (a Vietnamese one-stringed zither) player Hà Chương. It is produced and mixed by DJ Wang Trần.
The song contains a mesage from Vietnamese fans encouraging all players to play well and bring home the gold medal.
The work’s beat is a mixture of Latin rhythm and electronic dance music. It also has a few sections of đàn bầu played by Chương.
The song was sung by dozens of famous singers, such as Phương Thanh, Thanh Thảo and Nguyễn Phi Hùng, along with bands of MTV, Lip B and VMusic.
MCs Thanh Bạch and Quốc Bình and models Tiến Đạt and Đức Vĩnh also joined in the performance.
“I believe the song will help our players relax and motivate them to win the champion at this year’s SEA Games,” said Wang Trần, who has been DJing for 15 years and won several international prizes. He launched his first world tour through 20 countries in May.
The music video for the song was directed by Huỳnh Phúc Thanh Nhân, who made several successful television shows such as Người Hùng Tí Hon – a Vietnamese version of the American talent show for children Little Giant, and Ca Sĩ Giấu Mặt – Vietnamese version of a South Korean singing show Hidden Singers.
The video was filmed last week at the Mống Bridge in District 1 and Hồ Xuân Hương Gymnasium in District 3 with participation of all the artists and 100 dancers and 100 university students.
It is expected to be released a day before the opening match of Việt Nam National Football Team on August 15. VNS
