HCM CITY  Around 30 Vietnamese singers and artists from different generations have performed a new song titled Hãy Yên Lòng, Sài Gòn Ơi! (Don’t Worry, My Dear Sài Gòn) to support HCM City amid the pandemic.

The song has a nostalgic melody with lyrics reflecting people’s belief that they will soon win the fight against COVID-19. It also shows people’s trust in the Government’s response to the pandemic with the motto of “Leaving No One Behind”.

The "First Mrs World" Đoàn Thị Kim Hồng, the song’s composer, who lives in the US, said: “I spent less than a month to write the song to extend my love to my beloved hometown from Chicago.”

Hồng, who was a music teacher for more than 20 years, performed the song with singers and artists including Nguyễn Duyên Quỳnh, winner of TV music show Người Kể Chuyện Tình (Singing about Love), Nam Cường, and MC Hồng Phúc.

Teenage singers such as Bào Ngư, Bảo Ngọc and Candy also joined the song.

Due to social distancing, the music video was made at home. All artists had to record and film their parts by themselves, and then send to the producer for editing.

The MV has attracted nearly 10,000 views on YouTube. YouTube user Hồng Phúc said the song was meaningful and motivates people to fight against the pandemic together.

In August, Hồng also released a song titled Việt Nam Ơi, Ta Sẽ Thắng (Dear Việt Nam, We Shall Win) performed by singer and actor Quốc Quốc.

She said: “I hope the songs convey the message of solidarity to people in Việt Nam, and send our appreciation and gratitude to frontline forces.”

"I believe in a great victory for HCM City and Việt Nam.”

Hồng, who won Mrs Congeniality at the Mrs World 2005 pageant in India, was a member of the Mrs World judging panel in 2008, 2009 and 2011.

In 2013, she was awarded the title "First Mrs World" for her contributions to promoting the Mrs World Organisation in Việt Nam and throughout the world. -- VNS
