HCM CITY -- The music video Việt Nam ơi! Đánh Bay Covid (Dear Việt Nam, Let’s Win the War on Covid-19), a music project endorsed by the Ministry of Heath, was released today.
The song is another version of composer and singer Minh Beta’s Việt Nam Ơi! (Dear Việt Nam), a motivational song for the national football team.
The new lyrics call on Vietnamese people to fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
Nguyễn Đình Anh, head of Emulation and Commendation Department under the ministry, said that Việt Nam ơi! Đánh Bay Covid "is one of the best motivational songs to call for citizens to be together with the health sector to win the war against the pandemic."
The MV features Minh Beta, veteran actor Trung Dân, choreographers Quang Đăng and Khánh Thi, model Hà Anh and YouTubers Pom and Quỳnh Anh Shyn.
In the MV, the artists encourage people to wash their hands, wear face masks, and report about their health.
They also asked people to stop reporting fake news, stockpiling or hoarding goods, and gathering in public places.
The MV ends with images cut from top 20 videos from the video making contest “Hát Lên Việt Nam Ơi!” (Let’s Sing Together) launched by the Health Ministry.
Minh Beta worked with the non-governmental organisation Hear-Us-Now to provide sign language on the MV.
Minh said: “We hope the MV transfers its message of solidarity to individuals in Việt Nam, and sends our appreciation and gratitude to doctors, soldiers, police, journalists and scientists.”
He added: "When your motherland calls upon you, all you can do your best to stay where you are. Việt Nam never leaves anyone behind.” -- VNS
