Popular Singers Unite For Korean Economic RecoverySixty-three popular Korean singers gathered together to sing 'Now & New', a song symbolizing the desire to overcome the Korean economic crisis.
Recording companies that the singers belong to suggested that 'Now & New' be composed as a national song to unite the country. It will be publicly performed in early April. The song will inevitably be compared to the recording of 'We Are the World' by United Kingdom artists which raised money for Ethiopian famine relief.
A who's who of Korea's most popular singers, such as Kim Kun Mo, Kim Kyung Ho, and Lee Sun Hee, sang together, and Yujin Park, one of the most famous jazz violinists in Korea, played the song's opening segment.
The singers voluntarily took part in singing the song free of charge, and the supporting staff, involved in the planning and recording, did so as well.
The lyrics of 'Now & New' acknowledge that the present situation is difficult, but if Koreans unite with one mind and spirit, a bright future will open in front of them.
