During the lockdown, ideas flowed from Auckland, Wellington, Nelson, Takaka, and Christchurch. Lyrics and music ideas were shared, then vocals were recorded from each artist’s home studios during the lockdown and lovingly mixed by Levity Beet. Some of our children “next-generation kiwi kids musicians” joined in and recorded their sweet voices. There was a real feeling of togetherness and our song is an embodiment of the reason behind the song… bringing us together, bringing hope, and reminding us that “together we can make music”!
It is our hope that this song brings energy and hope to families across the world as we fight this virus together. As well as positive messages about togetherness, the song also gives suggestions of things we can do together during this time eg. Gardening, putting on a play, etc.
This upbeat song is full of enthusiasm, optimism, and friendship. May it be the new anthem for this difficult time and may it bring a smile and a sense of togetherness across the globe.
