Remember the SAR-vivor song released in 2003? Starring the hilarious Phua Chu Kang, the rap helped ease tensions during the SARS outbreak in 2003.
In light of the recent Wuhan virus outbreak, Singapore Mandopop artists JJ Lin and Stefanie Sun came together to produce a heartwarming song for those helping out at the front lines.
The single, “Stay With You”, was released on Wednesday (29 Jan) and featured Lin singing, and Sun behind the poetic lyrics.
