Earlier this month, musician Do Hong Quan, chairman of the Viet Nam Musicians Association, composed a song expressing his sympathy for Japan.
Titled Gui Loi Yeu Thuong (Message of Compassion), the song was written in just five days, and singer Ho Quynh Huong has been chosen as the first to sing the song. Quan said he would record the song to the background of images of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan on March 11.
He also said he hoped the song would encourage Vietnamese people to pull together in an effort to help the Japanese people. — VNS
