While the world is waiting for researchers to find a vaccine for the COVID-19 pandemic everyone’s lives are paused, away from their usual activities, family and friends. This is an emotional time of uncertainty but there is hope in togetherness!
The song “Needing Each Other” was a magna-production very seldom seen, with 44 singers, 29 messages and backed by a 20 piece orchestra! Imagine all of work assembling and editing every segment of video, audio, especially because each performer recorded their part of the song and message remotely.
