The MV, Sài Gòn Sống Như Tia Nắng Mặt Trời (Sai Gon - You’re the Sunshine), released on Sunday (August 1), features themes of love, unity, mercy, energy and belief. 

The song is by composer Nguyen Dinh Bao who lives in California. The artist invited Vietnamese artists at home and abroad to perform his work. 

The artists recorded and filmed their performance at home and sent their videos to composer Bao. 

Bao worked with music producer Hoang Touliver, who has had many hits, and art director Do An on production. 

Sài Gòn Sống Như Tia Nắng Mặt Trời features pop stars Cam Van, Uyen Linh and Soobin Hoang Son.

Vietnamese-American singers Minh Tuyet, Thanh Ha, Quang Dung and Ha Tran are included.  

Young rapper Gonzo, Miss Universe Vietnam 2018 H’Hen Niê and Miss Universe Vietnam 2019 Khanh Van are also featured. 

The MV includes beautiful images of HCM City and its people in daily life. 

Photos of doctors, nurses, health workers in the COVID-19 fight are also featured. 

 

The MV attracted more than 25,549 views after just one day on YouTube. 

“I wrote the song Sài Gòn Sống Như Tia Nắng Mặt Trời after learning the challenges and suffering that people living in HCM City have faced during the Covid-19 pandemic,” said composer Bao, who began his career in HCM City in 2001. 

“My song came from my deep love for HCM City and its people. It highlights the Vietnamese spirit in fighting against the virus spread.” 

Miss Universe Vietnam 2018 H’Hen Niê hopes the MV Sài Gòn Sống Như Tia Nắng Mặt Trời will connect people together during the pandemic.

“We want to send messages to encourage and praise the solidarity and bravery of people these days,” she said. 

H’Hen Nie, of the E De ethnic minority in the Tay Nguyen (Central Highlands) province of Dak Lak, works in different fields, including fashion and movies. She has been involved in several charity and community projects aimed at young women and children of ethnic groups.
