The concert Thanks for the Extraordinary will call on all individuals and organisations to contribute support in finance, materials and spirit, which are all seen as important for frontline forces fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event’s organiser expects the concert to spread positive emotions and encourage people to support frontline forces with practical actions, and cheer up those working day-and-night to protect the lives of millions. 

Famous artists performing include saxophonist Tran Manh Tuan who last month  joined a performance at the HCM City’s Field Hospital No 3 to cheer up health workers and COVID-19 patients.  

Veteran singing couple Cẩm Vân and Khắc Triệu, together with their daughter singer Cece Trương, will also take part in the online concert.

American singer Kyo York, who has been living in HCM City for the past decade, will sing a tribute to the city which he regards as his second home.

The Hanoi-born rapper-turn-singer Hà Lê, winner of the Impressive Artist Award at the Viet Nam Television’s VTV Awards 2020, will also perform on Sunday night.

 

Rarely shown in the spotlight after winning The Voice: Kids Vietnam in 2015, the young singer Trinh Nguyen Hồng Minh will also perform at the special concert.

The event will also feature singers Đức Tuấn, Nguyen Phi Hung and Ta Quang Thang.

The concert will features optimistic songs such as The Aspiration, Proud of the Soldiers in White Shirts, The Silent Warriors, The Little Extraordinary Thing and Living Like Flowers.

Dang Ngoc Tung, representative of a social fund named after Viet Nam People's Armed Forces hero Phan Trong Binh, said he believed the concert would spread deep love and gratitude of the community for the frontline forces who are working tirelessly, regardless of difficulties, to fight the pandemic.

A partner of the event, chairman of the LeBors Media Le Quoc Vinh, said that the concert would be organised while the country had thousands of new COVID-19 cases every day.

“Together, we will send our most sincere thanks to all those quiet soldiers. We hope our love will enhance their belief and strength in this fight,” he said.

The concert will be livestreamed on the Facebook pages of VTV3, VOV, Dan Tri and Đẹp magazine.
