Musicians sing for African children

Korean musicians have teamed up to release a charity song to help African children.
Jazz duo Winter Play with singers Kang San-eh, Lee Hyun-woo and Lee Juck, have recorded a song called “One By One.” The single was released on March 19 online.

“One By One” is the theme song of the “1.25 Miracle Market” campaign to help children living on $1.25 a day in Malawi.

Lee Ju-han of Winter Play composed the song and Lee Hyun-woo wrote the lyrics. Lee Ju-han hopes that it will draw more attention to the humanitarian issue from the public like Michael Jackson and Lionel Richies’s “We Are the World.”

The proceeds from the song will be donated to the international charity organization.
