NANJING, Feb. 21 (Xinhua) -- A total of 50 musicians from 19 countries performed a song to support China's fight against the novel coronavirus.

The song, "Together," was performed by musicians from Cuba, the United States and other countries, who hoped to extend love, care and support in the form of music to Chinese people who are combating the virus.

The performers included Sugar Blue, an American blues harmonica player, and Vocal Sampling, a cappella music group from Cuba.

"We sent the sheet music and accompaniment to these musicians, inviting them to sing the song in their own languages and styles," said Lu Zhongqiang, the composer of the song. The audience can hear various languages such as Chinese, English, Spanish, Japanese in this song.

Under the joint efforts of every musician, the song was completed in two weeks. "I really appreciate their merits because all of them performed without pay," said Lu.

The song was released on various online platforms Thursday.
