At the same time, the song encourages the disabled to create a better life with optimism and an enterprising spirit, and walk hand in hand with other people to share the sunshine of love.
Guo said that the song was recorded at an unprecedented scale, bringing together 111 stars in China. It was recorded in Beijing, Hong Kong and other places from Mar 19, taking one and a half months. Beginning on May 8, the song will be put on major music websites and music TV programs, and national singing activities will be launched across China.
Guo Liqun, director of the Department of Publication and Culture of the China Disabled Persons’ Federation, said that Sunshine of Love has a beautiful and exciting melody that has produced a wide range of social influences. It is believed that the release of the song will further enhance public understanding of the cause of the disabled, and play a positive role in helping people with disabilities fight poverty and build a well-off society.
Zhang Yanhua, secretary-general of the China Foundation for Disabled Persons (CFDP), said that the Sunshine of Love national sing-along event was intended to show the extraordinary achievements of people with disabilities in China, and call on the whole society to help them to share the fruits of social civilization.
The Sunshine of Love singing activities will be widely carried out at campuses, factories, hospitals, and communities. The CFPD and the China Post Group Beijing Branch published charity stamps featuring Sunshine of Love, a chance for the public to donate to support the development of cultural activities for people with disabilities.
