Malaysia Artistes For UNITY..

UNITY!! overused or overrated? Nahhh.. Listen to the song playing on my background.. Its by Pete Teo. Song entitled Here In My Home!!

pete was juggling tomatoes.

bored. so he telephoned a few friends
instead. “how about getting together to make an anti-racism song and
music video?” all said yes without hesitation. not because pete
threatened them with a rusty knife. only because they love malaysia.

the contingent swelled to 52 people a
few days later. it included filmmakers, dancers, singers, producers,
musicians, actors, entrepreneurs, designers, footballers, activists,
celebrities, students and a florist. nobody would be paid. yet they
were enthused. not because they were high on speed. only because they
love Malaysia.

they gathered to record the song. it had
a catchy chorus and was able to induce a mass sing-along. everyone was
happy when it was done. they named it ‘here in my home’. then more
people joined. the party now included more than 120 people. but the
budget remained exactly zero. it seems even the spreadsheet loves

everyone turned up for the video shoot.
much fun was had and friendships made. video editors went to work after
the shoot was done. both the recording and the video would be given
away for free. a gift to the nation. from those who love malaysia to
those who feel the same.

did you ask what this is all about?
