A song entitled "Let's Go" is to promote the G20 Summit in Seoul next month, Asia Bridge Content productions announced Wednesday.
Twenty singers took part in the project to suggest the representation of 20 countries. They include Son Dam-bi, IU and members from groups such as Girls' Generation, SHINee, 2AM, 2PM, Kara, BEAST, After School and Super Junior.
The musicians said their motivation was to bring the people of Korea together for the successful hosting of the G20 Summit event, whose motto is "Shared Growth Beyond Crisis," according to a press release. It quotes Seo-hyun from Girls' Generation as saying, "I feel honored to be part of this meaningful project. I hope 'Let's Go' can help bolster people's interest and cooperation" in the summit.
