“Ben&Ben joins 15 Sony Music artists from across Asia, in a collaborative remake of Eric Chou’s “Forever Beautiful.”
Ben&Ben represented the Philippines in Sony Music Asia’s group of artists to make a collaborative cover of “Forever Beautiful: All for One Version,” originally sung and composed by Eric Chou, who was included in the collab himself. The purpose of the movement was to express support for those affected by the iCOVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak.
Brought together by their love and passion for music, this collection of artists, singing in English and Chinese language, came together to share one important message to the world: that despite language barriers and ethnic and cultural differences, we can still be united by love and compassion.
They are not alone
“In this time of fear and uncertainty, it is important to remind people that they are not alone and that even the most dreadful things give way to new beginnings,” shared Ben&Ben vocalist and guitarist Paolo Benjamin. “It was cool to do this project with some of the most talented and generous artists across Asia.”

Also taking part in the stunning rendition are Kelly Cheng from Taiwan, Wafa, a member from Bahiyya Haneesa (an acapella group from Malaysia), R&B-pop singer NYK, Singaporean artists Benjamin Kheng, Narelle and Sezairi, HÀ LÊ, a vocalist from Vietnam, popular indie-folk-pop band Ben&Ben from the Philippines, singer-songwriter and producer E.viewz from South Korea, singer Fatin from Indonesia, singer-songwriter Jocelyn C from Beijing, and Hong Kong artists Phil Lam, Jason Chan, and Cath Wong.
