Join Us and Sing Tomorrow Will Be Better with Children from around the World

The COVID-19 has been attacking our cherished world for months. This pandemic is a crisis of the mankind that requires global efforts. At this moment, we call for the world to be united regardless of skin color, race, and national borders, because humanity is a community with a shared future and for centuries human beings join hands in coordination and cooperation to overcome crises and challenges.


To this end, the China Development Research Foundation (CDRF), the China National Children’s Center and Save the Children have launched a joint initiative of online choir, “Voice of Children – Children from around the World Singing Tomorrow Will Be Better”, where children from rural and urban areas of China and the rest of the world sing together the song ‘Tomorrow Will Be Better’ in Chinese and English. With this, we pray for an end to the current pandemic and a better future for the world we live in.


On 2nd April, the CDRF and the partners released the official music video. The hashtag has so far been read over nine million times and commented over 8195 times.


Today, the CDRF will start #TomorrowWillBeBetter# Global Relay of Children’s Voice on Facebook. We are now inviting children from all over the world to join us and sing Tomorrow Will Be Better.


The second edition of the music video is scheduled to be released later this April. We are now inviting more children including yours to be part of this video. Ways of participation and requirements are as follows:


1. Children under 14 from all over the world are welcomed to participate.

Tomorrow will be better 
《明天会更好》英文版 
When you wake up in the morning 轻轻敲醒沉睡的心灵 
When you haven't started to think 慢慢张开你的眼睛 
There is a whole brand new day 看看忙碌的世界 
Open wide and waiting for you 是否依然孤独的转个不停
I know in life's sorrow 春风不解风情 
you're on the verge of drowning 吹动少年的心
May your tears flee with yesterday 让昨日脸上的泪痕 
blow away with the wind 随记忆风干了


When you wake up in the morning 抬头寻找天空的翅膀 
When you haven't started to think 候鸟出现它的影迹
The world is out there calling 带来远处的饥荒 
open eyes to new beginning 无情的战火依然存在的消息 
A newborn sun is shinning 玉山白雪飘零 
Chasing shadows from your mind 燃烧少年的心
Everything will be alive, 使真情溶化成音符 
under the sunshine's smile 倾诉遥远的祝福


Come out from your corner 唱出你的热情
No doubt in join us 伸出你双手
You can decide the future 让我拥抱着你的梦 
Devote your youthful power to this world 
让我拥有你真心的面孔


Come together, hand in hand together 让我们的笑容 
I know you'll do 充满着青春的骄傲 
We pray and believe that 为明天献出
tomorrow will be better. 虔诚的祈祷


No, I don't know what your name is 
谁能不顾自己的家园 
But you're so familiar to me 抛开记忆中的童年
Cause we belong to one family 谁能忍心看他昨日的忧愁 
You can hear my heart calling 带走我们的笑容


Life can be music, 青春不解红尘
rainbows can be reached 胭脂沾染了灰 
If you face yourself truly让久违不见的泪水 
keep striving for your dream 滋润了你的面容


Come out from your corner 唱出你的热情

No doubt in join us 伸出你双手

You can decide the future 让我拥抱着你的梦

Devote your youthful power to this world

让我拥有你真心的面孔

 

Come together, hand in hand together 让我们的笑容

I know you'll do 充满着青春的骄傲

We pray and believe that 为明天献出

tomorrow will be better. 虔诚的祈祷


When you wake up in the morning 轻轻敲醒沉睡的心灵 
When you haven't started to think 慢慢张开你的眼睛 
There is a whole brand new day 看那忙碌的世界 
Open wide and waiting for you 是否依然孤独的转个不停 
I know in life's sorrow 日出唤醒清晨
you're on the verge of drowning 大地光彩重生 
May your tears flee with yesterday 让和风拂出的音响 
Blow away with the wind 谱成生命的乐章


Come out from your corner 唱出你的热情

No doubt in join us 伸出你双手

You can decide the future 让我拥抱着你的梦

Devote your youthful power to this world

让我拥有你真心的面孔

 

Come together, hand in hand together 让我们的笑容

轻轻敲醒沉睡的心灵

慢慢张开你的眼睛

看看忙碌的世界

是否依然孤独的转个不停

春风不解风情

吹动少年的心

让昨日脸上的泪痕

随记忆风干了

 

抬头寻找天空的翅膀

候鸟出现它的影迹

带来远处的饥荒

无情的战火依然存在的消息

玉山白雪飘零

燃烧少年的心

使真情溶化成音符

倾诉遥远的祝福

 

唱出你的热情

伸出你双手

让我拥抱着你的梦

让我拥有你真心的面孔

谁能忍心看他昨日的忧愁

带走我们的笑容
