Dami Im joins the international collaboration for Korean unification prayer song

Australian powerhouse voice and Eurovision representative, Dami Im,  has joined a group of celebrated Korean and international musicians to release a project song praying for the reunification of the Korean Peninsula.

The song titled "Korean Dream" to be released on Liberation Day - Aug. 15 - involves Korea's Jung Dong-ha and Voisper, Korean-Australian singer Dami Im, American singers Peabo Bryson and Lauren Evans, and the Philippines' Sabrina and Zendee Rose Tenerefe, One K Media said.

Bryson is well known in South Korea for his work on the soundtracks for several Disney animated features, including "Aladdin" and "Beauty and the Beast." Sabrina is a popular singer in the Philippines, while Tenerefe rose to prominence through her cover songs uploaded on YouTube.

The lyrics, written by Grammy Award-winning songwriting duo Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, evoke a different vision for the Korean peninsula, a place where the people of the land walk "hand in hand," "without fear, spreading love."

One K Media released a similar project song in 2015, titled "One Dream, One Korea" recorded by Korean singers Yangpa and Na Yoon-kwon.

The song has yet to be performed in the United States, but on Monday a coalition of K-pop artists and a Korea-born Australian singer took to a Seoul stage to sing of "strength in unity" at a time of deeply divisive rhetoric from Pyongyang.
