Public health issues recognize no boundaries. As the COVID-19 pandemic wreaks havoc around the globe, solidarity and courage is more needed than ever for human beings to fight the virus.

During this particular time, more than 100 fans of Michael Jackson, most from China, sing "Heal the world", in the hopes of giving some strength and solace to those in need.

"There are so many things in the world today that are tragic and unexplainable. The most current is coronavirus that has taken many lives...But this is just not a problem for China. This is a problem for the entire world. This is why we all need to come together as onebecause every life that's lost is a loved one no matter where they fall in the world. But if we come together as one, we can fight this horrible virus and harness it and stop it from spreading," says singer Jermaine Jackson, brother of the late pop idol Michael Jackson, at the beginning of a new music video for "Heal the World."

The music video released Friday, dedicated to people everywhere who are fighting against the COVID-19 outbreak, was a collective effort by Michael Jackson fans around the globe. Launched by the Michael Jackson Chinese Fanclub, more than 100 fans, including a score of fans from countries like the US, Spain, Brazil, Russia and India sang in the video.

US director and choreographer Vincent Paterson, who has collaborated with Jackson and Madonna on various projects, shared a poster for the video on Facebook. 

"Rene Lamontagne [Paterson's husband] and I were truly moved by the spirit of love...not about singing great, but about love," he wrote.
