Scottish singer and harp-player Katie Targett Adams, who lives in Beijing and performs in Chinese and English, has released a song commemorating last year’s earthquake in Sichuan which she will promote to raise funds for the survivors.

Day by Day was released on April 12 in both Chinese and English. Translation of the Chinese version -- Xin de Wei Lai – was completed by Yan Wenqing and Wang Songyuan.

Katie’s song tells the story of a small boy who nurtures a flower from the earthquake's debris. As he helps the flower to flourish he discovers he has, in the process, begun his own bright new future. Years later when grown up he owns his own fruit orchards and spreads work to many families providing them with nourishment and happiness. The message is one of regeneration, of fighting for a meaningful life even in times of extreme hardship, and as a result, with work, come success and happiness.

"I wanted to involve the Chinese community in making the song so that this project could really represent different cultures coming together to raise awareness about the Earthquake one year on," she says.

"Children sing on the track and Chinese University students were involved in making the music video. Music is the only way I can personally aim to make a difference. By uniting our cultures we will hopefully raise a lot of money for the people of Sichuan."
