We Endure – an amazing Swedish music project

“Vi håller ut” (We endure) is one of the strongest messages of 2020

Translated from Youtube by Karina Brandt

“Vi håller ut” (We endure) is one of the strongest messages of 2020

To give back to those who fight the hardest, and to boost everyone who needs it, this song and music video, “Vi håller ut” was created.

Around 50 Swedish artists and musicians recorded the song which is dedicated to Swedes’ fight against Covid-19.

First, the song was released in a number of groups, fora, and newsletters dedicated to the health workers and all the community-bearing professions. But “We Endure” is not only a song for a specific profession. It is a song for all of those who are fighting with the side effects of the corona crisis, old as well as young. In our entire country is sorrow, hardships, and challenges we have never met before. We make sacrifices and show consideration to protect ourselves and first of all, one another.

As a profession – artists/musicians/self-employed – we fight economically for survival. Exactly like so many others just now. Some fight for their physical survival, many have already lost that battle. We do this together and the song, “Vi håller ut” (we endure) belongs to all of us.
