There’s probably not a single Malaysian adult who can’t at least belt out the chorus of rock star Ella’s 1998 hit “Standing In The Eyes of the World”.
Now there’s a new version that fans can sing their heart out to, as the Malaysian rock queen has recently dropped a 2020 remix of the beloved hit.
This time the song doesn’t feature only Ella’s vocals but also the voices and talents of other artistes from both Malaysia and the US.
That’s because this new remix is a special project by the Embassy of the United States in Malaysia, made to commemorate the US Independence Day that’s celebrated annually on 4 July.
Ella shared the song’s music video on her social media, stating that it features not only herself but also the ukulele-playing Zee Avi and a few alumni of American Music Abroad, an international exchange programme that sends the country’s artistes abroad every year in order to foster cross-cultural communications between American artists and global audiences.
Hit play on the video below and enjoy the 2020 version of Ella’s “Standing In The Eyes of the World”!
