Lockdown song raises funds for charity

Luna Paige says the song Reach the Sky is dedicated to all South Africans.

Fourteen musicians collaborated on the recording and release of Luna Paige’s song and YouTube video Reach the Sky.

The song, which is written in four languages, aims to inspire South Africans during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Lyrical contributions were by Luna Paige, Frazer Barry (Afrikaans), Lumanyano “Unity” Mzi (Xhosa) and Sima Mashazi (Zulu).

Due to lockdown restrictions, all recordings and video footage were shot individually.
