CEO of WebTVAsia Fred Chong said this is one of the biggest initiatives from the Asian entertainment community to show our support for UNICEF through a one cohesive message of Love and Unity.  We cannot thank all the participants enough for contributing to this special concert.

Gautam Anand, Managing Director, YouTube APAC said: “We’re excited to be supporting WebTVAsia and UNICEF to bring this very special concert to YouTube audiences across APAC and globally. ONE LOVE ASIA encapsulates our commitment to championing talent and giving them a platform to share their creativity and make a positive impact in the world.”

UNICEF’s Regional Director for East Asia and Pacific, Karin Hulshof said, “UNICEF is thrilled to be part of the “ONE LOVE ASIA” concert! Together we will create greater awareness of UNICEF’s work for children and families so they will be able to recover, rebound and reimagine a stronger future.”

With many countries slowly opening up, “ONE LOVE ASIA” hopes to spread positivity in countries on the path to recovery, while igniting a sense of unity and love across Asia.

WebTVAsia CEO Fred Chong said Asian countries and its people have been severely impacted by the pandemic, so the overwhelming response from the artistes and YouTube to support this UNICEF Asia donation drive makes this project truly special.

The “ONE LOVE ASIA” concert is part of UNICEF’s #Reimagine global campaign to task the global community to #Reimagine a better world for children post COVID-19.
