Metro Vocal Group Pays Inspiring Tribute To Wong Ka Kui, Beyond

Three months after releasing their highly successful version of Joey Yung's "My Pride" on YouTube.com, Metro Vocal Group has now decided to tackle one of the greatest songs ever to come out of Hong Kong, "Under a Vast Sky" by arguably the best rock band Hong Kong has ever produced, Beyond. The video is set to release on June 30th, as this is the anniversary of the tragic death of lead singer and songwriter, Wong Ka Kui. According to musical director Sean Oliver, they wanted to pay tribute to the musical visionary whose songs were a strong part of Metro's inspiration to begin performing in Cantonese.

The accompanying music video is a somber reflection of the genuine depth and sadness of the Wong Ka Kui story. The video begins with a quote from the great musician, "Music is the international language. If there is music, the world will never end." These words encapsulate the life and mission of Wong Ka Kui until his untimely death, which Metro have tried to capture in their version of his song and accompanying video.

In their last release, "My Pride", Metro thrilled audiences by singing a mixture of English and Cantonese. For their rendition of "Under a Vast Sky", they not only had to cope with the challenge of performing the entire song in Cantonese, but also with expressing the deep emotions and tragic events that surround the song. Tenor Kevin Thornton says, "It's difficult to express our emotions but we can think of no other way to better honor Wong Ka Kui and Beyond." Eric Monson, who arranged the song says, "Everyone in Hong Kong knows this song. We are honored to sing it."
