Neal Fox's Poignant, Timely Single, "A Message From Shanghai," Now Available on Digital Platforms
The Chinese people are teaching us an important lesson about freedom: They have none. But they never stop fighting for it.
China has long been known for its oppressive government. In fact, May 28, was the 33rd anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre, where student-led demonstrations, calling for democracy and free speech, ended in tragic loss of life and imprisonment of thousands. Today, a strict zero COVID policy, seemingly endless lockdowns (affecting 26 million people in Shanghai alone) and the resultant incidents of starvation, prove that nothing there has changed.
Observing the current scene around the world, and in his own country, songwriter Neal Fox says, "The people of China have endured so much, yet they are brave and courageous. Many Americans accept socialism as a good way of life. Communism is next. Maybe they should ask the Chinese people what they think. Before it's too late."
Watch the lyric video of "A Message From Shanghai"
No more — this is where it ends
No more hiding in the corner
Praying for a license to survive
Life means more than being just alive
And from this day we all are free
Raise the banner high for all to see
We will not bend, we won't comply
We heard the Message From Shanghai
