Power company workers in tune with spirit of solidarity over

 "Chinese, German stand united, there is no way to get divided. Help each other through the night ..." 
 
so goes the song in a video performed by Sebastian Schmidt, who said he hoped to show support to the 
 
Chinese people in the fight against COVID-19.
 
Schmidt, chief finance officer of WindMW GmbH-a German offshore wind farm operator acquired by China 
 
Three Gorges Co-wrote the song titled We Will Win in February after he heard about the severe 
 
situation in China due to the novel coronavirus outbreak.
 
"Art is a bridge builder and brings people closer together, especially in a situation of social 
 
distancing," Schmidt said.
 
Keen on music, Schmidt is adept at playing musical instruments including the guitar, piano and 
 
accordion, and tried to compose and write songs since an early age.
 
However, it had been seven years since he wrote his last song and Schmidt said he was worried about 
 
writing again.
 
"But when I thought about the kind of support that is needed, I thought music as an international 
 
language is a way we can come through this hard time together," he said.
 
Thanks to a good grounding in music, the business executive found creating the song went better than he 
 
expected.
 
"I wrote the text for the song in one hour and the music was composed in about 90 minutes," Schmidt 
 
said.
 
But it took more time to arrange the song in a studio due to the need to organize every line and bring 
 
the music to the computer and mix it, he added.
 
Schmidt spent about three weeks completing the work with the support of his family and colleagues.
 
"My cousin, who lives 200 kilometers away, was a great help," he said. He added that his mother helped 
 
him to record on a smartphone.
 
His German colleagues gave him time to record the final version on a working day and Chinese colleagues 
 
mixed the video and added the subtitles, he said, in which "they gave me good feedback."
 
"During the process of creating the song, I identified myself with it more and more, so the version you 
 
see really comes from the heart," he said.
 
In 2016, CTG, the world's biggest hydropower builder, inked a deal with the United States-based 
 
investment firm Blackstone Group LP to buy its majority stake in WindMW. It was part of an effort to 
 
expand CTG's business into the offshore wind market.
 
CTG is a family, Schmidt said. "Our partnership does not end on the work level."
 
"It was very inspiring and gave me strength," Li Keyu, an employee of CTG, said after listening to the 
 
song by Schmidt.
 
Li was assigned to work in the German company this year but was blocked due to the COVID-19 outbreak, 
 
according to CTG.
 
Encouraged by her German colleague's work, Li created her first English song named I'll Be There in 
 
March.
 
"During that period, lyrics and melody kept coming to my mind as I imagined the European battle against 
 
the pandemic," Li said.
 
The process between employees of creating songs about the fight against the pandemic to show support 
 
and encourage each other demonstrates CTG's philosophy of promoting cross-cultural communication, said 
 
Wang Yu, chairman of CTG International.
 
CTG has been dedicated to promoting exchanges and integration of different cultures in its long-term 
 
overseas business management over the past few years, Wang said.
 
Since the outbreak of the pandemic, CTG said it has helped to mobilize resources and send medical 
 
materials to countries including Germany, Portugal, Peru, Pakistan and Brazil.
 
Established in 1993, CTG is a State-owned company with roots in hydroelectric power.
 
So far, CTG's contracting business overseas has spanned over 40 countries and regions in Asia, Africa 
 
and the Americas.
