Together With You, a bilingual song in Chinese and English, was composed and recorded by New Zealand's Auckland Girls' Choir to deliver messages of love and support to epidemic-stricken China.

Leonie Lawson, aged 89, is the founder of the choir and wrote the English lyrics of the song. "There was a strong feeling amongst the girls, they want to help Wuhan. I know the Chinese people will have a very good fighting spirit when they face something difficult. So I use that aspect in writing and made a lively tune that had power behind it", Lawson said in an interview.

From the genesis of the idea to final recording, it took four days for the Auckland Girls' Choir to complete the heartwarming song, finishing on Feb 14 — Valentine’s Day.
