A touching homage to the miraculous events of July, 2018
By Tom McLean
Taking place at the Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit on the 15th of October 2020, the single and music video launch of “Where the Eagles Fly” was a touching tribute to the heroic efforts of Vern Unsworth and the other cave explorers who assisted in the rescue of the Wild Boar football team from the flooded Tham Luang Nang Non cave in July 2018.
Created in collaboration between the Tourism Authority of Thailand and The Isan Project music initiative, an illustrious panel of guest speakers were present at the event, including Tanes Petsuwan, Deputy Governor for Marketing Communications at the Tourism Authority of Thailand; Will Robinson, owner and executive producer of The Isan Project; Senator Weerasak Kowsurat, former Minister of Tourism & Sports; and Vern Unsworth, mastermind behind the Tham Luang rescue mission.
The song and music video made for an emotive homage to the miraculous rescue, while guest speakers recounted the events and how they were affected. The song is now available on digital music platforms including Spotify, iTunes, and Apple Music.
