The vigil event saw hundreds of people showing their support for the family and friends of those on board the plane.
Hundreds of well-wishers turned up at The Curve in Petaling Jaya, Selangor yesterday to be a part of the #UniteforMH370 vigil event.
The event, organised by singer Reshmonu, CEO of Global Peace foundation Dr Teh Su Thye and Datuk Latt Shariman Abdullah, was meant to show support for the families and loved ones of those on board flight MH370.
Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was declared missing on March 8, 2014 with 239 people on board. As of today, the plan has yet to be found.
Speaking at the event, Reshmonu hopes the public will stop making all kinds of speculation and instead, show their concern for those affected. “I’ve instilled a ‘no clapping, no cheering policy’ for this event to let the family members and loved ones know that they are not alone,” said Reshmonu.
He added: “We want the world to know that through this event, Malaysians are united with family members and loved ones of flight MH370.”
The #UniteforMH370 event saw vigil prayer sessions led by leaders of different faiths. The event also included performances by Jaclyn Victor, Atilia, Elvira Arul and Russell Curtis Project, who wrote a special song for the event called Bring Them Home.
“The reason that we’re all here is because we want them to come home,” said Elvira who sang Kau Ilhamku with Victor and Atilia. The singers, as well as other celebrities, also did a heartfelt performance of Michael Jackson’s You Are Not Alone.
