Not only Catholics but worshippers of other confessions participated in the recording. “An invitation for everybody willing to participate was placed on VKontakte and people of different talents took part in the project. The soloists are the stars of Belarusian Christian music: Patrytsiya Kurhanova, the participant of Russian show “Golos”, the vocalist of Belarusian academical music theater Dzmitry Matsiyeuski and a famous musician Aliaksandr Patlis”, – Alena Kot told.

“Anthem is an anthem but we wanted to added national colour to it. That is why we added Belarusian folk instrument: a girl from the band “Stary Olsa” plays sapilka. In general, we wanted to add someting of ourselves to the song. Where we succeeded or not is up to you to decide”, – she mentioned.
