Harriet Chung Makes A Heartfelt Request: Hold Me Tight

The singer's latest single speaks to the universal longing for love and reassurance.

Harriet Chung seeks the comfort of a loving embrace in her new single and lyric video Hold Me Tight — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Crafted by the skilled songwriter George Chiang and brought to life through Chung’s soul-stirring vocals, Hold Me Tight is a journey through the intricacies of human emotion, wrapped in the soothing embrace of harmonious melodies and heartfelt lyrics. At its core, the song speaks to the universal longing for love and reassurance in the face of life’s uncertainties. Set against a backdrop of tender guitar and sweeping piano, the song opens with a sense of vulnerability and apprehension, as the protagonist grapples with feelings of fear and insecurity. Yet, amidst the chaos of life’s relentless pace, there is solace to be found in the comforting presence of a loved one.

As the chorus unfolds, Chung’s vocals soar with emotion, mirroring the protagonist’s sense of relief and empowerment when enveloped in their partner’s embrace. With each repetition of the refrain, listeners are drawn deeper into the warmth and security of love’s embrace, reminded of its transformative power to conquer even the darkest of fears:

“When you hold me tight
Everything’s all right
You’re my shining star
My beacon in the night
When you hold me tight
I can face anything
You’re my rock
My safe haven
My everything.”’

Throughout the song, Chung’s vocals exude sincerity and warmth, inviting listeners to empathize with the raw emotions laid bare in each verse. From the tender vulnerability of the opening lines to the resounding declaration of devotion in the final chorus, the single is a testament to the enduring strength of love to light the way through life’s trials and tribulations. Accompanied by Warren Robert (arrangement and instruments) and Rique Franks (backup vocals), Chung’s performance is elevated to new heights, each instrument adding its own layer of depth and richness to the composition.

In addition to her music career, Harriet and Chiang will be featured performers at the prestigious Stratford Festival for the world premiere of Salesman In China. Previews begin Aug. 3, with the grand opening slated for Aug. 23.
