Greek-American actress, producer and performer Rita Wilson and Greece-born popular singer Christos Mastoras joined forces for the second time in the brand new duet "Oli Mazi" (We Are All Together), written primarily for the soundtrack of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3."

It is a creation of Rita Wilson and Oscar winner and 12 Grammy Award winner Diane Warren, who has also written songs for many major artists including Celine Dion, Cher, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé and more.
The song, which will soon have a video clip starring Wilson and Mastoras, was explicitly written for the film's soundtrack to address issues related to Nia Vardalos' beloved family.
Rita Wilson explains: "Greek people are known for their love of family. OLI MAZI means “all together.” The song is about bringing people together whether it’s your birth family or chosen family, being there for each other and celebrating that love and connection. No man is a (Greek) island. (Thank you, John Donne.) We need each other. I’m excited about collaborating again with Greek artist Christos Mastoras, and to have co-written ‘OLI MAZI (We Are All Together)’ with my dear friend, the great Diane Warren."
Diane Warren adds, “At a time when we seem so far apart, I hope ‘OLI MAZI’ which means all together, can maybe bring us a little closer.”
Christos says, "After our first collaboration on 'Let Me Be' it’s such a great pleasure to work with Rita Wilson again on this new song for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3, a movie that I’m a huge fan of. 'OLI MAZI (We Are All Together)' is a song that I loved from the moment Rita shared it with me. I hope people love it as much as we do."
Written and directed by Nia Vardalos, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 stars Vardalos, John Corbett, Louis Mandylor, Elena Kampouris, Gia Carides, Joey Fatone with Lainie Kazan and Andrea Martin.
The worldwide phenomenon returns with this brand-new adventure as the Portokalos family travels to a family reunion in Greece for a heartwarming and hilarious trip full of love, twists and turns.
