Who knows, maybe this song will be the next “We Are the World.” An all-star line-up of performers have joined forces to record a song about climate change, including Paul McCartney, Jon Bon Jovi, Sheryl Crow, Fergie, Sean Paul, Leona Lewis and Colbie Caillat. The song, “Love Song to the Earth,” was released on Sept. 11.
The song was created ahead of the UN climate talks in Paris this December to help spur world nations to reach an agreement to keep global warming below disastrous levels. Proceeds will go to the UN and Friends of the Earth. Nicole Scherzinger, Natasha Bedingfield, Angelique Kidjo, Kelsea Ballerini, Victoria Justice and many more artists also added their voices to the track. Their message is simple: “Keep the Earth safe.”
Every time the song is purchased, streamed, or shared, the royalties go directly towards the efforts of Friends of the Earth to keep fossil fuels in the ground and lower carbon emissions, and to the work of the U.N. Foundation to inspire international action on climate change.
Why not lend your voice to the Earth and help catapult the Love Song into a global hit. Because it’s our world.
