Environmental organization Friends of the Earth US is part of a project that involves several institutions, among them the UN Foundation, and is presenting the “Love Song to the Earth”, recorded by international renowned artists to support the leadership on climate change of the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon.
The project also supports the United Nations’ call for a meaningful, universal, global climate change agreement to be signed by governments in December at the 21 Conference of the Parties on Climate Change to be held in Paris, France.
“Friends of the Earth is excited to be collaborating with Jerry Cope, Toby Gad, the UN Foundation and all the artists to make ‘Love Song to the Earth’ a reality,” stated Erich Pica, president of Friends of the Earth U.S. “The climate crisis is near a global tipping point, we hope everyone who hears this anthem takes action to encourage our political leaders to keep our planet safe, by keeping fossil fuels in the ground and moving toward 100 percent renewable energy. The time for leadership and action is now; if our political leaders cannot or will not lead, then a people’s movement must”, adds Pica in a press release sent out on September 4th.
Love Song to the Earth features performances by Paul McCartney, Jon Bon Jovi, Sheryl Crow, Fergie, Colbie Caillat, Natasha Bedingfield, Leona Lewis, Sean Paul, Johnny Rzeznik, Krewella, Angelique Kidjo (a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador), Kelsea Ballerini, Nicole Scherzinger, Christina Grimmie, Victoria Justice and Q’Orianka Kilcher.
Written by Toby Gad, Natasha Bedingfield, John Shanks and Sean Paul, and produced by Toby Gad and John Shanks, the song will be available worldwide September 4, exclusively on iTunes and Apple Music via Connect. The artists, producers and directors of the Love Song project - as well as Apple - are donating their respective proceeds to Friends of the Earth U.S. and the United Nations Foundation.
The artists are asking their fans to “Share the Love Song” and “Take Climate Action Now” by signing a petition that will be delivered to world’s leaders at the beginning of the climate conference in Paris.
