'Love Song to the Earth' - Sean Paul, Natasha Bedingfield, Paul McCartney and others
“I’m glad to be a part of ‘Love Song to the Earth,’ aiming to inspire people across the world to urge their leaders to act on climate change,” McCartney said in a statement prior to the Paris climate talks. “We need to be fast and efficient, switching to renewable energy and eating less meat, for example. Big decisions will be made in Paris, so I am doing everything I can to make sure governments sign up to an agreement, which can protect our planet. Now is the time to act. So please spread the words and help keep our planet safe!”
“Love Song to the Earth,” which is available for purchase, was penned by Toby Gad, John Shanks, Bedingfield and Paul and also features Jon Bon Jovi, Sheryl Crow, Fergie Leona Lewis, Goo Goo Dolls’ Johnny Rzeznik, Angelique Kidjo, Nicole Scherzinger, Kelsea Ballerini, Krewella and Victoria Justice. Proceeds from the sale of the video benefit Friends of the Earth and the UN Foundation.
“We wanted to create a song to unify voices in a positive uplifting chorus to support the world’s leaders as they gathered in Paris this December,” Jerry Cope, the song’s executive director and co-director/producer of the video, told Rolling Stone in September. “We wanted to finally forge a binding ambitious global climate treaty to address carbon emissions and anthropogenic effects that is resulting from human behavior climate change.”
