'One World One Song'
is the first ‘We Sing, You Sing’ anthem for the sustainable ending of hunger! It is also the first song to be released backed by a cross-curricular schools project.'One World One Song'
was composed to encourage emotional engagement with the issues of ending hunger and to inspire many more people to take action (much as Band Aid's 'Feed The World' and USA For Africa’s 'We Are The World' have done in the past) but it isn’t a song released in response to a specific 'emergency' event like a famine, earthquake or flood.
Written in a unique partnership by legendary songwriter Tony Hatch
, Tim Holder
- Country Director of The Hunger Project UK
and charity Patron Rod Natkie
l, the message of the song calls for the sustainable end to hunger and poverty.
2 million children still die every year. 90% of these deaths are not because of Earthquake, Famine or Flood, but quite simply because over 870 million people currently wake up every morning and go to bed every night, having not received the bare minimum nourishment required to make their lives healthy, productive, dignified or sustainable.
All proceeds from this project will go to The Hunger Project’s
work to empower communities to create sustainable futures. This song is not about us trying to feed people, it is about people coming together as 'One World'.. SINGING …'One Song' to create the opportunities and deliver the skills that will enable mothers and fathers to feed their own children. This song is about ending hunger - permanently.
