Working on a damn project, Mtv Arabia in the background, don’t know what made me lift my head up and look, I saw different people from around the world writing their names, noticed Will.i.am’s voice, but I certainly didn’t see THAT coming! CHECK THE VIDEO AT 2.15. I mean check all of it but most importantly 2.15 lol.
keef balla?? 😀 Anyway, This song is called “In My Name” by Will.i.am featuring Angelique Kidjo. It calls upon global leaders to end poverty. Apparently this thing had to do with a meeting for the United Nations some time late last year to renew their commitment to achieving the eight Millennium goals by 2015, as they’re tackling a host of global issues: end global poverty, achieve a global partnership for development, achieve universal education, promote gender equality, reduce child mortality, improve maternal health, ensure environmental sustainability, and combat HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases. Will.i.am rallied up a host of celeb friends to participate including Fergie, Scarlett Johansson, Wyclef Jean, Kristen Davis, John Legend, Annie Lennox, Mischa Barton ANDDDD QUEEN RANIA AL ABDULLAH.
Don’t think any of these problems will be gone any time soon, and not exactly sure what the song will contribute to this thing either, but if it gets celebrities to participate in helping end such problems then I think it’s a pretty nice idea. 🙂
