UNICEF's musical event: The #IMAGINE Project #EveryChildCounts

Post  Dinahkin on Fri 21 Nov 2014, 1:12 pm



"Streamed live on 20 Nov 2014
20 November 2014 marks an important date on the global calendar: the 25th Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child – the most widely ratified legal agreement to protect child rights. To mark this day and generate much needed awareness and funds, UNICEF is embarking on The #IMAGINE Project – one of the world’s largest-ever combined music recordings, to one of the world’s most loved songs, John Lennon’s Imagine.

Through a new App, music artists, celebrity influencers including athletes and actors, and people around the world will be able to record their contribution (vocals and video) which will be mixed together to create a million voices ‘world’ version of the song Imagine, produced by David Guetta for UNICEF, in support of children around the world.

2014 also marks two other UNICEF anniversaries: the 60th Anniversary of UNICEF’s Goodwill Ambassadors (GWAs) Programme (past and present GWAs include Danny Kay, Audrey Hepburn, David Beckham, Katy Perry, amongst others) and the 35th Anniversary of the Music for UNICEF Concert – a huge gathering of music stars such as ABBA, Bee Gees, Olivia Newton-John and Rod Stewart, in 1979 to help raise awareness and funds for UNICEF.

Programme includes: 

• Performances by UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors and influential singers representing regions from around the world: Angelique Kidjo; Daniela Mercury; Sonu Nigam; Laleh, performing ABBA’s ‘Chiquitita’ live, with Bjorn of ABBA joining onstage at the end; Kristian Kostov.

• Projected video performances by UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors and influential singers representing regions from around the world, including Katy Perry, Nancy Ajram, Priyanka Chopra, Yuna Kim and others. [including Bill Kaulitz from Tokio Hotel]

• Projected video segments from the 1979 Music for UNICEF Concert to acknowledge the 35th Anniversary of that historic concert.

• Grand finale of a performance of ‘Imagine’, led by the 15 year old Russian singer, Kristian Kostov, who is then joined by all artists on the main stage of the Hall where Yoko Ono sits at a white piano; all are accompanied by a 65 person children’s choir coming down the aisles from the back of the Hall to the stage"

The Project has gained international media attention, with pieces in the Daily Mail and Telegraph in the UK, and tweets from the various Unicef

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/celebritynews/11243506/A-listers-assemble-for-largest-charity-singalong-of-John-Lennons-Imagine.html

"Celebrities including Yoko Ono, Hugh Jackman and Kary Perry have launched what they hope will be the world’s largest charity singalong of John Lennon’s Imagine.
Singers from around the world will appear on the UNICEF single, launched at the United Nations General Assembly, in order to raise awareness of the “rights of children”.
Singers including Björn Ulvaeus from ABBA, will.i.am, Nicole Scherzinger, will take turns to sing lines, as members of the public are invited to contribute.
Fans, and those wanting to donate to the cause, will be asked to sing their own version of the song, in what organisers hope will form the largest choir across the world.
Actors Idris Elba, Rumer Willis, and Courtney Cox, will join in on the song, accompanied by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and a children’s choir."

"Es ist ein Star-Aufgebot der Superlative. Nach dem Anfang der Woche bereits die neue Band Aid-Version von "Do They Know It’s Christmas" erschienen ist, haben jetztMusiker wie Bill Kaulitz, Katy Perry, will.i.am, David Guetta und Co. den Song "Imagine" von John Lennon aufgenommen - natürlich auch für den guten Zweck! Das Projekt, das von UNICEF kreiert wurde, feiert den 25. Geburtstag der UN-Kinderrechtskonvention.
Sogar Hollywood-Stars wie Nina Dobrev, Courteney Cox, Rumer Willis, Bollywoodstar Priyanka Chopra oder Topmodel Suki Waterhouse sind dabei.
Und auch du kannst Teil des Videos werden! Mit der #IMAGINE-App nimmst du deine eigene Version des Klassikers auf. Das Beste: Jeder - wirklich jeder!!! - der das macht, wird so ein Part eines neuen Remix' von "Imagine", den David Guetta dann an Neujahr veröffentlicht.
Wahnsinn! Schau dir hier das tolle Video von UNICEF zu "Imagine" an!"
