United

Synopsis

7 Billion People | 7 Billion Actions | 7billionactions.org

In 2011, Playing For Change joined forces with the United Nations Population Fund and the Millennium Development Goals Achievement Fund for UNFPA’s 7 Billion Actions campaign. By the end of that year, the world population reached 7 billion, and this global campaign strove to bring awareness to the opportunities and challenges that the population growth would present. 7 billion people means 7 billion hearts, and music has always been the best way to speak to the hearts of the people. We traveled across the globe, put headphones on musicians, added them to the track, and created “United”, which serves as a tangible example of something positive we can all do together as a human race.

Let’s inspire each other. Let’s everybody get involved and join us on in this journey, so that together we leave this world better than we found it. To learn more about how to be part of the “United” track go to 7BillionActions.org.

This song is now featured as a bonus track on our brand new PFC3: Songs Around The World Vinyl Album!
