Let’s Come Together and Sing for Change

Hello world,

a while ago my talented friend Jihae had the idea to start a beautiful initiative to help the overwhelming global refugees crisis in most continents through music, I was very happy to contribute and help producing this project along with Oscar-winner score producer Teese Gohl.

Now it’s a reality: Let’s Come Together is an interactive musical peace movement to activate the public’s participation in supporting UNHCR and NGOs in their fight for human rights in the midst of a global refugee crisis through the power of music.

Every week starting November 5th 2015 until December 7th, a group or a choir will perform “Let’s Come Together” and record the video of the performance to share on social media. The Putney School in Vermont has already launched the project with Jihae and Teese a few days ago.

We invite you to do the same! You don’t have to be a singer or a musician to participate, just gather your tribe of friends and sing.

Share a video recording of your version of “Let’s Come Together” on http://www.facebook.com/LetsComeTogether7 with hashtags #SaveRefugees #LetsComeTogether #UNHCR


LET’S COME TOGETHER

Words & Music by JiHAE
Arrangement by Teese Gohl
Production by Simone Giuliani and Teese Gohl

Let’s come together in one harmony
Let’s come together as one family
Since only love can heal the world
Let’s plant love and hope in every boy and girl

Let’s come together as one heart and soul
To brighten the weather and to break the mold
Since only love can heal the world
Let’s plant love and hope in every boy and girl

Come let’s come together for everyone’s freedom across the lands
Oh let hope overflow from the cold river to our loving hands

Let’s come together and sing a new song
A song full of laughter, a song of joy
Since only love can heal the world
Let’s plant love and hope in every boy and girl
Together we can heal the world
Let’s plant love and hope in every boy and girl

On Dec 7, 2015 we are inviting people of all ages, races, nationalities and voices across the globe to gather together and sing at a public place in your town. Be sure to post  the time and location of your singing gathering on: www.facebook.com/LetsComeTogether7

Please also visit Jihae’s ‘Causes’ page for a lot of useful information about the refugee crisis and more details about this project.

“We don’t choose the place we are born, just as we don’t choose to live where natural disaster strikes. If we turn our backs on innocent children and families that have been stripped of everything but their lives, can we expect the world to do anything different if misfortune befalls us?

Each time the international community chooses to ignore international law due to fear and xenophobia, our civilization deteriorates further. If we use race and religion as a reason to ignore people’s right to freedom, can we expect others to do anything different to us?”
