will.i.am and Sting Release New Versions of Protest Songs for The ONE Campaign...
The ONE Campaign has released new videos of Grammy award-winning artists Sting and will.i.am, performing the songs "Driven To Tears" and “It’s a New Day” respectively, as part of the agit8 campaign to raise global awareness about extreme poverty.
The artists join more than 50 musicians – including Usher, U2, Mumford and Sons, Ed Sheeran, Bruce Springsteen, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and others – who have released classic protest songs in an effort to highlight the power of music to change the world.
will.i.am’s new version of ''It’s a New Day'' was recorded in a studio in London, while Sting’s rendition of "Driven To Tears" was filmed on his Back to Bass tour at Chastain Park Amphitheater in Atlanta. Check out Sting's video at http://bit.ly/1cpu0eU
