August 11, 2012 - Peace Mix
Peace has inspired some of the best songs ever – from Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On to Bob Marley’s One Love, Higher Ground by Stevie Wonder to Tupac’s Changes and most of Mos Def‘s back catalogue. Now you can be part of a new song for peace – a next generation anthem by young people from across the UK to inspire positive change.
We’ve partnered with cult online channel SB.TV to create a backing track inspired by New Day Foundation‘s track Going For Gold – their call to create peace, love and understanding in their hometown of Birmingham during the Olympic games 2012
But, we want YOU complete it – adding vocals, rhymes, melodies or remixes to our intro, chorus or one of three verses: grime, hip-hop or world music. Basically, any musical format as long your theme is peace!
