RESIDENTS ARE INVITED TO UPLOAD THEIR OWN VIDEO SINGING 'WE ARE FAMILY"
A special edition cover of Sister Sledge’s timeless hit We Are Family will be released in a new and inspiring call for global solidarity to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and to generate proceeds to address the most pressing global health challenges of our time.
The initiative is being launched by The World We Want, the global social impact enterprise, and Kim Sledge, part of the legendary multi-Gold and Platinum recording music group, in benefit of the WHO Foundation, and supported by the World Health Organization (WHO).
The announcement was made by Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Director-General of the World Health Organization, Natasha Mudhar and Kim Sledge in a virtual press conference on Monday, 19 October, coinciding with the 75 years of the United Nations.
In support of the song’s release, a call is being launched on the 19th of October for people worldwide to submit videos of themselves singing We Are Family for inclusion in a unique and inspiring compilation video for release on 7 December 2020. This video will honor the incredible work of the frontline workforces risking their lives around to save ours, and all those around the world who have been affected by the pandemic.

The inspiration to release a special edition of the classic track came early this 2020 as communities around the world were left reeling from the impact of COVID-19. #wearefamily
