The French DJ and the singer/songwriter's collaboration track is a part of UN's 'The World Need More' campaign, which allows big companies to sponsor words that they believe the world is lacking of.
French DJ David Guetta and singer/songwriter Mikky Ekko have teamed up to support humanitarian work around the world by collaborating on an inspirational track called "One Voice". Both stars have also dropped the accompanying music video.
The clip opens with Guetta standing on a stage in front of hundreds of fans to spread his message of unity. He tells them, "I see flags from Christian countries, Jewish countries, Muslim countries. And we are all together. It's the most beautiful thing in the world, it makes me shiver."
"One Voice" is a charity single for the 2013 World Humanitarian Day campaign by the UN. The campaign called "The World Needs More" allows each leading international companies to sponsor a hashtagged word they believe is lacking in the world. $1 will be donated for every sponsored word that people share on social media.
Companies involved in the campaign include Barclays Bank (#Inclusion), Western Union (#Education), Gucci (#Strength), Crescent Enterprises (#Entrepreneurs), KT (#Dreams), Intel (#Empowerment), GlaxoSmithKline (#Healthcare) and Sergio Vieira de Mello Foundation (#Dialogue).
"Together we can use our voices to make a real difference for people in need around the world. I am so honored to be part of this campaign," Guetta said of his involvement in a statement. "If we can make a change just by saying what the world needs now and raise money to help the UN by watching our video - wow. That's incredible."
"It's an honor and a privilege to be a part of this campaign," Ekko said. "It's humbling to see so many people rally for such an important global cause. Every person is a catalyst for change and I believe the world needs more #hope."
