When OneRepublic's new video for their song "Feel Again" came out, I instantly fell in love with it. It's such a happy, uplifting song!
I recently received an email from the "Every Beat Matters" campaign informing me that "Feel Again" incorporates the heartbeats of children in Malawi and Guatemala into the song in an effort to raise awareness and funds to help save millions of children each year. Reading this made me fall even more in love with the song and OneRepublic!
A portion of “Feel Again” proceeds will benefit Save the Children’s Every Beat Matters™ campaign, which aims to bring basic lifesaving care to children around the world. Every year about 7 million children die before their 5th birthday—mostly from preventable and treatable causes, including pneumonia, diarrhea and newborn complications.
“We’re excited to team up with Save the Children to let people know we all have the power to help children survive,” said Ryan Tedder, lead singer of OneRepublic. “Feel Again is an opportunity for us to be the voices for these children. We hope the song they inspired will now inspire others to join the Every Beat Matters™ campaign.”
So not only can you enjoy such a beautiful song of life and hope, but you can help prevent and treat diseases such as pneumonia and malaria for children in need just by purchasing the song. To download "Feel Again," click here.
