Vivendi is partnering with Grammy Award recipient Ricky Kej, for the My Earth Concert For Every Child on this World Music Day.
The Concert, in support of UNICEF’s work for children around the world, will be live-streamed and broadcast online globally. An ensemble cast of six Grammy Award-winning and two Grammy Nominee musicians from around the world that create music for children will perform songs composed for children that focus on raising awareness on environment protection and sustainability.
“Vivendi is delighted to support Ricky Kej on this collection of songs for children everywhere. Ricky’s commitment to spreading kindness and goodwill to better the planet is totally in line with what Vivendi is already doing with Paddington Bear and UNICEF. It is a wonderful message to be spreading after recent events across the globe. Thank you Ricky,” said Simon Gillham, Vivendi Senior Executive Vice President Communications and Member of the Management Board.
“If we want to create a more environmentally conscious society, then we have to reach out
to children, and the best way is through music. I am very excited to perform for the My
Earth Songs concert, which will provide much needed meaningful entertainment to
children, especially during these pandemic times. As a supporter of UNICEF, I encourage everyone to join us so that together we can Reimagine a better future for every child because children are the hidden victims of the COVID-19,” said Ricky Kej.
“Our vision at Vivendi and Havas is to make a meaningful difference through everything
we do. We are delighted to support Ricky’s endeavour to building a better planet by
harnessing the power of music through these songs for children that are both educative
and entertaining and look forward to enabling the message of kindness and goodwill
travel across the globe through this small step” said Vishnu Mohan, Chairman Havas
Group & Vivendi Committee for India & South East Asia.
The concert will feature select songs from the ‘My Earth Songs’ album, written by Ricky
Kej and launched jointly by Ricky Kej and UNICEF in 2018. The album with 27 songs for
children and young people highlights the situation of the planet and the actions we the
citizens of the planet need to take to ensure a clean, green and prosperous world for
future generations. They focus on the Sustainable Development Goals and are a great
learning tool for all children and adults.
The aim is to raise awareness around UNICEF’s response for children as the world grapples with the COVID-19 Pandemic. Donations received from this world-wide the concert will support UNICEF’s #Reimagine campaign that seeks to prevent the COVID-19 Pandemic from becoming a lasting crisis for children globally.
