Pink is helping kick off World Children’s Day with a brand new video. Only this time, it’s not her singing: it’s kids from more than 130 countries around the world.
People reports the singer is teaming up with UNICEF to commemorate the annual day in support of children to organize a global child “takeover.”
The Presidents of France and Chile, and the Prime Ministers of Jordan and Ireland, along with mayors and other politicians around the world will temporarily resign their posts to let children take on their duties.
As part of the effort, Pink gave UNICEF her hit song “What About Us”, letting kids from all over the globe record themselves singing it, and putting it all together in a brand new collaborative music video.
“This World Children’s Day, I am teaming up with UNICEF to remind the world that children and young people’s voices matter and that their perspectives must be included in the decisions that will shape their future,” said Pink in a statement. “I am excited to lend ‘What About Us’ to a global kids takeover on Nov. 20 as we celebrate the power of kids around the world speaking out about the issues that affect them.”
Kids are being encouraged to learn a special new dance move and submit recordings of themselves to be featured in the final video, which will be released next month.
Pink was appointed an ambassador to UNICEF in 2015, focusing on healthy active lifestyles and nutrition, and serving as a spokesperson for their Kid Power initiative.
