Charlie Puth has teamed up with James Taylor to release the brand new track “Change”, which he dedicated to those who have lost their lives due to gun violence.
Puth, 26, unveiled the new music video for the song Tuesday, with him filming the clip during his performance at the March For Our Lives Los Angeles rally on Saturday.
“There’s such a theme of change happening,” the singer said at the start of the vid, before he proceeded to play the crowd his latest release.
Puth had previously said that the track was dedicated to “all of the Parkland students” after February’s horrific shooting, which saw 17 people get gunned down and killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida.
The singer shared a snap of himself on Instagram taken at Saturday’s protest, with him posing alongside two survivors and praising the girls for their bravery.
He said after releasing the “Change” vid, “Recording with James Taylor was a dream come true. He’s the reason why I write music and it was an absolute honour to work with him.”
“But performing ‘Change’ for the first time ever at March For Our Lives after meeting Mia and Hayley [two students from Parkland, FL], and feeling all of that emotion from the tens of thousands of people who came out to support them is also something that I’ll never forget.”
Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, and Ariana Grande took the stage to perform in Washington, D.C., to back the Parkland students in the gun control march.
Amy Schumer also delivered a powerful speech at the Los Angeles rally, hitting out at the National Rifle Association, asking: “How do they sleep at night? You are killing children.”
