“It’s my hope that we add to this simple song in every language from every nation as we let it become a prayer for our whole world!” Perry said in two Instagram posts.

Perry, 50, kicked things off, singing the song himself in the first video. He then passed it along to familiar faces, including Jennifer Hudson, Yolanda Adams, and Travis Greene.
