Kids From 130 Different Countries Remake P!nk's 'What About Us' for World Children's Day
Prior to World Children's Day on Nov. 20, Pink teamed up with UNICEF for an all-new take on her recent hit "What About Us." Children from across the globe were tapped to sing and dance along to the track for a new music video in celebration of the holiday.
In a statement, Pink explained, “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."
The United Nations, along with many world leaders have already planned to take part in a kids-takeover on Nov. 20, stepping down briefly from their powerful roles and letting a child step in for the day. French President Emmanuel Macron, Jordanian Prime Minister Hani Al-Mulki, Chilean President Michelle Bachelet and Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar are among the government heads that will temporarily vacate their positions for a child-leader to take over.
Pink added to this in her statement, saying, "I am excited to lend What About Us to a global kids take over on Nov. 20 as we celebrate the power of kids around the world speaking out about the issues that affect them.”
There is still time to participate in the "What About Us" children's takeover. Schools and families are encouraged to send in clips of themselves participating in the same fashion as the current video, for a chance to be included in the final copy to be released next month.
