Yann

Brazilian singer and songwriter Yann was able to cast a great number of pop stars for his new music video, "Igual." The song, which talks about freedom of love, is a manifesto about violence against LGBTQ people in Brazil and was released exclusively on Billboard Brazil.

More than 25 artists, including international and Brazilian stars, said "yes" to the project to show support to the cause: <a href="/music/Britney-Spears">Britney Spears</a>, <a href="/music/Celine-Dion">Céline Dion</a>, <a href="/music/Demi-Lovato">Demi Lovato</a>, <a href="/music/lorde">Lorde</a>, <a href="/music/diplo">Diplo</a> and <a href="/music/The-Chainsmokers">The Chainsmokers</a>. All of the proceeds from the sale and stream of the song will be donated to Grupo Arco-íris, an organization that helps the LGBTQ community.

Yann, who also directed the video, talks about the project: "Our plurality is enormous, and it would never be possible to represent every single one of us, but I hope this song and the support from everyone involved bring more visibility to the issue, so we can continue to make real progress and change the reality for the LGBTQ community."
