Video blog: World Humanitarian Day

Published: August 20, 2011

The music video “If I Could Change” was released on August 19th, 2011, on World Humanitarian Day. This music video makes an attempt to pay homage to humanitarian workers all around the world. The track features many popular superstars, such as, Bob Marley’s son Ziggy Marley, Somali sister-duo Sweet Rush and Salman Ahmad from the Pakistani band Junoon.

The singers urge the world to show greater compassion towards people, in an attempt to rid the world of suffering and fear. The video shows clips of children in refugee camps and hospitals. It also shows flooded fields and ruined buildings, all in an attempt to bring peoples’ attention to the immense suffering that is prevalent in the world we live in. On World Humanitarian Day, the message of this video is clear; let us help people and love them in order to make this world a better place.

“If I could change the world today

I’d turn the sky to blue from grey

Take away the hurt I see

Make sure that we all live happy.”
