All-Star Celebrity Chorus have launched a new song & music video encouraging registration and voting. Fergie and dozens of celebrities encourage millions of Americans to register and vote.
In celebration of National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, September 25, The Voter Participation Center joined with Balcony Films for a release of a new music video and original song, “L.O.V.E. (Let One Voice Emerge),” urging women and other unregistered voters to head to the ballot box on November 6.
“Let one voice emerge, let your voice be heard” at the voting booth, the song reminds voters.Unmarried women, persons of color and young people – the Rising American Electorate – comprise 53 percent of the voting eligible population, and yet more than 63 percent of them are unregistered.
“We felt a music video with incredible star power in recognition of National Voter Registration Day would be an attention-getting way to encourage all eligible Americans to participate in our great democracy,” says Page Gardner, President of the Voter Participation Center. “The message is simple: Get registered and get to the polls on November 6. Let the voice of one join the voices of millions and be heard.”
The video and other multimedia assets are available here.
“L.O.V.E. (Let One Voice Emerge)“ was co-written by Grammy-winning artist Patti Austin, Grammy-winner and twice Oscar-nominated singer/songwriter Siedah Garrett, five-time Grammy-winning producer/composer Mervyn Warren, and Grammy and Tony-nominated songwriter/artist Brenda Russell. The song was produced and arranged by Mervyn Warren. The new music video features hit artists Fergie (Black Eyed Peas), Keke Palmer (actress/recording artist), Patti Austin (entertainer/song writer), Siedah Garrett (song writer and performer), Sheila E (musician/actress), Brenda Russell (songwriter), Judith Hill (singer/songwriter), Lalah Hathaway (R&B artist), and Jenna Ushkowitz (“Glee”).
