In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women.
On February 24, UN Women launched in New York City. And Hope Sings was there - we created their theme song! Lyrics by me (Beth Blatt, founder of Hope Sings), music by Graham Lyle ("What's Love Got To Do With It") and Somalian/Brit singersongwrtier Clay.
It was so exciting, rehearsing in the General Assembly Hall (that's real gold leaf on those walls!). And hearing Ban Ki-Moon, Michelle Bachelet, Ted Turner, Geena Davis speak - with Shakira and Nicole Kidman sending video well-wishes - well, when history is being made, how cool is that?
Now, the video is up! See it on the home page at www.hopesings.net. Photos there too, behind-the-scenes videos on youtube http://www.youtube.com/user/hopesingsmicro?feature=mhum
