We can’t tell you how heart-warming this little number is – the sentiments might be laid on thick but there’s more than a hint of humour in it, it’s not your traditional angsty protest song. As Rosenberg writes on his site: “Let me start by saying I have never felt the need to write a song like this before. I am by no means an expert in global politics nor feel that my opinion should be any more valued than the next guy. I do feel however that we all have a responsibility to speak out about the things that we believe in, whatever they may be and in whatever fashion we choose. This should be a basic right for everybody.”
He goes on to say that “every penny that is made from sales, streams and views will be donated to a charity working on the front lines of the refugee phenomenon by providing search and rescue services in the Mediterranean to the men, women and children fleeing persecution and violence.” Do your bit by clicking play below.
