Lenny Kravitz's new single 'Here to Love' chosen as official theme song of UN Human Rights' #FightRacism campaign for 2020
In a video message, talking about the collaboration, the Grammy award-winning rockstar said "the most important thing is to let love rule" and "there is no place in this world for discrimination in any form, including racism"
It's been some time since we've had a musical anthem to band together behind. Well, Lenny Kravitz heard our plea and teamed up with the UN Human Rights Office to #FightRacism with his newest single release “Here To Love".
Released November 25, the song (an edited version) is part of the UN Human Rights' flagship campaign to fight racism. The single is available on all the major music platforms like Spotify, iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Music.
We can see why the song was ideal since its chorus proclaims "We're not here to judge/ We are here to love/ There's no room for hate/ We are just one human race/ We must rise above/ We are here to love".
In a message, spreading the love, the Grammy award-winning rockstar posted a video message about the single and his collaboration with the UN Human Rights office. In it, Kravitz said he believes "the most important thing is to let love rule," and "there is no place in this world for discrimination in any form, including racism".
The single is also part of Kravitz's 11th full-length album, 'Raise Vibration', released in September last year. As part of the #FightRacism campaign, the singer will also release a music video for the song in the coming weeks.
The announcement comes ahead of Human Rights Day on December 10. 'Here To Love' will be the theme song of the UN Human Rights Office’s #FightRacism campaign throughout 2020 and beyond.
According to the campaign's official website, "The song’s message of shared humanity will be used to help combat the global spread of hate speech and racism, and emphasize respect for human rights."
It also quotes Kravitz, who has faced discrimination because he is biracial, as saying: “Today xenophobia, hate speech, and intolerance are on the rise. So, let’s work together to eliminate the messages of hatred.” To pledge your support for the campaign, visit the #FightRacism campaign page.
