AFP reports that Marion Cotillard, Guillaume Canet, Mélanie Laurent et Vincent Pérez among other stars will be recording a song during the Cannes Film Festival for the “Global Humanitarian Forum” – a foundation presided over by Kofi Annan. The song should help sensitize the public as well as politicians for the protection of our planet. Other celebrities who’ll be lending their voice to the song include Bill Clinton, Clint Eastwood and tennis champion Yannick Noah.
The song will be a new version of “Beds Are Burning” by Midnight Oil (listen to the original). The band has written new lyrics especially for this occasion. The song will be available as of June 25th to download for free. A representative of the band’s music label “The Hours”, Alexandre Sap, want this to become the most downloaded song in the world.
