Some people are talking about the floods in Pakistan, some people are reading about them. Some people are learning about them, and some people are signing about them. Yep, that’s right: singing.
We all grew up hearing that we could use our talents to make the world a better place, and there are a group of people taking it seriously.
Superstars “for Flood Relief” are some big-name stars who already have radio hits, but are rededicating tunes to flood victims in order to help get the word out.
According to their site, the goal of their movement is to “stir emotions globally, and increase awareness about the devastation continually being caused by the Flood in Pakistan before the situation worsens.” Their most important aim is to “prevent a second disaster of chronic diseases, malnutrition and poverty.” The Superstars ask fans to donate, and suggest organizations (including WFP!) for concerned fans to give to. You can listen to the songs on the site, as well as check out new artists preparing to join the cause. These stars are huge in the countries they perform in, so it's also a great chance to hear some music from around the globe!
Even though media attention has lessened, Pakistan continues to face enormous threats to life. Movements like these are important in order to keep the eyes of the world watching, the hands of the world helping, and (according to the Superstars!) to keep the ears of the world listening.
