Playing For Change: United


When we are afraid of someone or something, it is because we do not feel that particular person or thing is a part of us. When we have established conscious oneness with the Absolute, with the Infinite Vast, then everything there is part of us. And how can we be afraid of ourselves? ~Sri Chinmoy~

In 2011, Playing For Change joined forces with the United Nations Population Fund and the Millennium Development Goals Achievement Fund for UNPF’s 7 Billion Actions campaign. By the end of that year, the world population reached 7 billion, and this global campaign strove to bring awareness to the opportunities and challenges that the population growth would present.

7 billion people means 7 billion hearts, and music has always been the best way to speak to the hearts of the people. Playing For Change traveled across the globe, put headphones on musicians, added them to the track, and created “UnitedĀ,” which serves as a tangible example of something positive we can all do together as a human race.



Lyrics and Translation:

I wanna see the world United and learn to live as one
I wanna see the world United and learn to live as one
I wanna see the world United and learn to live as one
I wanna see the world United and learn to live as one

We have to bring the world together
And learn to live as one
We have to bring the world together
And learn to live as one

We have to bring the world together
We have to live as one
We have to bring the world together
We shall overcome

We have to live as one

Lingala Verse

This is the answer for the people
Who lost their loved ones from war.
This is the answer for the people
Who lost their loved ones from hunger.

Spanish Verse

The moment is what counts
Live smiling until the end
But happy days will come
That nobody can believe

Hebrew Verse

It´s time to say,
We are all one heart
This song is of all of us
So let´s sing it together in one big voice.

Arabic Verse

Lord of peace….give us/ bring us/ gift us with peace
