John Legend Pens Song for World Refugee Day


Grammy-Award winning artist John Legend is putting his songwriting talents to a worthy cause.  On June 20, in honor of World Refugee Day, Legend alongside Toby Gab wrote “Peace,” a song dedicated to over 40 million people around the world who have fled their homes due to conflict or violence.

Recorded by US X-Factor’s Diamond White, the song will be released in support of United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees “1 Family” campaign, which sheds light on the devastating impact of war and persecution on families.

The inspirational tune will release exclusively on World Refugee Day (June 20). The  message of the record is to help spread awareness on the crucial issues involving countries like Syria, Somalia, South Sudan, Congo and Mali. To reach a much younger audience, the song can be heard on their mobile devices by downloading  the mPowering Action (mPA) app.

“We wanted to release this song on World Refugee Day to draw attention to the millions of families, like yours and mine, uprooted by war to help youth connect through the mPowering Action mobile application to these global issues,” said Gab.
