We Are One!

Earlier this year, Childhood Cancer International, the largest patient support organization for childhood cancer with 181 member organizations in 90 countries, teamed up with Christophe Beck, famous for his creation of the soundtrack to Disney’s smash hit Frozen, and his 12-year-old daughter to record a new song, “We Are One,” written just for International Childhood Cancer Day (February 15th). While the verses are sung by up-and-coming musical talents including Sophie Beck, Alexa Curtis (winner of The Voice Kids Australia 2014), Livvy Stubenrauch (the voice of Anna in Disney’s Frozen), and Robbie Firmin (Britain’s Got Talent), the chorus is a global choir of all the children who participated in this amazing event! The creative responses have been overwhelming with More than 900,000 children and teens recorded their voices singing the chorus to the song, creating dances, lip-syncing videos, and even creating some amazing covers! Here is the official video below. Enjoy!
