WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW

The song is half a century old, but its message is as vital as ever: "What the World Needs Now" gets a tender new take from Verve Forecast artists (and Grammy Best New Artist nominees) Tank and the Bangas in this touching clip.

“In January, Yahoo gave us the opportunity to call some of our artist friends in New Orleans to help us record" the song, says the group's Tarriona Tank Ball, "and it was one of the most powerful moments I’ve ever experienced in a room full of artists. It was so New Orleans. The voices of the children, the poets, the different tones and textures of all the artist was truly transforming. I believe that everyone can testify how high the emotions ran this particular day. It’s my hope that people will become moved, active, and use love in their weaponry in fighting for what they believe is right.” 

The group also invites the community to support the Black Lives Matter Global Network and the Equal Justice Initiative.

Check the song out and spread the love.
