Sean Paul Set to Perform at the Rally for Moral Action on Climate Change

Multi-platinum Dancehall artiste Sean Paul will join British singer Natasha Bedingfield in performance at the Rally for Moral Action on Climate Justice at the National Mall in Washington DC on Thursday, September 24.

The event which will feature several government officials, religious leaders such as Reverend Pedro Jimeno Barreto and Archbishop of Huancayo, Dolores Huerta, climate justice activists Moby, Rev. William Barber, and an all-star line-up of musicians aims to encourage leaders to take a stance for climate justice. 

Pope Francis, will also be lending his support to this historic event and is expected to speak at the rally. The Rally for Moral Action on Climate Justice is part of the activities to mark the Pope’s first visit to the US.

On the heels of the release of the Full Speed Riddim, Sean Paul continues to broaden his horizon and eyes this production as another opportunity to spread a positive message.  
“I thought it was a great cause in helping people to be aware of the environment and for charity so I did it right away. I am all for the environment. Every day I take pictures of the sun because I like nature a lot. I didn’t know who else was featured on the song. Toby played a couple parts of the chorus for me and I just did my thing. I really liked it, it was cool and every time I hear the song it gives me goose bumps. I think it is a good song."

Dancehall artiste Sean Paul and British singer Natasha Bedingfield joined forces to collaborate with a vast selection of artistes to include; UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Angelique Kidjo, female powerhouse Nicole Scherzinger, Fergie, Sheryl Crow, Leona Lewis, Christina Grimmie, Victoria Justice, Germany-born American singer, and activist Q'Orianka Kilcher, country music singer Kelsea Ballerini, pop singer Colbie Caillat, EDM duo Krewella alongside Johnny Rzeznik, Jon Bon Jovi and Paul McCartney.

Love Song to the Earth features the Grammy Award winning dancehall superstar as a co-writer along with Toby Gad, John Shanks and Bedingfield. The single is in support of the UN’s aim to reach over 100 nations, to adopt cleaner and healthier habits to prevent global warming from reaching more dangerous levels.
The single debuted on Billboard's Pop Digital Songs chart with 11,000 downloads in its first-week and is available exclusively on iTunes and Apple Music via Connect.

Sean Paul is expected to perform Foxwood Casino in Connecticut on Saturday, September 26 before jetting off to Portland, Maine on Sunday, September 27.
