Money Rains Down in Carnaby Street London

Carnaby Street Cash Drop 2 - Melody GardotToday hundreds of biodegradable reproduction bank notes were released from a roof top in Carnaby Street, London by Grammynominated singer songwriter Melody Gardot – much to the delight of passers by.

Gardot, who is set to release her album ‘Currency of Man’ on 1st June, is in town this week to perform live on Later With Jools Holland, BBC2 tomorrow night.

The bank notes released featured a picture of Melody Gardot on each side, in a statement Gardot says, “What is out worth, and how do we define it? Is it down to money? Is it down to legacy? The ‘Currency of Man’ is about our worth in this world and how everyone, no matter their status, or origins or colour of their skin, holds a purpose.”Melody Gardot billboards London

Two blank billboards were previously erected in Kensington and Loughborough Junction, London, for passers-by to answer the question posed by Melody: “What is our worth? How do we define it?” This has already attracted the public contributions with their thoughts on this burning philosophical question.
