Today sees the release of Melody Gardot’s new single From Paris With Love.
Last month Gardot called out for musicians to work with and for fans to send in a video of themselves to accompany her new song project.
Following 1000’s of global submissions of fans holding messages of love , the video was constructed around the song.
Gardot explains, “This project is a stunning example of how music is a universal language and how our global awareness is greater than ever. Seeing what’s happening around the world, we cannot ignore our need for love and connection during this time. I am so happy to see the generous response displayed in the vast array of characters, from all corners of the globe, coming together to create this unique piece of music. It is a symbolic gesture for the way we can offer hope as we look towards the idea of creation in the future.
This video is a kind of a digital postcard, made possible by the generous contributions of musicians and people currently confined. My hope, is that this message will continue to find its way around the world and bring hope where hope is most needed to leave us all feeling more connected. My most heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in the making of this project.”
