This music video is a testament to what can be achieved through the spirit of heart-felt team-work. It shows what we can achieve as a collective when we, as humans, put our hearts and minds together collaboratively with the intent to create something meaningful, something of beauty. We truly hope that this spirit will now be given to you and the world through this gift of art.

So, please watch and listen with joy, sing along and share with the whole world so that the love, joy and the spirit of collaboration we had in making this video can in some way make the world a better place.

This project was created in the hope that the growing division we have witnessed this last year would, in some small way, be bridged through the power of our art. Polarising issues, societal pressure and often conflicting information all help to alienate the individual from what she or he once knew our world to be. We would like to remind everyone through our musical and visual message that even as we are all unique individuals we all still essentially remain – human.

The positive vibration of music and art has always connected humanity, easily transcending cultural and language barriers. It is in this understanding that we share the spirit of this work of ours with the wish that we may collectively begin to re-connect all again – as one.

With this work we also honour Freddie Mercury who with his singular talent changed the nature of modern music. May the question “Who wants to live forever?” also lead us all to question what actually “living” means today.
