This past September, I had the opportunity to attend TomorrowWorld, the sister of the most famous electronic music festival, TomorrowLand, which takes place every summer in Belgium.

During his live set on the closing night of TomorrowWorld, David Guetta announced that he was teaming up with the United Nations and other international aid organizations to launch the video for his newest release "One Voice".

Those in the audience at Guetta's set had the opportunity to view the video for the first time before the official release, pulling on the heartstrings of hundreds of thousands of music fans in the crowd.

A few months later in New York City, the video was projected onto the exterior of the United Nations Headquarters building during a special launch event.

David Guetta produced "One Voice" specifically for the United Nations. Before premiering the video to his TomorrowWorld crowd, Guetta stated, "Music is a powerful way to connect and bring people together. Together we can use our voices to make a real difference for people in need around the world.

I am so honored to be part of this campaign. If we make a change just by saying what the world needs and raise money to help the United Nations - wow, that's incredible.

I want the video to show just what the United Nations does to help people and use my community to share this, and them with their friends. I collaborate in my music, I want us all to collaborate in this."

The video for "One Voice" is in support of "The World Needs More ____" campaign set out to raise funds for humanitarian emergencies around the world. The campaign enables leading brands to sponsor a specific word they believe the world could use more of. Each time these words are shared on Twitter or through the campaign's website, $1 is donated and unlocked to support aid efforts in the world's most under-funded crises.

This campaign is literally turning people's words into action.

"The World Needs More ____" launched on World Humanitarian Day on August 19th, and the video was launched last month to raise funds to directly donate to ease the devastation in the Philippines caused by Typhoon Haiyan.

By supporting a sponsored word through the double hashtag #theworldneedsmore #"yourword", $1 will be donated to humanitarian aid or to raise awareness. The campaign will run until New Year's Eve, and the act is simple and easy.
