LNFSG On UN’s World’s Happiest Playlist

Sources: The Independent | All Things Michael


It might not bring peace to Syria and end global poverty but the United Nations has done its bit to increase international harmony by unveiling the “world’s happiest playlist.”

Ed Sheeran, James Blunt, David Guetta and John Legend were among the musicians and actors who contributed to the UN’s official feel-good selection, designed to spread cheer among listeners and raise awareness of the International Day of Happiness on March 20.

Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary general, led the way with his nomination for Signed Sealed Delivered by Stevie Wonder, himself a UN messenger of peace, who advocates on behalf of people with disabilities.

Ban said: “On this day we are using the universal language of music to show solidarity with the millions of people around the world suffering from poverty, human rights abuses, humanitarian crises and the effects of environmental degradation and climate change.”

The celebrity playlist created by MixRadio, and available for free on the website www.happysoundslike.com.
