#ThatPower of #WhereIsTheLove
It’s not often that I get enthusiastic about an artist re-doing one of their songs, and, indeed, when I heard that Black Eyed Peas had made a new version of “Where Is The Love”, I got worried.
I understood why they felt the need to do it. Just turn on the news and you start to wonder what happened to the world and the people in it, so the message of the song is just as accurate today as it was when it was initially released, in 2003.
When I heard all kinds of celebrities got involved in the video, I still wasn’t really triggered to hear it. Yep, I was still worrying. After all, it’s still a charity song and that can become pretty cheesy, but when I saw the amount of views the video had received, I thought it probably wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.
