For The Love of Music
If ever you were in doubt as to why on earth you shell out that TV license to the BBC annually, the corporation has gone out of its way to remind us exactly why it’s a national treasure- hence, why we should continue to fund it.
In a promo video for the launch of BBC music, some of music’s finest have come together to create what is simply…a beautiful work of art both lyrically and visually.
Artists including Mr ‘Happy’, Pharell Williams (who opens the show), One Direction, Emeli Sande, Stevie Wonder, Paloma Faith, Steve Martin and Sam Smith are just some of the A listers who joined in the collaboration for the cover of the 1966 Beach Boys classic ‘God only knows‘ ahead of the BBC children in need charity appeal.
The new platform is according to the Guardian, “An ambitious wave of new programmes, innovative partnerships and ground-breaking music initiatives that amount to the BBC’s strongest commitment to music in 30 years”.
