Pharrell Williams has been named creative director of a project in which he will curate a second series of Live Earth gigs on all seven continents. He is teaming up with Al Gore for the initiative.
Wms. and co. hope to stage these Live Earth shows on June 18 and to broadcast them to an estimated TV audience of two billion across 200 channels.
Do the math and it will equal "AWESOME."
"Instead of just having people perform, we literally are going to have humanity harmonize all at once... At the previous shows, you would have pundits and comedians who didn't understand global warming and we were often ridiculed. We wanted to do something very different this time," Williams, who worked on a similar Live Earth project in 2007, said about the upcoming project.
The concerts will feature 100 artists across the seven shows, with each event lasting up to six hours.
Again, do the math and you will come up with "AWESOME!"
Performers are TBD for now.
Anyone plan to tune in? Are you concerned about global warming?
