Morgan Freeman Narrates 'A Love Letter from #EarthToParis'
Earth to Paris, a coalition of global partners driving awareness about the connection between people and planet, released a high impact video yesterday promoting the global #EarthToParis movement that took place Monday in Paris. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, the video serves as a crowdsourced love letter from Earth to Paris for world leaders to take action on climate change.
"Allegro Prestissimo,” performed by Yo-Yo Ma and Bobby McFerrin courtesy of Sony Music Entertainment, plays as the vibrant video reveals several famous #EarthtoParis supporters such as Richard Branson, Gisele Bündchen, Kid President (Robby Novak), Pharrell Williams, Cameron Russell, Ram Dass, Jack Black and many more. The video also includes an assortment of people from around the world who have sent video messages to their world leaders.
In the video, Freeman (as the Earth) reads, “Dear Paris, there is no voice more beautiful than the voice of the world speaking as one and the world has spoken. This is about all of us—everything we know, everyone we love and our survival.”
