Lebanese singer/actor Abbas Jaafar has joined some of the biggest names around the world in singing the charitable song “You Are Not Alone.”
The song by American artist and United Nations NGOCSD-NY Celebrity Youth Activist, Meredith O’Connor, who is referred to as an anti-bullying icon, features prominent international celebrities coming together for the cause.
The international celebrity roster is impressive with top musicians in K-pop, Afropop, Bollywood, and the participation of American YouTuber and pop-singer Rebecca Black, who is heard by millions, and sang with Katy Perry.
Among the first to join the charitable initiative was the music legend and founding member of The Supremes, Mary Wilson, who passed away shortly after the song premiered.
This was her last tweet:
Announced on World Mental Health Day, the initiative has benefitted NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and is raising awareness on mental illness, especially to those suffering any.
The song is brilliant and has been touring the world with this video:
