Talent and Flexibility:
Young Celebrities Help Japan
By Cynthia Price, Director of Communications
Children helping children is the idea behind the music video “If the Earth Could Speak.”
Pulled together in the wake of the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan in March, it originated with Evelyn Vaccaro, a spokesperson for ChildFund International. “I’d been thinking about how children could sing on behalf of children to benefit children,” Vaccaro says. “When the Japan earthquake and tsunami struck, I felt helpless, but then I thought a music video could be a way to help.”
The result is the music video by “We Are the World” Grammy-winning director Tom Trbovich, Billboard-winning producer Drew Lane (High School Musical) and Vaccaro. Lane and Vacarro co-wrote “If the Earth Could Speak” with teen star Daniel Curtis Lee. The worldwide launch of the video happened earlier this month in Los Angeles as part of a “Kids Helping Kids: Japan” fundraising event.
“I was hoping that with their voices, these Hollywood teen and child music artists could communicate a powerful message to each other and the world that they have the power to make a difference for their future,” Vaccaro says.
Among the teen celebrities participating are Sam Stone, Coco Jones, Marielle Jaffe, Joseph Castanon, Devon Werkheiser, Ivory Cunanan, Caitlin Taylor Love, Ryan Newman, Zach Callison, Lauren Taveras, Samantha Boscarino, Sabrina Carpenter, Sacha Edwards and Chris Trousdale. Many others performed in the chorus.
ChildFund is working with its global Alliance partner ChildFund Japan to speed response to children affected by the disaster.
‘Her flexibility and ability to self-direct make working with her priceless. She is a natural talent on camera and pleasingly natural in person’.
