(To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and raise the awareness among the public of CRC, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Jackie Chan introduced the UNICEF anthem to draw the worlds attention to childrens rights.
"Hello everyone. I'm Jackie Chan. November the 11th is International Children's Day, and it's also UNICEF's 20th anniversary. Over the past 20 years, UNICEF has continuously promoted the awareness of children's rights, protected the dignity of children, and have ensured that children receive sufficient love and care. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of UNICEF and upholding children rights, we especially composed a song in the hope of dissolving the borders between different customs, cultures and nationalities. We hope to use our music to unite our strength and efforts for children. Please continue to support UNICEF. Thank you very much, thank you."
This is the anthem:
'Lullaby: The UNICEF Anthem' is a new composition by UNICEF Canada Ambassador Steve Barakatt.
The Anthem was composed to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Produced in collaboration with other UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors, musicians and video artists from around the globe, Lullaby is dedicated to the world's children and the realization of their rights. Mr. Barakatt also directed this music video featuring stirring images from UNICEF's photography archive (second director Allan Legarth Nielsen) .
