"8 Goals For Africa" Fuels UN Millennium Development Goals


8 Goals For Africa from 8 Goals For Africa on Vimeo.


Thanks to Michael Fleshman for the heads up on this:
Eight of Africa's best known musicians have written and performed a song and accompanying music video entitled "8 Goals For Africa" as a part of the United Nation's Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The campaign began at the Millennium Summit in 2000, where 170 heads of state committed their nations to a global partnership with an eight-point agenda to reduce extreme poverty by 2015. The video will stream during the World Cup and all across public viewing areas. On the day of the finals, the artists will perform at the Soccer City Fan Fest in Johannesburg. The video features Baaba Maal, Angelique Kidjo, Oliver Mtukuzi and Hugh Masekela.  Check out their website for more information.
