156 Countries Sing Together

On December 7th, 2009 at 1:30pm musicians from all around the world came together and shared a song.  At that  moment musicians from 156 countries played "All You Need is Love" together.

Lend your own voice to  Watch streaming video from countries around the world and then join in by singing "All You Need is Love" yourself. For each video submitted, Starbucks will make a contribution to the Global Fund to help fight AIDS in Africa. You can also help increase the Starbucks contribution to the Global Fund by submitting a drawing to the Love Gallery.

The global sing-along is part of continuing efforts to help fight AIDS in Africa. In just one year in partnership with (RED)™, Starbucks has generated money equivalent to more than 7 million days of medicine to help those living with HIV in Africa. (RED), created by Bono and Bobby Shriver, is a brand designed to engage business and consumer power in the fight against AIDS in Africa. (RED) works with the world's biggest brands to make unique RED-branded products and direct up to 50% of their gross profits to the Global Fund to invest in African AIDS programs, with a focus on the health of women and children.
