Apple Promotes New Charitable Song #WHERESTHELOVE by Black Eyed Peas

Apple has added a banner on its homepage to promote the new song #WHERESTHELOVE, a reworked version of the 2003 smash hit "Where is the Love?" by The Black Eyed Peas. All proceeds raised from the song, which became available today on iTunes, will go to artist will.i.am's i.am.angel foundation, which funds educational programs and college scholarships in the United States.

The track, which features A$AP Rocky, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Kendall Jenner, DJ Khaled, and over a dozen other artists, was released in response to recent acts of violence and terrorism in cities around the world like Brussels, Dallas, Istanbul, Orlando, and Paris.
“I remember when the attack in Paris happened,” he says. “People would say, ‘We need Where Is The Love again,'” he says.

“And then Belgium happened, and then Turkey, and then Orlando, and then Philando, and Alto before him, and then Dallas. Everyone was calling on us, like, ‘We need that song again.'”
William Adams, known as will.i.am, tweeted that he and Apple retail chief Angela Ahrendts will be at Apple Union Square in San Francisco tonight at 7:00 p.m. local time to discuss #WHERESTHELOVE and College Track, a college completion nonprofit that empowers students from underserved communities to graduate from college.
In related charitable news, Apple is now accepting Red Cross donations via iTunes to support relief efforts in central Italy following a magnitude 4.6 earthquake on August 24. Donation tiers available include $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, and $200. All proceeds from donations are sent to the American Red Cross and split with ongoing Louisiana flooding relief efforts.

Though I'm far from a fan of Will.I.Am's music, and pretty much baselessly judged him on that for a long time, the first interview I ever watched with him in was Top Gear. Suffice it to say I was eating my hat within no time at all and asking for second servings.

He seems to be a really genuine, kind person, and very intelligent too.

I can make it political in a second.
Song --> Apple --> Black Eyed Peas --> Ireland --> Taxes --> Potato Soup --> Faked Moon Landings --> Trump vs Hillary.

Easy connections.
