OAKLAND, Calif., March 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Music duo, Marky & Glen, announced the release of their debut single to help raise awareness for the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. Released by Bacolod Music, "Love Unites the World" speaks to the shared humanity of all people, calling for listeners to build anew in the spirit of hope rather than succumb to doubt, war, and sorrow. Written to help soothe broken hearts, the song and video are available for preview on YouTube and as a single purchase via iTunes and Amazon Music. Funds raised from music sales go to various Bacolod charities, while Marky & Glen are also sponsoring a Save the Children campaign to help ease the suffering of Ukraine children caught in the conflict.
"It’s hard to believe the world we know; Now full of doubt and a cloud of sorrow…"
Deeply entwined in the lyrics and inspirational rock chords, blended with gospel-like harmonies and slow guitar riffs, "Love Unites the World" is a love song for peace.
"This song began with the COVID-19 pandemic, because music became an excellent channel for us to cope with the depressing quarantine," said Mark. "We shared our work online when live performances became impossible and we wrote songs that tried to keep hope alive. But this song’s relevance keeps growing every day. And now, with the ongoing war in Ukraine that is destroying communities and families, we want to touch as many hearts as possible and call for peace. For our children’s sake."
