World Citizen Artists
Raising Global Awareness through Creativity
Citizen of the World by BélO (Haiti)
WORLD CITIZEN ARTIST AWARD WINNER 2014 (MUSIC)
Being involved in many humanitarian causes, I always wanted to join a world movement that is related to humanitarian causes. When I saw the "World Citizen Artists competition" announcement, I felt that I had to apply and enter my song "Citizen of the World". I created this song in March 2013 because I believe that Citizen of the World identifies each continent as its own individual entity then merges them into one body. Bringing to the forefront the issue of disunity, and pointing out the fact that we are all part of "One planet, One silhouette." The lyric reinforces the vision that people all over the world are connected. No matter where we land, we are home. We are citizens of the world.
The strong message promotes global peace, and unity among the people throughout the world. This planet belongs to us, and as its inhabitants, we need to nurture and protect the love and peace that comes with the responsibility of being citizens of the world. The rhythm is sensual as well as spiritual. The melody mimics a stroll across the nations. The beauty of the stroll is that each country that is visited feels like home. There is no hostility or intimidation, but there is acceptance and peace. If we close our eyes and bring the words to life in our mind, we can actually feel ourselves soaring throughout the world. We all share the same stamp on our passports as citizens of the world.
Citizen of the World purpose is to plant the seed of global peace and unity in the minds of the listeners. Music has a way of bringing individuals together in times of crisis and pain, as well as times of joy and triumph. This particular song reminds us that unity and peace are on the horizon. We can all come together and live as one people. Citizen of the World has the power to connect us all, "One big ocean, One vibration".
