Multi-platinum dancehall star Sean Paul brought down the curtains on the COP21 Climate Change Conference recently at Le Bourget with the environmental anthem Love Song to the Earth.

The event was highlighted by the video premiere of the Love Song to the Earth single and was climaxed by Sean Paul's performance closing out the day's activities.

The video featured appearances from Natasha Bedingfield, Paul McCartney, Sean Paul, dressed in white, delivering crisp compelling lyrics encouraging all to protect mother earth.

 

PREPARING FOR THE FUTURE

"Living on a small island, environmental changes are very obvious to me. Clean air and water are things we owe to our children and grandchildren, so if we don't act now, there will be no future. I'm happy to be able to be a part of this initiative because all proceeds of this song go towards helping the environment, so it's the least I can do," Sean Paul said after his performance.

Sean Paul was joined by Jerry Cope, organiser of the Love Song to the Earth single and video; Nick Nuttall, Momentum of Change; and the Secretary General of the United Nations (UN), Ban Ki-moon.

COP21 is headed by the UN and involved world leaders from across the globe assembling in Paris to show their support in helping to combat climate change. The event also gave recognition to persons who have had a global impact on the environment at the Momentum of Change Award Ceremony.

The COP21 UN Framework on Climate Change, which started on Monday, November 30, will end today.
