JP Saxe and Julia Michaels today released a new video of their heart-rending duet, “If The World Was Ending,” to help support the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in its global response to COVID-19. MSF is caring for patients suffering from COVID-19, offering health education and mental health support, and providing training for vital infection control measures in health facilities around the world. JP, Julia, and Sony Music Entertainment will donate all proceeds from the video to Doctors Without Borders.
The video features an array of talent including Alessia Cara, H.E.R, Keith Urban, Kesha, Niall Horan, Sam Smith, and more.
The video also features producer of “If The World Was Ending,” FINNEAS. The song was originally written by JP and Julia following devastating earthquakes in Los Angeles last July. In the wake of the current global pandemic, the song’s powerfully relevant message resonated with both artists and their fans across the globe.
JP and Julia talking about the video
“We are so grateful for the incredible work being done by those on the frontlines during this global pandemic. We asked some of our friends to sing this song with us to help benefit an organization very close to our hearts, Doctors Without Borders, where all proceeds received by Sony Music and the artists from the video will be donated. At a time when it can sometimes feel like ‘the world is ending,’ we thank all of the healthcare workers, first responders, and essential workers who are helping so many people in need. Please stay home, stay safe (and don’t actually go over!).”
