Music connects us to our causes

John Lennon imagine

At #15NTC this week in Austin, Texas, FrontStream is excited to spread the joy of music!

When attendees help us find Frank the Pig, they’ll have a chance to win one of 70 iTunes gift cards and our grand prize, a stylish pair of Beats by Dr. Dre headphones!

There’s always been a great connection between popular music and important causes and movements, and we wanted to take some time to highlight some that stand out to us. We asked for suggestions around FrontStream, and here’s some of our highlights:

Where is the Love? – Black Eyed Peas

Tackling so many of the problems of our time, “Where is the Love?” reminds us the solutions started with us as individuals, and everyone could do their part to be more caring and helpful.

Pride (In the Name Of Love) – U2

U2 is known for their cause-focused rock anthems, and their 1984 hit is one of the most memorable. With lyrics about Martin Luther King, Jr., the song pays tribute to a true American hero whose impact on the civil rights movement will never be forgotten.

R.E.S.P.E.C.T. – Aretha Franklin

The chorus may be as famous as any American song, but it’s the women’s rights message at the core of the 1967 song that continues to resonate just as strongly today.

Beautiful – Christina Aguilera

With lyrics and a video alluding to the challenges of being different, “Beautiful” has remained an empowering anthem for believing in one’s true beauty for the 13 years since its initial release.

Imagine – John Lennon

John Lennon’s longing for world peace is captured in the “Imagine”, which is often ranked among the best songs of all time. The masterpiece stands out with not only audiences but musicians too, with over 160 recorded covers of the song from superstars including Elton John, Madonna and Ray Charles.
