Would you like to sing “We Love the SDGs” with your class, team, or group? Now you have multiple tools available to you in one place — including a “karaoke” version (no lead vocal) of the recording.

Visit the updated web page for the song, music video, and related resources:

“We Love the SDGs” continues to be a popular resource, with over 30,000 views of the music video on YouTube. The song has been adopted by university choral groups, schoolteachers in India, and even a Girl Scout troop in Malaysia (who created a dance routine to go with the song).

17Goals has made available free audio files (in .mp3 format), a study guide to the lyrics, and a choral arrangement that vocal groups can download and learn.

Mixing pop, reggae, and rap beats, “We Love the SDGs” was first written and performed by Alan AtKisson, backed up by a stellar band of Swedish studio musicians. It was produced by Andreas Bauman and recorded in Stockholm in the fall of 2015, inspired by the launch of the SDGs that year.

Since then, the song has been used as an inspiring and fun musical interlude at meetings hosted by the United Nations, the European Commission, and many educational institutions. Subtitled versions of the music video are available in Chinese and Japanese. Go to the song website for more info >>
