05 Oct Celebrity single in honour of the late Sir Roger Moore released to raise money for charity
A single featuring over 50 celebrities, including Liam Neeson, Natalie Dormer, David Walliams, Joanna Lumley and HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, has been released in memory of the late James Bond legend, Sir Roger Moore.
Co-written and sung by Moore’s son, Geoffrey, with the legendary Nile Rodgers, Glee star Naya Rivera and dancer Julianne Hough, and with a video co-produced by his granddaughter, Ambra, the catchy single, U.N.I (You & I), is a playful celebration of friendship and togetherness.
A donation from sales and downloads of the original single will go to UNICEF, an organisation for whom the actor was a Goodwill Ambassador from 1991 throughout the rest of his life.
The video – which is believed to be the biggest lip-syncing collaboration ever made – stars a host of global celebrities, including Sir Michael Caine, Dame Joan Collins, Piers Morgan, Paris Hilton, Stephen Fry, Graham Norton, singing along to the tune. It also features the last filmed sequences of Moore.
Geoffrey Moore says: “Making this single was a hugely enjoyable experience and it’s brought together many of my dad’s closest friends and our family. Now we want to use it to raise money for a good cause. My dad was a huge supporter of UNICEF and the wonderful work they do for children around the world and I’m proud of the legacy he has left us.”
Joanna Lumley says: “This project was so much fun to be part of. It’s great to be featured alongside so many others and I hope our involvement can help take this brilliant idea to a global audience, so we can raise money and awareness for a great cause and honour a great friend.”
David Walliams says: “Geoffrey and Ambra have done a wonderful job in bringing us all together to create something that will not only make you smile but raises awareness for a great cause. There is nothing better than combining humour and comedy in support of charity, so make sure you donate and download.”
