One Republic`s new song "Feel Again" is a part of the social campaign "Every Beat Matters." It`s a campaign partnered with Save The Children... to do just that. In the song Feel Again, the band recorded *actual* heartbeats of children from Africa and Guatemala using an iPhone App. This is a clip of one of campaigns youtube videos. The band says, when you listen to the song, it`s like the children are with you in the room.
When listeners buy the song off iTunes, 100 percent of the money goes towards the every beat matters campaign. Their goal is help impoverished children survive and for them to have available medical care. This campaign is completely social. So visit their website, facebook page, and tweet to them using hash tag every beat matters.
