Angélique Kidjo performed at a UNICEF event in Copenhagen yesterday to launch the United Nations Climate Summit.

The singer was joined by singer Anggun at the event, which saw eight UNICEF Climate Ambassadors – aged 14 to 17 – generate a dialogue on how music bridges the divides of culture and age in the fight against climate change.

“Music is a universal language, and the environment is a universal place for every human being,” said Kidjo. "I’ve travelled around the world with my music and I’ve seen the power of music bringing everybody together despite language, color – despite the culture where we come from.

“You go around and you look in your country at things that have changed and … disappeared because of climate change. We are going to touch people by showing them this. By example, we are going to change their minds.”
