“Our parents are happy to wake up in the morning. In bomb shelters, but alive. Our loved ones don’t know if we will be together again. [...] Our musicians wear body armor instead of tuxedos. Fill the silence with your music! Fill it today to tell our story. Tell the truth about this war on your social networks, on TV. Support us in any way you can. [...] I have a dream of them living. And free. Free like you on the Grammy stage.”

In an attempt to bring light to the situation and stop the war in Ukraine, Zelensky asked musicians to unite to denounce the injustices that the Russian army has committed in their country.
