We love seeing stars come together for a good cause. To celebrate the launch of BBC Music, many of the biggest names in music have united for a stunning music video. Pharrell, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Emeli Sandé, Sam Smith, Lorde, and more have remade the 1966 Beach Boys classic “God Only Knows.”
The theatrical visual, filmed at the Alexandra Palace theatre in London, also feature appearances from Coldplay’s Chris Martin, One Direction, Kylie Minogue, Queen’s Brian May, Florence Welch, and Brian Wilson himself. They are also joined by the Tees Valley Youth Choir and the BBC Concert Orchestra.
“All of the artists did such a beautiful job I can’t thank them enough,” said the Beach Boys frontman. “I’m just honored that ‘God Only Knows’ was chosen. ‘God Only Knows’ is a very special song. An extremely spiritual song and one of the best I’ve ever written.”
Proceeds from sales of the song will benefit BBC’s Children in Need foundation.
