–Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato premiered their new duet, “Make A Wave,” last night at a special “Celebrate Family Volunteers” event at Walt Disney World® Resort in Lake Buena Vista, FL. They also sang their “Camp Rock” duet, “This Is Me.”
The song was recorded for Disney’s Friends for Change: Project Green and will be featured in the upcoming Disneynature film Oceans. The anthem will debut February 26 on Radio Disney, while the music video will have its world premiere on Disney Channel March 14 and launch online the following day at Disney.com. “Make A Wave” will be available beginning March 15 on iTunes, with all proceeds benefiting environmental charities through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund (DWCF). Oceans hits theaters April 22, 2010 (Earth Day).
With the motivating lyrics just a pebble in the water can set the sea in motion, a simple act of kindness can stir the deepest ocean, the anthem carries the main message of Friends for Change: when people work together, small steps can add up to a world of difference. With its water theme, the song also helps to underscore the importance of protecting the worlds water habitats, which make up nearly three- quarters of our planet.
Make A Wave is the follow-up to last years hit Friends for Change anthem “Send It On” by Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato. To date, “Send It On” has helped raise more than $500,000 for conservation projects across the globe. A large portion of those funds is helping revitalize forests in the U.S., Latin America and Europe in collaboration with Arbor Day Foundation. Proceeds are also being directed to the Disney Worldwide Conservation Funds Rapid Response Fund which focuses on aiding animals affected by disasters. As a recent example, $20,000 was directed to the International Fund for Animal Welfare, a leading member of the Animal Relief Coalition for Haiti, working to provide care for animals following the devastating earthquakes.
