Brony Musicians Join Forces to Raise Funds For Ugandan Medical Services
Story updated May 12, 2012 – Official Music Video Released for Project.
Over 150 professional and amateur musicians alike from around the world who are fans of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic television show, have united to help raise funds to build a medical clinic in Uganda. Using their talents and creating music inspired by the wildly popular children’s show, the musicians are putting together an album named Seeds of Kindness which is being sold to raise the much needed money. Their rallying point is a character called Pinkie Pie, who in the show is an eternal optimist and always working tirelessly to bring smiles and friendship to all she meets. The song Smile (Come on Everypony Smile, Smile, Smile) sung by the character, is being recreated by the fans and sung in a We are the world style arrangement, made famous by the late Michael Jackson who along with other world famous musical talents, put together an album in 1985 to raise funds to benefit charities in Africa.
The Smile Song as it’s commonly known, was created by composer Daniel Ingram who was recently nominated for two Emmys for his work on the My Little Pony show, which has embraced Broadway style musical segments in many of its episodes. Seeds of Kindness features 41 tracks created by fans and is on sale now, with all proceeds going to the charity. To-date the impressive fan collaboration has raised well over $5,000 USD and is climbing as they seek to aid Mawanda John Bosco, the founder of Childneed Africa who is working to establish a self-sustaining medical clinic with a full time doctor and other aide workers who will be able to drive to more remote areas of Uganda to provide medical care.
