NEW YORK (AP) — Pharrell Williams is joining up with the United Nations for a day of happiness.
The singer is working with the world organization to mark the annual International Day of Happiness on Thursday. The event will be marked by a 24-hour event on YouTube and Williams is urging people to take action and raise money for humanitarian efforts.
Pharrell, of course, had a hit with the song “Happy” from “Despicable Me 2″ — which went number one and ended up being nominated for an Oscar for best original song.
He is asking people to send in YouTube videos of themselves demonstrating their happiness to the tune of his song. For more information, visit 24hoursofhappiness.com.
