Pharrell Williams' "Your Voice is Power" Campaign

Pharrell Williams' "Your Voice is Power" Campaign
Posted on 01/21/2021
Amazon, Pharrell Williams, and Georgia Tech have announced an initiative that will encourage middle and high school students to learn to code while working on new music remixes. ... The“Your Voice is Power” collaboration will allow students to “explore how computer science, music, and entrepreneurship can advance equity.”

Pharrell says that teaching kids future-ready skills like coding, especially those kids for whom opportunities like this have not been equally distributed, is how we prepare the next generation of entrepreneurs. That’s why YELLOW has launched “Your Voice is Power.”

Middle and high school students and teachers in the US and Canada are encouraged to examine racial equity while remixing my song “Entrepreneur” using computer code.  Right here in Suffolk, VA, students from Nansemond River High were surprised to see Pharrell Williams drop into their virtual
instruction course. They were featured in a promotional video for the national Ear Sketch/Your Voice is Power campaign!
