Jermaine Dupri and Mariah Carey releasing new song for charity

Jermaine Dupri announced today that he and Mariah Carey will lead an effort to produce a musical collaboration encouraging people to step forward and commit to action to strengthen and improve our nation and the world.

The inspiration for the song comes from Points of Light Institute, the largest enabler of voluntary action in the nation, an organization that inspires, equips and mobilizes people to take action that changes the world.

According to Dupri, music is a powerful vehicle to bring about togetherness and understanding, with an ability to reach people in ways that words alone cannot.  

“There’s a lot happening in the world right now. We hope to create something special with other great musicians that moves people and can make them understand they CAN do something positive to make their lives and the world better.”

The name of the song and the names of additional collaborators have yet to be released.

Dupri and Carey previously collaborated on her tracks “We Belong Together” and “Always Be My Baby.”
