27 Million song:

27 Million – that’s the number of slaves in the world today – more than any other time in human history.

Here are some of the facts about modern day slavery:

  • Human trafficking is an organised criminal activity that affects every nation.
  • There are an estimated 27 million people on the earth today trapped in some form of modern day slavery.
  • There are an estimated 1.39 million victims of commercial sexual servitude worldwide.
  • Tragically, only 1-2% of victims are rescued.
  • Remember every number is not just a statistic it represents the life of a victim.

You can find out more about modern day slavery at The A21 Campaign and more about the single at Matt Redman’s and LZ7′s sites.

The single is available to download from iTunes (USA), (UK), (Australia) and Amazon.

British hip hop band LZ7 have joined forces with worship leader Matt Redman to write the song ’27 Million’ for the A21 Campaign, which is committed to combating the injustice of human trafficking. At first glance it may sound like an unlikely combination, but as these artists prepare to release the single worldwide..

What’s the story behind the song ‘Twenty Seven Million’ and how did the track come about?

Beth Redman: » I‘ve been part of the A21 Campaign for a while. The more I found out about this horrific issue of human trafficking, and just how prevalent it is on the earth today, I just couldn’t stand back and do nothing. I decided you have to work with what is in your hands, and for us that includes music. So I had the idea that we’d write a song with Lindz and Lucy from LZ7, and the whole thing came together really quickly »

LZ7 have joined up with Matt & Beth Redman for a new song – how did that come about?

LZ7: « Matt and Beth Redman approached me for a track to use in school lessons on an urban vibe about trafficking. None of us realised the potential of the track and what a buzz it would form. »

Some people might be surprised to find Matt Redman and LZ7 singing on the same track – why have you guys collaborated on this song?

Matt: « Ha! It’s a fantastic fusion of genres, and it works because there’s one heart running through this project – it’s a heart to speak up for those who don’t have a voice. We also have all known each other for years, and there’s tons of mutual respect for each other, and what we all do in life. That counts for a lot in a vulnerable situation like a songwriting session! »

Apart from downloading the single, what else can people do to get behind the single and support the campaign in general?

Beth: Please check out the A21 Campaign’s website. There’s so much info on there – facts about trafficking, the work of A21, and what people can do to be more involved.
