What’s Going On 50th Anniversary Celebration
“Save The Children”
Music Video Created Using Winning Submissions
from a Fiverr Design Contest
Arriving May 20, the Video features Acclaimed Producer SaLaAM
Remi's Recently Released “Save The Children” Remix
MAY 20, 2022 (Los Angeles, CA) -- For the grand finale of the year-long celebration for Marvin Gaye’s landmark What’s Going On album, Motown and UMe turned to his fans to help create a unique video of Grammy®-nominated producer SaLaAM ReMi’s remix of the album track “Save The Children.”
In April, Universal Music Enterprises and Fiverr, an online marketplace for professional freelance services, held the Fiverr x Marvin Gaye: “Save the Children” Design Challenge, which asked Fiverr artists to listen to SaLaAM ReMi's “Save the Children” remix and then illustrate a 2D child character inspired by their interpretation of the song. The submissions revealed a remarkable range of animated creativity that included traditional cartoons, graffiti, anime, doodles, abstract sketches, and more.
The winning entries have been imaginatively integrated into the vibrant “Save The Children” video, with all the contributing artists being mentioned on a credits screen. The video, now live on the Marvin Gaye YouTube Channel, follows on the heels of the recent 2022 Webby Awards victory of the “What’s Going On” animated video in the Diversity & Inclusion Video Category.
