Bono has expanded his song, “Let Your Love Be Known,” into a full-blown collaboration with Will.i.am, Jennifer Hudson, and Yoshiki.
Last week, Bono had uploaded the new piano ballad for the people of Italy who are currently quarantined due to the Coronavirus. Rolling Stone says the tune is now called, “Sing For Life,” with the accompanying video featuring the artists all singing to one another in their respective isolation.
For the Italians who inspired it… for the Irish… for ANYONE who this St. Patrick’s day is in a tight spot and still singing. For the doctors, nurses, carers on the front line, it's you we’re singing to.Bono

Will.i.am posted on his YouTube account: “This song was created to bring joy. In times like these, creative people must continue to collaborate…whether you are a computer scientist, an engineer, a therapist or a teacher, just because we are self-isolating or in quarantine doesn’t mean you are alone. The beauty of international connectivity is that nobody is alone on the (sic) internet! Use this time to be creative and collaborate remotely to solve problems. A healthy body also means a healthy mind.”
