The people behind this song appear to be in hiding despite the courage it took for the girl it is about, to literally put herself in the line of fire for women’s freedom and education rights. They are apparently musicians from the USA, Canada, Nigeria and elsewhere, but as of writing not identifiable despite the power of Google.
Hopefully this video is a legitimate tribute and not done simply because “Malala” as a phrase rolls off the tongue for singing quite nicely. Regardless, the story of this girl needs to be reviewed by this blog.
Malala Yousafzai is the Pakistani teenage girl now being fêted with numerous peace awards, and who is a Nobel Peace prize nominee for 2013. In 2012, she was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen, returning home from school for which as a girl she was not supposed to attend. Thankfully she barely survived, and now is even more passionate about bringing attention and change to her worthy cause.
If there are other prestigious or more well-known/high profile songs for Malala, please share them with a comment below.
