A.R. RAHMAN, KEN KRAGEN GATHERING STARS FOR ‘WE ARE THE WORLD’-STYLE CLIMATE CHANGE SINGLE

Three and a half decades after being one of the driving forces behind “We Are the World” and “Hands Across America,” manager Ken Kragen is shifting the focus of his charitable efforts from hunger to the big heat. He’s looking to marshal the same kind of all-star forces and populist appeal that came together in the mid-’80s for a new song, “Hands Around the World,” that’s designed to raise funds and awareness to combat climate change.

The creative driver on this new single-in-progress is A.R. Rahman, the composer and songwriter whose career ranges from two Oscars for “Slumdog Millionaire” to a recent single and live collaboration with U2 in his native India. Broadway composer Stephen Schwartz wrote some of the lyrics for the new song, which also has a team of international co-writers in Poland’s Julia Zuzanna Sokolowska, K-pop hit songwriter Daniel Caesar and Kevin Doucette, who worked on the theme for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

SONGS THAT DEFINED THE DECADE:
GIRLS' GENERATION'S 'I GOT A BOY'

"It was the first of its kind."

Regularly, listeners erroneously describe K-pop as a “genre” of music. But unlike Europop, the geographic notation of “K-pop” doesn’t immediately bring a single sonic style to mind. *Though many, many songs coming out of the South Korean pop scene have played with tonal shifts and BPM switcheroos, few have done so with such aplomb as Girls’ Generation’s 2013 hit “I Got a Boy” -- which is often compared to Queen’s tone-hopping epic “Bohemian Rhapsody” due to its pristinely chaotic approach to jumping between musical elements.

BILLBOARD MAGAZINE LISTS THE TOP 100 KPOP SONGS OF THE DECADE.

Billboard magazine is celebrating the 2010's with essays on the 100 KPOP songs that they feel most define the decade. The Kennel has 4 songs within Top50!
No 2. Red Velvet, “Red Flavor” (Caesar & Loui)
No 5. Girls' Generation, “I Got a Boy” (Sarah Lundbäck)
