Using their talent to bring awareness to global issues (climate change and environmental), Chris Webby and Bria Lee reinterpreted Woody Guthrie’s 1940 Folk song ‘This Land Is Your Land’. Sung with its original melody, after the Connecticut-based artist raps about the problems he’s working to eradicate, the hook explains why you should care.

At the end of the video, the artists bring it home with dialogue on how we can help to make a difference. It isn’t the first time Webby has put our planet first. He has a strong stance on conservation and sustainability, the same. As far as this record, he pledges to donate $20,000 of his to inspire others to join him in supporting the cause. All proceeds from streaming and pure sales will go to two charities: The Rainforest Trust and Big Life Africa.
