From Amitabh Bachchan To David Beckham To Katy Perry


Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, English footballer David Beckham, American singer Harry Belafonte, actors Orlando Bloom, Jackie Chan, Mia Farrow, Liam Neeson, Vanessa Redgrave, Susan Sarandon and Argentine footballer Leo Messi are UNICEF’s Goodwill Ambassadors. Now, popstar Katy Perry has been appointed as UNICEF’s newest Goodwill Ambassador.

Popstar Katy Perry said that becoming a goodwill ambassador for the UN children’s agency has made her realize there’s more to happiness than material possessions and social status.

Katy Perry went to the impoverished Indian Ocean Island Nation of Madagascar in April 2013 to see how the agency worked before agreeing to be a goodwill ambassador and was moved by the incredible joy among the children despite the difficulties many faced.

“It changed my life. It really kind of re-prioritized my thinking, and my whole approach on life, and how to find my own joy and my own happiness that isn’t being from material possessions and social status,” Perry said post her trip.

UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake officially appointed her a Goodwill Ambassador to focus especially on children and adolescents who are most vulnerable as a result of severe poverty, violence, abuse and neglect. He also mentioned that UNICEF’s newest Goodwill Ambassador, Perry would be lending her voice to amplify the voices of children and young people around the world.

“I am honored to join UNICEF as a Goodwill Ambassador, and committed to doing everything I can to help children and adolescents who come from such different backgrounds but want the same thing: a brighter future,” said a very excited Perry.

Katy Perry said, it also inspired her to write Unconditionally, her favorite song on her new album Prism.

Grammy nominations are coming up this Friday and there’s been speculation that Katy Perry’s hit Roar could be up for some awards.
