“Mad World” by the boy’s choir Wuppertaler Kurrende – Amazing Powerful

Saw this video and I had to share.  Incredible way to make an impact for a worthwhile cause.  The performance was for The International Children’s Fund in honor of November 10, 2012 Universal Children’s Day.

“Every three seconds the world loses a child. Again, this year many children will not see their fifth birthday. The reasons for this tragedy are diverse; hunger, malnutrition, dirty water or the absence of vaccine protection. Every single one of these problems can weaken the immune system so much that avoidable diseases lead to life-threatening danger.

International Children’s Fund helps those children in need, especially in Africa.

With your donation (https://www.icfaid.com/pages/DonateNow) we can continue our work and help stop the world from needlessly losing many children every year. Thank you for your support.

And we want to give special thanks to the boy’s choir Wuppertaler Kurrende (http://www.wuppertaler-kurrende.com) for supporting the idea.”

Tears for Fears Mad World lyrics:

“All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for the daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere

Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I wanna drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
When people run in circles its a very, very
Mad world, mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy birthday, happy birthday
And I feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen

Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me, what’s my lesson?
Look right through me, look right through me

And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
When people run in circles its a very, very
Mad world, mad world, enlarging your world
Mad world”
