After winning a worldwide songwriting competition, Yaakov’s “More Light” became the worldwide anthem used for Dance For Kindness, a global flashmob spanning over 100 cities in 50 countries, where tens of thousands danced to promote kindness and unity.
On November 8, 2015, the world united under the banner of a single song, with a single choreography, promoting a single message. The event was called “Dance for Kindness” a worldwide flashmob organized by Life Vest Inside, an organization that seeks to make the world a more positive place by increasing kindness and unity. After having won the “Worldwide Anthem Contest” by popular vote, Yaakov Feldstein‘s “More Light” spread like wildfire across the globe. The competition victory deemed “More Light” the official song for the worldwide flashmob, and was to be choreographed and produced with a new version for the flashmob.
November 8th was a glorious day, with tens of thousands of people in over 100 cities in 50 countries dancing the same dance to the same song, “More Light“, all in the name of kindness, peace, and world unity. The flagship location of Dance For Kindness was Times Square, where Yaakov performed the song during the flashmob in front of a whopping public crowd of thousands. But it was knowing that on the very same day people around the globe were coming together and doing the same that was the driving force in this whole event. It wasn’t about the hundreds that danced the choreography in your location, but rather the thousands the world over that connected with the same cause through the music.
Yaakov has undoubtedly made a positive impact on the world with this original composition, by speaking to the hearts of tens of thousands of people of all different races, religions, and languages, uniting them with the single universal, positive message. On top of that, the fact that a young, religious Jew stood up to the world with his yarmulka on his head and instilled positivity with his music, was a tremendous Kiddush Hashem. It can be definitively said that Yaakov and Dance for Kindness have brought “More Light” into the world.
The song is available on Mostly Music, iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, CD Baby, and all other online music stores.
