Look to the Stars reports that Yusuf (formerly Cat Stevens) has recorded a message for the new (RED)Wire digital music magazine to send a message dedicated to “the youth of the world” and helping them in 2009.
You can sign up for a free trial of (RED)Wire now, which includes Yusuf’s message. The download process takes a bit of time, and for some reason it was in Dutch or something, but it all came through OK. The video message is part of the digital magazine’s second issue (vol. 1, no. 2) and was shot by Jesse Dylan during the making of the music video for “Boots & Sand” in the desserts of California. Yusuf gives a brief message about the purity of children and then performs a solo acoustic version of “Oh Very Young”.
