HERB ALPERT REMINDS US OF LOUIS ARMSTRONG’S ENDURING OPTIMISM IN TROUBLED TIMES WITH NEW “WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD” VIDEO
Herb Alpert has unveiled an imaginative visual component to his recent cover of good friend and American legend Louis Armstrong’s “What A Wonderful World.”
Herb’s unique spin on the track incorporates instruments from around the world – Trinidad to Turkey and Japan to Bolivia – as well as an angelic children’s choir. Children are particularly important to Alpert, who will donate 100% of proceeds to the Louis Armstrong Educational Foundation.
The accompanying video intersperses clips from the recording process with everyday reminders of the beauty in the world and appeals for kindness, honesty and compassion. On his 2018 tour dates, Alpert has been opening his shows with the “What A Wonderful World” video to rave reviews.
