Earlier this year, FIFA and Sony Music Entertainment announced that “We Are One (Ole Ola),” by global superstar Pitbull, featuring global superstar Jennifer Lopez and Brazilian artist Claudia Leitte, was selected as the Official Song of the upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup™ in Brazil. The song will be performed by Pitbull, together with Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte, at the FIFA World Cup™ Opening Ceremony on June 12 at the Arena de Sao Paulo.
Once the track idea was created, Santana, Pires and Avicii each added their own sound to the recording.
Carlos Santana says of the project “It is an honor to take part in the 2014 FIFA World Cup and have “Dar um Jeito (We Will Find A Way)” selected as the Anthem. Along with my brothers, Wyclef, Avicii and Alexandre Pires, we look forward to performing the song in Rio de Janeiro in July and sharing this message of light and hope on the FIFA World Cup stage.”
Adds Wyclef Jean, “Despite the fact that I was born in a place where darkness at times steals the sunshine, where rain often turns to floods and children often cannot be found, I have always found a way to sing with joy…. “Dar um Jeito” is dedicated to all those searching for the light….knowing that they too, shall soon find a way.”
