Sting has updated his free iPad app, Sting 25, with new content including three previously unseen performances from his 60th Birthday Benefit Concert (Brand New Day with Stevie Wonder, If You Love Somebody Set Them Free with Branford Marsalis, and Roxanne featuring Bryn Terfel) along with a global PSA produced by Radical Media for the One World Futbol Project (OWFP).
The app was recently given the prestigious Cannes Lion for Best Visual Design/Aesthetic at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. Included is an exploration of Sting's enduring solo career through a multitude of elements, including handwritten lyrics and journal entries, rare photos, in-depth interviews, and a variety of concert footage, including exclusive performances and behind-the-scenes footage from his 60th Birthday Celebration benefitting the Robin Hood Foundation at New York City's Beacon Theatre.
The in-depth 'appumentary' also features a newly released PSA with Sting and OWFP co-founder Tim Jahnigen, created to support the organization's mission to distribute virtually indestructible soccer balls that never need a pump and never go flat to youth in war-stricken zones, refugee camps, disaster areas and other disadvantaged communities around the world. The name of the OWFP, an award-winning B-corporation and creators of the One World Futbol, was inspired by Sting's song, "One World (Not Three).
Since its inception, the One World Futbol Project has positively affected more than 525,000 lives in 137 countries through more than 138 organizations ' including schools, orphanages, and nonprofits ' which use sport to resolve conflicts, teach tolerance, and build communities. The company is also an affiliate member of streetfootballnetwork, which connects 94 football-for-social change non-profits in 61 countries.
The STING 25 app is available as a free download from the App Store on iPad or at www.itunes.com/appstore.
