UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon Praises Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ as an Instrument of Peace
He may be busy resolving global conflicts, promoting world peace and doing his part in helping other global crises but you can also count UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon as yet just another fan of Psy and his global hit, Gangnam Style.
The UN leader revealed through a recent interview with AFP, “I have seen [Gangnam Style] several times. “I’m very proud that his performance has been loved and enjoyed by more than 400 million people, It is amazing.”
The UN chief added: “There are no languages required in the musical world. That is the power of music, that is the power of the heart. Through this promotion of arts we can better understand the culture and civilizations of other people. In this era of instability and intolerance we need to promote better understanding through the power of music.”
Psy’s Gangnam Style as an anthem to global peace? We say sure!
