Tony Mono – Sochi

German pop artist and comedian Tony Mono, who regularly appears on the Cologne-based 1 Live radio network, has created a take on Pharrell Williams’ Oscar-nominated Happy, the theme song to Despicable Me 2. From the clip description:

Let’s show Russia, how we love our love. Free from oppression and fear! International superstar producer Tony Mono reaches out to fans across the world to tell them what is happening in Russia is not right. When people are forbidden from expressing their love, something is definitely going wrong. Let your voices be heard against hate and let love be free. Love for whoever you want. Fighting for this unalienable right is not just an issue for gay people but for us all.

I love the original and this is just as good.
