U.S. Royalty & Kindlewood videos for ONE Campaign

The ONE Campaign, headquartered here in DC, is an international non-profit dedicated to fighting extreme poverty and preventable disease in Africa and elsewhere. Agit8, its latest effort to raise awareness for social issues, involves filming popular bands performing covers of well- and lesser-known protest songs. Joining the ranks of Elvis Costello, U2 and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are rising stars U.S. Royalty & Kindlewood.

U.S. Royalty covered Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On by the Lincoln Memorial, with an iPod sitting in for drums.

The folk-rockers in Kindlewood chose McPherson Square as the setting for their cover of “Intervention” by Arcade Fire.
