Reggae ambassadors Third World are celebrating 47 years of musical journey with live stream celebrations and the animated lyrics video premiere of “People of A Different Color” featuring Virgin Island reggae recording artist, Pressure BussPipe.

On yet another timeless recording, destined to become a classic, members Stephen “Cat” Coore, Richie “Bassie” Daley, AJ Brown, Tony “Ruption” Williams and Norris “Noriega” Webb call for racial harmony, “with honest and poignant lyrics that are more significant than ever amid worldwide crises that have plagued 2020,” according to Destine Media.

Set against a colorful and vibrant backdrop, it said on Wednesday that the multi-GRAMMY nominated band enlists fans to sing-along with the lyrical video that offers “gorgeous, storybook-type scenery, depicting different cultures, races, creeds and religious beliefs around the world.”

The lyrics go: “People of a Different color praying to a different name, let’s find a way to get along with each other.”

Pressure BussPipe said he was “blessed to be a part of this project with Third World.”

He said “’People of a Different Color’ shines a light on what we can be as a people if we put our differences aside no matter religion, ethnicity or nationality.”

Pressure BussPipe said “People of a Different Color” provides “music that should help to heal the world from now and years to come.”

“People of a Different Color” is the fourth track from the critically acclaimed GRAMMY nominated ‘More Work to be Done’ album produced by multi-Grammy-award winning artist and producer Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley.
