Drummers including Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Soundgarden and Pearl Jam‘s Matt Cameron, and viral sensation Nandi Bushell have joined Ringo Starr for a stacked charity cover of The Beatles‘ “Come Together.”
Dubbed “Drum Together,” the performance supports the organization WhyHunger and its mission to end global hunger.
“We all can agree that no kid should be hungry, and everyone should have access to nutritious food,” Starr says in a statement. “This is a great cause that I’ve supported in the past and a great track — one of my favorite Beatles songs.”
The more than 100 participants also include Korn‘s Ray Luzier, current and former Dream Theater drummers Mike Mangini and Mike Portnoy, and frequent Jack White touring drummer Daru Jones.
Ninety cents from every dollar raised by the Drum Together campaign will go toward WhyHunger programs that focus on community-led initiatives, the goal of which is to provide nutritious food to those who need it across the U.S. and the globe.
You can check out an official video for the song that features composite footage of all of the participants performing individually on the WhyHunger YouTube channel.
A list of all the participating musicians has been posted on WhyHunger.org.
