STAR OF THE WEEK is a project in which throughout the week the attention is focused on 1 singer, duo or group.
The New Seekers is this week’s STAR OF THE WEEK and today’s song is:
I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing, a song that originated as the jingle True Love and Apple Pie, by British hit songwriters Roger Cook and Roger Greenaway. The lyrics were rewritten for The Coca-Cola Company to become Buy the World a Coke. The popularity of the jingle led to it being re-recorded in two versions: one by The New Seekers and another by The Hillside Singers, as a full-length song, dropping references to Coca-Cola. The song became a hit record in the US and the UK.
