One Nation Under Love is a social song created by American composer Diane Warren, winner of an Oscar and Grammy, Emmy, and Golden Globe Awards for her contribution to the development of the music industry.
Diane wrote a composition in support of Ukraine in its struggle for freedom and independence and against Russian aggression, and Ukrainian singer Tina Karol performed the song. The single includes two versions of the track — in English and Ukrainian.
“I wrote a song about a country that I sympathize with, that I admire, that is forced to fight for its freedom. About a country that is not an enemy but is intelligent, value-oriented, capable of uniting nations, proving that it is a leading country. I sincerely believe in the victory of Ukraine. Glory to Ukraine!” says Diane Warren.
For the first time, One Nation Under Love was presented live on the 1+1 channel dedicated to the Independence Day of Ukraine, August 24, 2023, in a space bridge format. Tina Karol performed the composition near the Mother Ukraine monument, while Diane Warren accompanied against the background of the American Statue of Liberty.
Ukrainian production company WePlay Studios became a partner of the project, producing and filming the artists’ performances. The WePlay team filmed in parallel in Kyiv and Los Angeles, using remote production technology. The project was implemented in record time — two weeks. In total, filming took 36 hours, and official music video editing only two days.
“Creating a social song, as a support and a shield, is my heartfelt vocation. The only thing I want to say about our path to the premiere of One Nation Under Love is to dream boldly and go for it! Ukrainians are the most motivated nation! Endless thank-yous to WePlay Studios, Maksym Bilonogov, and everyone who participated in video creation without sleep or rest for a great goal and result! Crazy suits you!” comments Tina Karol.
“As a company with Ukrainian roots, we are happy to use the experience gained all over the world to create the best products in the media industry and remind through them that a war still rages on in Ukraine. It was a great honor for us to become a part of this social manifesto, which serves as a cultural bridge between the Ukrainian and American nations and is a thank you to all partners, countries, and people who contribute to our victory,” shares Yura Lazebnikov, chief executive officer of WePlay Studios.
Also, we would like to express our appreciation to everyone who put their efforts into the work on the video, as well as to Artem Koliubaiev, film producer and head of the Council for State Support of Cinematography, Yuriy Savchuk, director general of the Museum of History of Ukraine in the Second World War, and Rostislav Karandeev, acting Culture Minister.
