The United Nations chooses the Pharrell Williams track, “Happy,” to promote joy all around the world

*No doubt, Pharrell Williams has struck gold. His ingenious, yet simple track, “Happy” composed for the 2013 film, “Despicable Me 2” proves that music aimed to please kid audiences does not stop there.

Everyone in the world wants to be “Happy!” And now, the United Nations, an organization that promotes peace and international cooperation,  has adopted his Oscar-nominated tune to use as the anthem for the International Day of Happiness.

According to the organizations website, the song will help encourage “people to take action to support the UN and to create a happier world for people everywhere.”

And guess what, Pharrell wants you in on the action too!
