Originating in the UK in 2010, the Music Matters campaign is a collective of people across the music community, including artists, songwriters, labels, managers, publishers and music stores, formed to remind listeners of the value and significance of music. Music Matters has allowed the music to speak for itself through a series of short animated films about inspirational artists who have dedicated their lives to music and contributed to our cultural landscape.
In 2011, the Beatles added their voice to the campaign, joining Kate Bush, Elbow, JLS, Paloma Faith, Sigur Ros and many others in telling us why they love music and what it means to them.
This short animation by Lee Gingold and friends shows how The Beatles have inspired thousands of artists. More than 50 years later, their music still has the power to unite millions of fans all over the world.
The Beatles bring us together and show why Music Matters.
