Drake Signs Open Letter Calling For A Ceasefire In Gaza

By External Source

Drake has joined a growing list of high-profile musicians, directors and actors calling for a ceasefire in Gaza.


The Canadian star added his name to an open letter on artists4ceasefire.org, a website with an open letter to United States President Joe Biden urging "your administration, and all world leaders, to honour all of the lives in the Holy Land and call for and facilitate a ceasefire without delay – an end to the bombing of Gaza, and the safe release of hostages.”

"We come together as artists and advocates, but most importantly as human beings witnessing the devastating loss of lives and unfolding horrors in Israel and Palestine," the letter says. "More than 5,000 people have been killed in the last week and a half – a number any person of conscience knows is catastrophic. We believe all life is sacred, no matter faith or ethnicity and we condemn the killing of Palestinian and Israeli civilians...As of this writing more than 6,000 bombs have been dropped on Gaza in the last 12 days - resulting in one child being killed every 15 minutes."

The letter includes a number of other major musicians including Dua Lipa, Michael Stipe, Killer Mike, and Kaytranada. To continue reading Richard Trapunski’s story, link to Billboard Canada.
