Islam Urges Leaders To Take Notice Of What Children Want

Muslim convert YUSUF ISLAM has urged world leaders to pay more attention to children when making decisions in 2009 in a Christmas and New Year message posted on BONO's (RED) WIRE online magazine.
The singer/songwriter, formerly known as Cat Stevens, took time out of shooting a new video in the California desert to film his short video message, which he dedicates "to the youth of the world".
He says, "This world needs children to kind of remind us of which way we want this world to go."
Yusuf Islam then performs a sunset rendition his own tune Oh Very Young.
