The song “Change Our Game” was written following the terrorist attacks in Brussels, 22 March 2016. The song is about ourselves (human beings), who want in essence the same thing: “A peaceful and prosperous life together.” This is what we wish each other every time at the beginning of a New Year.
Public campaign #ChangeOurGame
Rotary Club Brussels Cantersteen and the platform PlayandPeace start a unique collaboration with RWDM Girls with the public campaign #ChangeOurGame. During the upcoming football season, the three partners commit to support the sale of the song ChangeOurGame and raise money for the following causes:
- A benefit concert for the victims of the terrorist attacks in Belgium
- A third Cruyff Court in Belgium (after Mechelen and Molenbeek) or #schoolyard14 in Molenbeek
- Focus on women’s football in Belgium and in particular support for the RWDM Girls
The positive and hopeful song ChangeOurGame that was written after the attacks in Brussels and Zaventem can be purchased here for 2.5 euros.
In the music video #ChangeOurGame, the colours of the city of Brussels (yellow and blue) are coming to life. If these colours come together then the city will be united. This is represented by Soufiane – (yellow jacket) and Nouhad Lahlali (blue jacket). They are the children of Abdallah Lahlali and Lou Loubna. Abdallah Lahlali was severely wounded at Zaventem airport. The love and support given to the family Lahlali from their surroundings is a force that helps them to move forward. However this remains a difficult task.
