Led by Cody Simpson who’s been using #HappySoundsLike, Simpson has been asking fans to tweet songs that make them the happiest while using the same hashtag. Ed Sheeran, James Blunt, David Guetta and John Legend are all contributing to partake in the positive campaign.

In addition, Simposn also asked his fans to choose five submissions to be included in the official playlist. He said:

I am really pleased to be part of such an amazing campaign to raise awareness of International Day of Happiness. I hope everyone gets behind the day and shares the track that makes them happiest.

Ban Ki-moon, UN secretary general, said:

On this day we are using the universal language of music to show solidarity with the millions of people around the world suffering from poverty, human rights abuses, humanitarian crises and the effects of environmental degradation and climate change.

Ban also nominated Stevie Wonder, already a UN messenger of peace, advocating people with disabilities around the world.

Outside of this special day, UN will also initiate other campaigns to promote the pursuit of happiness. Find out more about what happy sounds like, check it out here.
