Be the Light – Ali Youssefi feat. Karim Rushdy [Official Video]

“Be the Light” is a musical collaboration created by Ali Youssefi that reflects on the importance of growing our own inner light, our virtues, shedding that light into the world, and helping others do the same.

Featuring 255 friends from 44 countries and territories around the world and many musicians, such as rapper Karim Rushdy, this song was also created in partnership with two inspiring organizations focused on fostering virtues education: The Virtues Project and Virtues Matter.
