Cher recently opened up about the pandemic in an exclusive interview with Billboard, announcing her commitment to donate all profits from the song to UNICEF, similar to what ABBA has done since the 1979 Music for UNICEF concert. The singer said: “I’ve long admired UNICEF, especially for their work with young women since I was a little girl. Now, more than ever, it’s critical that we prioritize every child around the world as if they were our own.”
