In 1984 Bob Geldof and Midge Ure, two of the biggest names in the music world founded Band Aid to change the world and to raise money for anti-famine efforts in Ethiopia. When Bob and Midge Ure launched Band Aid people thought music could not change the world. However, it did.
With the release of ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’, over the years with the amount of money raised, Band Aid has and continues to change lives. Another artist who wants to change the world is an up-and-coming rapper called Alright.
‘Alright’, who has been described as one of the most exciting rappers of his generation wants to use his music to change the world. He is more than a musician and songwriter, he is a man with a vision, a vision that everyone in the world should have, and that vision is world peace.
With all the unrest in the world ‘Alright’ believes that world peace can be achieved. He believes that music can be a powerful tool to help heal the world. With his powerful music, and gaining fans all around the world, ‘Alright’ could do the same for world peace as Bob Geldof did for famine.

Can I ask what was the first record you bought?
My first record was a crate of Drum n bass records.

I have been into Hip-hop since my youth so moving from Djing to rapping was a natural transition
How did you come up with your artist name?
My artist name is something thats kind of evolved. Because of my bible based lyrics it was The Alrighty one, then was shortened to Alright, and now it is Alright King as I believe we have all been given a crown under Christ.

You have previously said that certain interpretations of biblical prophecy, Armageddon (Megiddo) is seen as a symbolic place of final conflict or great turmoil. Some religious traditions anticipate that this event will be followed by the return of Jesus Christ and the establishment of a new era of peace and harmony. Do you truly believe that?
We should all work towards a world of peace and harmony. When will be the return of my King is unknown
Music has played an important part in important matters to raising money for Aids charities, starving children, and making people aware of the damage being done to the planet, do you believe that music can help in promoting and achieving world peace?
