He was the lead singer and heart-throb of Scottish band, Rewind and became an overnight web sensation with his Sam Smith cover, now UK singer/songwriter, Jack Robertson has been chosen as the global voice of the United Nation’s International Youth Day 2017 with his new single, "Enough", which will be released on August 11th.
Conveying an inspirational message of "we’ve had enough" to support this year’s theme of Youth Building Peace, Jack represents the voice of the world’s youth who simply want a world of peace for their generation. Bringing his message to life for the planet, Jack Robertson will be delivering a live global webcast on International Youth Day, a free, global digital gig for everyone to share the message of peace.
"Enough" is a love song to the world. Depicting bridges burned, inflicted pain and promises broken, it’s a metaphor of love on a war-torn world; a desperate plea that enough is enough and it’s time to let go of what’s killing us. A delicious slice of catchy pop whipping and weaving its way around the fabric of Jack’s rich and compelling vocals,"Enough" was written to grab instant attention, with an underlying message to the world for those who have ears to listen.
