Dave Matthews Featured In New Musical-Themed Nature Program On Discovery Channel

first_imgA new Discovery Channel show is mixing the nature and music worlds, as the six-part series will use specific music from six prominent recording artists to tell various stories of the wild. All six musicians have a keen love for nature, and the themed episodes will be an engaging way to tell these animal stories.The six musicians featured include Usher, Christina Aguliera, Joan Jett, Ellie Goulding, Steven Tyler and Dave Matthews. Rich Ross, group president of Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and Science Channel, told The Hollywood Reporter, “All of these artists bring a powerful love for wildlife and the environment, and we cannot wait to share these films with families across the world… As we’re faced daily with news and information about the declining state of our natural world, this series brings a hopeful message that bridges generations to inspire conservationists of any age.”Matthews’ episode in particular will be focused on the song “Save Me,” and will feature three animals – rhinos, spadefoot toads and manatees – searching for fresh water that they depend on for life. Other episodes include Joan Jett’s “Bad Reputation” with animals who get bad raps, Goulding’s “Something In The Way You Move” with animals on the quest to find mates, and Usher’s “Stronger” with the resiliency of a sea turtle and red fox.The show is titled Hello World!, and is set to premiere on Discovery on July 9th. Presented in association with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), this should be a great series that nature lovers of all ages can enjoy.Just imagine “Save Me” as the soundtrack to a nature show!
