“Let Your Love Be Known” is a brand new song by Bono, which has been transformed from a rough video recording of him singing and playing the piano taped on St. Patrick’s Day to a full-fledged production courtesy of Fernando Perdomo who produced the song at Reseda Ranch Studios in Winnetka/Reseda, CA and plays most of the instruments as well while dozens of quarantined singers and musicians from multiple cities and countries added their instruments and voices (a choir of 73 self-quarantined singers) to Bono's voice and piano. 

Among those contributing backing vocals are Peter Noone, Adam Gaynor from Matchbox 20, all the members of the "Echo In The Canyon" band featured in the acclaimed documentary about the music of Laurel Canyon, Durga McBroom who sang with Pink Floyd, actress Rebecca Pidgeon, Grammy Award winning singer Jorge Moreno and countless others.

Fernando Perdomo with the back story: "On St. Patrick's Day 2020, Bono posted a video on Instagram of him singing a new song he wrote inspired by the COVID-19 Pandemic called "Let Your Love Be Known." He was inspired by community's of quarantined Italians joining together to sing on their balcony's and rooftops together in a unified showing of strength and bravery. I was moved by the song and inspired to put full instrumentation behind Bono's heartfelt vocal and piano. I then called some of my closest friends and collaborators to sing on the track. One of the lines in the song is "Sing Down The Phone". Ironically most of these vocal performances were captured on voice memos on cell phones because of Self quarantine all over the world. The track features performers from all over the United States,Canada, and even Japan. One of the singers (Steven Wilson) is a hospital worker in LA and sang his vocal during a break from helping patients. This is a poignant take on the isolation many around the world are feeling and it is in tribute to hospital workers and anyone affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Bono, your song is glorious and has inspired so many people. We sought out to extend your message and Sing from the rooftops all over the world."
