About Stand Up for Love

"Stand Up for Love" is a song recorded by American girl group Destiny's Child for their first greatest hits album, #1's (2005). Columbia Records released it as the album's first single on September 27, 2005. The song was written by Amy Foster-Gillies and David Foster with the latter also serving as the producer along with Humberto Gatica. Musically, "Stand Up for Love" is a slow-tempo contemporary R&B ballad that draws influences from pop. The song is inspired by poverty-stricken children and families. It was termed the 2005 World Children's Day Anthem and used in conjunction with McDonald's' Ronald McDonald House Charities in order to raise awareness of that day. Upon its release, "Stand Up for Love" received negative reviews from music critics who criticized its composition and inclusion on the compilation album. The song became Destiny's Child's first single to fail to chart in the United States or any other music chart. A music video was directed by Matthew Rolston featuring the band members singing the song, both individually and together. "Stand Up for Love" was performed live by Destiny's Child in November 2005 at the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show and on World Children's Day at Ronald McDonald House in Los Angeles. Several South Korean groups and singers covered the song.

There are times I find it hard to sleep at night
We are living through such troubled times
And every child that reaches out
For someone to hold
For one moment
They become my own

And how can I pretend that I don't know
What's going on?
When every second
And every minute
Another soul is gone

And I believe that in my life
I will see
An end to hopelessness
Or giving up
Or suffering

Then we all stand together this one time
Then no one will get left behind
And stand up for life
Stand up
And here me sing
Stand up
For love

I'm inspired
And hope
For each and everyday
That's how I know that things are going to change
So how can I pretend that I don't know
What's going on?
When every second
And every minute
Another soul is gone

And I believe that in my life
I will see
An end to hopelessness
Or giving up
Or suffering

If we all stand together this one time
Then no one will get left behind
And stand up for life
Stand up
For love

And it all starts right here
And it starts right now
One person stand up man!
And the rest will follow
From the forgotten
And From the Unloved

I'm gonna sing this song,

And I believe
That in my life
I will see
An end to hopelessness
Or giving up
Or suffering

If we all stand together this one time
Then no one will get left behind
And stand up
For life
Stand up
And sing
Stand up
For love
