Late last week, U2 premiered “Your Song Saved My Life,” a new song featured in the upcoming animated film Sing 2 (which features Bono in his first voice acting role). An uplifting song about the unifying power of music, it’s a particularly lofty tune, even by U2 standards:

The song now has a proper music video, and it’s a collaboration between the Irish icons, Universal Pictures, Republic Records and Education Through Music (ETM), a nonprofit organization “which provides music as a core subject for all children in under-resourced schools across North America,” per a news release.

The engaging video was directed by Aya Tanimura and stars students and teachers from the ETM program. Voiceovers and subtitles tell their stories of finding support, strength and joy in music and underlines the importance of the organization’s mission to provide thousands of children in under-resourced schools across America with access to a high-quality music education.

Sing 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on Dec. 22. Here’s the film’s trailer:

The film’s official synopsis:

This holiday season, the new chapter in Illumination’s smash animated franchise arrives with big dreams and spectacular hit songs as the ever-optimistic koala, Buster Moon, and his all-star cast of performers prepare to launch their most dazzling stage extravaganza yet …all in the glittering entertainment capital of the world. There’s just one hitch: They first have to persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star—played by global music icon Bono, in his animated film debut—to join them.
