Music greats ABBA have announced that they will be donating royalties earned for their new Christmas single, “Little Things”, to the United Unions Children’s Fund.
Unicef says its Global Child Protection Fund will use the donations to support a growing number of children worldwide who have been affected by economic shocks due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 1979, ABBA donated the royalties of one of their earlier hits Chiquitita to Unicef.
To date, that single has boosted Unicef’s aid coffers by approximately $5 million.
Meanwhile, the band has recently received its first Grammy nomination in 48 years for Record of the Year, for their comeback song, I Still Have Faith in You, and just now, a Brit Award nomination for Best International Group.
