A statement says the song and accompanying video scheduled for release Wednesday "calls for calm, asking citizens of the world to stop the hate and violence that has resulted in many lives lost."

The proceeds for "#WHERESTHELOVE" will go to the foundation of will.i.am's i.am.angel.

The charity funds educational programs and college scholarships.
