The Voice UK: Will.i.am’s song will be played on Mars!
Of the extraordinary request, Will – who was said to be “shocked” when actress Miriam Margoyles said she was pleased to meet him because he’s black – said, “I don’t think I can talk about it, but there is a rocket going to Mars…
“It lands in August and when in lands it will send back a signal to earth and that signal will be the song.”
Yup, way to not go on the not talking about it front. He pretty much told us the whole story right there!
However, he added, “This project with NASA is to help inspire kids to get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics…
“My mission is to inspire the youth to care about education.”
After that revelation, Will went on to discuss what an honour it had been for him to carry the Olympic torch recently.
He also said that he tweeted while carrying the torch because he’d been “banned” from revealing his involvement in the event prior to that.
He explained, “That’s when I was allowed to tweet about it. When they created the Olympics there wasn’t Twitter.
“The torch is a light and all I was doing was sending the light across the planet.”
“I just didn’t feel taking the money I earned so wanted to use it for some good.”
