"The Music for UNICEF Concert: A Gift of Song" is a live album and television special recorded on January 9, 1979, at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City. This event was organized to raise funds for UNICEF's world hunger programs, featuring performances by prominent music artists of the time. The concert showcased a diverse lineup of stars including ABBA, the Bee Gees, Donna Summer, Rod Stewart, John Denver, and Earth, Wind & Fire, among others, each donating the royalties of a specific song to the cause.

The concert was notable not only for its humanitarian effort but also for the collaboration between artists from various musical genres, symbolizing the music industry's collective support for global issues. One of the highlights was the Bee Gees performing "Too Much Heaven," which they specifically wrote for the event, pledging all future royalties from the song to UNICEF.

This concert is remembered as a landmark moment in music history, demonstrating the power of music as a unifying force for social change. It also set a precedent for future music-based charity events, underscoring the industry's role in addressing global crises.
