Pharrell, Stevie Wonder, Sam Smith, & Lorde Unite in ‘God Only Knows’ Video

The biggest names in music come together for one epic video. To celebrate the launch of BBC Music, Pharrell, Stevie Wonder, Sam Smith, Lorde, Emeli Sandé, and more have remade the Beach Boys 1966 classic “God Only Knows.”

Pharrell looks dapper in a tuxedo, Lorde rocks angel wings, Elton John wears a suit covered in butterflies, and Kylie Minogue floats in a bubble.

The whimsical visuals also feature appearances from Coldplay’s Chris Martin, One Direction, Queen’s Brian May, Florence Welch, and Brian Wilson himself.

“All of the artists did such a beautiful job I can’t thank them enough,” said the Beach Boys frontman. “I’m just honored that ‘God Only Knows’ was chosen. ‘God Only Knows’ is a very special song. An extremely spiritual song and one of the best I’ve ever written.”

Proceeds from sales of the song will benefit BBC’s Children in Need foundation.
