Video: Jamie Oliver

It all started when Jamie Oliver asked Ed Sheeran to make a video to support Food Revolution Day, the celebrity chef's campaign to "force governments across the world to promise and commit to teaching every child how to grow and cook fresh and nutritious food at school."

Ed, being the musical poet he is, went the extra mile and wrote an anthem for the day. The next step was for Jamie to round up his musician friends and record the song, with him rapping a verse and playing the drums.

Hugh Jackman and Paul McCartney were among the famous faces to have a few lines in the track. Jazz singer Jamie Cullum also provided some piano accompaniment.

Now it's your turn. Sign it. Share it. "Everywhere," Ed adds at the end of the video. "Facebook, Twitter, write it on paper and throw it at people. Tell people about it."
