The movie mogul launched the #Hesgotthewholeworldchallenge on Instagram with a new video. At the beginning of the 8 minutes 15 seconds clip, Perry called on musicians to add to the song he was about to sing.

The "Madea" creator then belted out the lyrics to the song "He's Got the Whole World." The video went on to show other people taking up the song in different tones and keys. In the accompanying caption, Perry shared why he started the challenge, writing, 

"It's my hope that we add to this simple song in every language from every nation as we let it become a prayer for our whole world."


He asked his followers to remember it's all in God's hands. The "The Haves and Have Not" creator then tagged several celebrities to the challenge.

Chrystal Rucker took up the mantle and shared her version of the song on Instagram. She asked her fans to be encouraged and reminded them that "God got you."

He noted that it was not the time to point fingers, and indicated that maybe "It" came to stop the hatred and rhetoric


Dorinda Clark Cole shared a 1 minute 19 seconds video in which she repeated the song. She thanked Perry for tagging her in the challenge and told her followers God has not forgotten them.

Latin musician, Jeancarlos Canela, was also tagged in the challenge. The music star shared a video slide and addressed Perry in the caption with the words,

"… Thank you for doing this. For caring, for having such a kind and giving mindset, and for including us all."


Before launching the challenge, the "A Diary of a Mad Black Woman" star asked his fans to stay selfless and positive. In a post on Instagram, he shared the title of the Grammy-winning song by Yolanda Adams, "This Too Shall Pass."

Perry asked his fans to take the virus seriously. He noted that it was not the time to point fingers, and indicated that maybe "It" came to stop the hatred and rhetoric.


The Atlanta resident added that the virus is a reminder that everyone is "One." The "Good Deeds" star is also washing his hands regularly and wants others to do the same.

In an IG post, he wrote that he doesn't care how "Ashy" he gets and also advocated for social distancing. Perry has since closed productions in his Atlanta studio; while at home, he is praying and staying safe.
