Charlie Puth is ready for "Change." That's the title of his new single featuring legendary singer James Taylor, which the 26-year-old officially released on Monday after performing it at Saturday's March For Our Lives. On Tuesday, Puth shared video of his live performance, which is powerfully edited to showcase those who marched for gun reform.

"There's such a theme of change happening," Puth tells the crowd before the performance. "This song that I'm gonna perform for you right now — you don't know it, and that's totally fine. It just feels like the right song to perform right now."

"Look around, there are too many of us crying / And not enough love to go around / What a waste, another day / Another good one dying," Puth sings on the song, which is the first single from his upcoming second album, Voicenotes. "But I know that the world will change / The day we know we're all the same."

The video features emotional slow-motion footage of protesters holding signs and banners as part of the march, which was organized by young survivors of last month's Parkland school shooting. Toward the end of the clip, Puth chats and poses for photos with some of the marchers.
