This is music to our ears.

In celebration of Earth Day on April 22, Grammy-winning artist Esperanza Spalding will premiere the music video for her new song, "Endangered Species," at the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

The video will be shown on three Jumbotron screens as well as be simulcast online through the Earth Day Network, according to a press release about the event.

But Spalding's participation in Earth Day doesn't end there.

The singer has also announced that her concert scheduled for that day in Boston will be an official Earth Day event as well. What's more, fans will also be able to go to her website later that evening to download "Endangered Species" and donate to the Amazon Aid Foundation.

"Now, more urgently than ever before, is the time to show our dedication and gratitude to the earth and all its inhabitants by working to protect and heal the earth's natural systems from the deadly abuses humans have mounted on nature," Esperanza said in a statement. "I am very honored this Earth Day to contribute my gifts by debuting my new music video 'Endangered Species.' All proceeds from this video go to environmental conservation organizations."

Spalding kicked off her world tour on Wednesday in Buffalo, NY.
