"(We All Are) Looking for Home" is a charity single recorded by British singer and songwriter Leona Lewis and Grammy Award-winning songwriter Diane Warren, the latter of whom wrote the song. The track has been recorded and released in support of ending the ongoing cruelty and torture of dogs around the world, and in particular, the Lychee and Dog Meat Festival.

Background and release[edit]

"(We All Are) Looking for Home" is a charity single recorded by British singer and songwriter Leona Lewis, which was written by the Grammy Award-winning songwriter Diane Warren.[1] It is the second time that pair have collaborated; Warren wrote the track "You Knew Me When" for Lewis' fifth studio album, I Am (2015).[2] As Lewis and Warren are animal rights activists, they decided to work together again on a track which would raise awareness of the torturous cruelty to dogs around the world.[1][3][4] "(We All Are) Looking for Home" has been recorded and released to raise awareness of Lisa Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd's Vanderpump Dog Foundation. Speaking about the campaign, Todd said "It is our vision that this song will represent a movement to a more humane world for dogs everywhere and symbolize the global outcry for change." Vanderpump expressed her excitement at working with Lewis and Warren, adding "We are very excited to be working alongside such innovative women like Diane and Leona. They are just as passionate about this campaign as we are, and we truly appreciate their support,[1] the song will be supporting the Stop Yulin Forever campaign in particular, which is advocating for the end of the Lychee and Dog Meat Festival. The festival, which takes place in June of each year, sees up to 10,000 dogs and cats slaughtered for their meat.[1]
