"Let There Be Love" is a song by English recording artist Melanie C from her fifth studio album The Sea. "Let There Be Love" is an English language cover of the German song "Liebe Ist Alles" by Rosenstolz. Melanie C performed the song on The Sea – Live tour.

Background[edit]

"Let There Be Love" is one of many ballads Melanie C has released in the German-speaking countries. It is her least successful single to date, despite being well received by critics and fans. Melanie hoped that the song would be a hit like "Liebe Ist Alles", but the single did not help to increase sales of her album The Sea in the charts.

Music video[edit]

The music video, filmed in Brighton, features Melanie on a street along the beach (a homage to her album The Sea, and also where the album was recorded). The video features different couples kissing and cuddling with each other, at various different places near the beach and Brighton Pier. As Melanie sings, the names of couples appear to be written onto a wall she is singing in front of.

B-Side[edit]

The B-Side "Stronger" was released as part of the digital bundle and limited edition CD release of "Weak" and "Let There Be Love". Melanie co-wrote 'Stronger' with Shelly Poole and Norwegian song writing and production duo Jim & Jack.
