Acknowledgements

Collectively when we speak and perform from the love and care of our hearts, it not only makes a sincere statement of concern and support for the innocent victims of the tragedies of life, but it also helps to give voice to the voiceless and powerless in our society and world. We are grateful to all who have contributed to make this album. We especially thank all of the artists, musicians, writers, producers, labels, publishers, managers, lawyers, engineers and studios that gave freely and openly to make this venture inclusive and empowering. The forces of nature are strong, but throughout human history there is no force greater than the power of the human spirit when it is given a voice. With great love all things are possible.

Thanks to the American Federation of Musicians (AFM) and American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) and all of the participating musicians and vocalists for waiving and donating their fees in order to make this project possible.
