I firmly believe that music has the ability to cross boundaries, to unite people for important causes and to bring awareness to issues. I love what Bono says "Music can change the world because music can change people".
I think back to my own childhood when I was introduced to humanitarianism for the first time. I was just a kid but I was deeply impacted by "The Concert for Bangladesh". Prior to George Harrison and Ravi Shankar forcing the world to look at the devastation over there, I had no idea such suffering even existed.
A new project, one that I LOVE, is called "Playing for Change". You may have seen some of the videos on the internet. If not, you are missing out. I have a CD/DVD to give away to the first person who would like it!
