“We Hear Your Voice” exudes solidarity with the great voices of the world giving “voice” to the people. The goal is to highlight other nations’ great stars and idol, and to inspire their fans and followers to heal the divide between nations thereby transcending politics and borders and finding common ground in humanity itself.
This is a one of a kind project where each artist and musician has recorded and filmed footage of their respective recording sessions and shared their feelings about this venture and what they hope it will bring. A music video and short film will be released internationally in September in support of the project which will also feature some of the artists performing together live for the first time at the Greek Theatre.
