2 Unite All was first released in 2014 and has now blossomed into two volumes with new tracks of peace and unity from Roger Waters, Phillip Lawrence (of Bruno Mars), Thomas Bergersen and Richard Gannaway with a Gaza Children's Choir.
Amongst the 30 songs are those written and performed by famous artists including Peter Gabriel, Stewart Copeland, Serj Tankian, Sasha Cooke, Gary Nicholson and Fox Lima.
Steve Robertson, Executive Producer of the album and CEO of Project Peace On Earth (PPOE), started the 2 Unite All project after watching a harrowing TV news report about a young Palestinian girl hospitalized after a bombing in Gaza. She lost her entire family and Robertson was so moved that he pledged to offer as much help as possible.
Robertson contacted dozens of musicians and produced the 2 Unite All album and a video of the song 'Haumea (We Are The Ones)', performed by the NCCR Gaza Children's Choir.
Philip Lawrence explained why he wrote the song 'Begin Again' for 2 Unite All Vol. 1. "Knowing there are children and families in the world who have experience lives of pain, trauma, violence, injustice and feelings that they've been forgotten simply breaks my heart and should never be tolerated … I wanted to be part of this album to use my God given gifts to give these children and families some peace even if only for a moment. In the end we are all one family and those are all my children, brothers and my sisters."
The Mayor of Bethlehem, Vera Baboun, said, "The PPoE new 2 Unite All album features a precious group of children from Gaza, who live in life or death danger every day. Can you imagine? Of all the children in the world, these are the ones who had the courage to sing out a message of hope to remind us of the power of love and peace."
She continued, "Haumea proclaims the message 'We are the voice of One, We are the way to peace, We are the ones who carry the forward light' - this touched my heart."
2 Unite All proceeds will fund medical and psychological assistance for Palestinians in Gaza and people in the Middle East region. Beneficiaries are listed at 2uniteall.com.
Interviews are available with Steve Robertson (CEO of Project Peace on Earth and 2 Unite All Producer), Ricky Kej (Producer), Mr. Khaled Abuzaid (NCCR Founder) and select musicians.
