The concert event of the year is still set,ready to go and shift into high gear as the finishing touches are applied. The link to the above newspaper article provides some very thoughtful quotes from event organizer and former Vice President Al Gore as well as some of the participating artists.Gore recalls Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind" at the beginning of the Civil Rights movement that really had an impact upon him.
JohnMayer who will be performing "Waiting on the World to Change",states it will be a nice afternoon to see the song take on a different meaning. Melissa Etheridge who wrote "I Need to Wake Up", the Academy Award winning song penned for Gore's An Inconvenient Truth,will be singing "Imagine That" and "What About Tomorrow".Madonna has written a song with Pharrell called, "Hey You".The Black Eyed Peas song will be "Change the World".It's looking like a good day for a live concert and the premiere of new material. Madonna's song "Hey You" is currently available for download with all proceeds going to Gore's alliance.My question: will there be a compilation disc that includes all songs performed available for download and purchase?
All artists are donating their time and funds raised will go to Gore's Alliance.
