"More than ever before, music is the “universal language.” This unique and extraordinary world music compilation consists of the beautiful melodies of the generous artists who have donated their songs to benefit the “All Children In School” program. This program benefits the 120,000,000 children worldwide, two-thirds of whom are girls, by providing basic quality education. If you cannot always understand the words of the songs, the emotion and heart of the artists can nevertheless be felt in each song. These artists have donated their work to save our future generations and to give them what they truly want and certainly deserve: the way to help themselves. So, kick back and relax and whether it’s in traffic, over dinner, during the holidays or “on the go,” immerse yourself into “our world,” knowing that you have helped to make it brighter." - Sean Hepburn Ferrer, Chairman & Founder, Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund
Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
