Voice Project - Home Recordings Vol. 1
I am so proud and honored to be a part of this project, album, charity. Sharing the artist listing with Peter Gabriel, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, Joseph Arthur, Cary Brothers, Brett Dennen, Tom Freund... just to name a handful. Everyone is doing a cover of a friend's song, and all of the performances are live and pretty intimate. But I think the most moving song on the album, is Acello Miriam, singing "Come Home" to all the children who have been abducted and forced to commit murder. These boys are too ashamed to come home to their mothers. But this woman, along with all the other mothers, sing this song telling them to come home.
This video sort of says it all.
