Lois Chazen had a vision and promptly bought the domain when she intuitively heard the name, and this is how “World Peace For Animals” was created. Michael Jackson was her inspirational influence with “We are the World,” but her heart cried out to the animals. She desired to create a music fundraising project that would help make a difference in the animal’s lives worldwide! She devotedly planted the seeds-of-love, and an artist friend created the logo for “World Peace For Animals.” A few years later through Facebook connections, the seeds-of-love she planted flowered and so was the life-line for her project. Eighteen songs by twenty-seven inspired artists were completed, with the “soul” intention of creating funding, consciousness, and compassion through heart-felt music for the animals throughout the world.
The first CD is in memory of HARAMBE: We honor you Harambe–shot to death in the zoo–instinctively sheltered a child you never knew–good natured not defiant–nick-named “A Gentle Giant”– so in memory of your name–you achieved worldwide fame–flying on the wings of love–in Spirit of the Turtledove.
The songs on the CD: Harambe & Friends were created by the most incredible animal loving music artists in the world, and a few blessed ones are here to perform their songs dedicated to the animals–so enjoy and allow the music to touch your soul and put the love back into your hearts! All the animal loving music artists will also be performing their own songs as well–so enjoy and ROCK ON! Pray for peace and live love~ Lois Chazen
