On September 30, 2014 Eddie Vedder and Pearl Jam announced that Eddie Vedder‘s performance of “Imagine” from his July 18 concert in Portugal is available now on iTunes and that proceeds from sales will go to HEARTBEAT: Amplifying Youth Voices.
Heartbeat is deeply grateful to Eddie Vedder and Pearl Jam for so powerfully enabling our Israeli and Palestinian youth musicians to come together, build critical awareness, and harness music’s potential to transform conflict between their communities. We also send our heartfelt thanks to each person who has purchased the song.
People around the world are playing a huge role in building a better future for Israelis and Palestinians by investing in opportunities for the two sides to break through barriers and work together. This song lifts up the voices of those who seek genuine peace around the world and inspires a new generation of Palestinian and Israeli youth to find creative means to solve their conflicts.
With this support Heartbeat’s youth musicians will continue working to embrace music’s full power to make this world the world of our best imaginations. To get there, we have a lot of work to do and a lot of music to make. To get involved or learn more please visit: www.heartbeat.fm
