Music Of Hope was an album to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. An all-star lineup (with a.o. the New York Philharmonic and the London Symphony Orchestra, Paul McCartney, Kurt Masur, Andre Previn, Ray Charles, and Emanuel Ax) contributed to it.
Tim Janis orchestrated the tune. Ray added his voice to the London Symphony (conducted by David Snell) at his own RPM International Studio in LA, and did the end mix.
