Some of music's biggest stars are coming together for a CD in support
of peace in Tibet. Musicians such as Sting, Dave Matthews, John
Mayer, Suzanne Vega, Rush and Duncan Sheik are all contributing songs
to the compilation CD Songs For Tibet -- The Art of Peace. According
to Sting's websites all of the songs will be acoustic and they will
"reflect the sublime beauty and vulnerabilities experienced in
pursuit of happiness, peace and freedom," no word yet on exactly what
those tracks will be. The record will be produced by musician and
producer Rupert Hine known for his work with artists like Chris De
Burgh, Tina Turner, Stevie Nicks, Rush and Duncan Sheik.

The album will be available in stores and online on August 5, just
days before the beginning of this year's summer Olympics in China.
China has occupied Tibet since 1950. The spiritual leader of the
small country, Dalai Lama, fled Tibet shortly thereafter. Recently
there has been unrest in Tibet marked by violence in the region. The
proceeds from the sales of the CD will go to the Art of Peace
Foundation, a non-profit organization, founded on the Dalai Lama's
philosophy of non-violence and compassion. Funds will go to projects
promoting peace as well as Tibetan cultural preservation projects.
