Norah Jones, Tina Turner, Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson And The Neville Brothers Donate Songs For Benefit CD "Where We Live"
Many of the world's most outstanding musicians have contributed tracks for a new benefit CD entitled "Where We Live – Stand For What You Stand On." Scheduled for release October 7th, proceeds from the CD will support Earthjustice's Where We Live campaign to promote the universal right to clean air and clean water.
The benefit CD is a soulful collection of hard-to-find tracks that remind us about the importance of standing up for your rights, staying strong, and celebrating when ordinary citizens achieve victories in protecting the planet we live on.
"We are honored by the participation of these great musicians in support of the environment and public health," says Buck Parker, Executive Director of Earthjustice. "When people buy this CD they are helping Earthjustice clean up the air and water and provide a voice for people living with toxic pollution in their backyards."
