Got an e-mail from a reader this morning about a song they wrote and their thoughts about how music can impact world situations. Here is the message below and links to the bands site as well as a great video they put together for Tibet on YouTube.
My name is Dennis Holmgreen, and I’m the leadsinger, and thus representing, the Danish band: Shire.
We’ve been following the Free Tibet Campaign closely and came to the point where we felt that we had to contribute the best way we can. We write songs – so that was what we did. We are convinced that music can be a powerful tool to spread a message, and the Internet to spread that message worldwide. So we made a video to the song we wrote: “The Identity Beneath Every Tyranny”, and uploaded it to YouTube. The song and video are given away for free to everyone, so you may use it as you please.
