Gospel Music Legends Sing in Harmony for the Environment

United Nations, Together We Can” is today’s “We Are the World”

San Francisco  (June 14, 2005): “United Nations, Together We Can,” a new single written and produced by legendary, four-time Grammy winner Edwin Hawkins, features Kim Burrell, Byron Cage, Daryl Coley, Tramaine Hawkins, Walter Hawkins, Lashun Pace, Richard Smallwood, Ebony Holland and Heather Martin (Virtue), Doug and Melvin Williams (The Williams Brothers), Mitch Kenitzer, Elliott McCoy and Dave McVay (The Three Bridges), and French Jazz singer Raquel Bitton.

On June 5, “United Nations, Together We Can” debuted with a 300-voice choir led by Edwin Hawkins, Walter Hawkins, Tramaine Hawkins and The Three Bridges at San Francisco’s City Hall, for the closing ceremony of the United Nations’ World Environment Day.

Edwin Hawkins, whose “O Happy Day” is the best selling gospel song in history, brought together the biggest stars in the gospel music world to voice their support for a greener planet Earth.

“For the sake of our children, it is our responsibility to heal the planet,” said Hawkins. “We should take responsibility to maintain the natural resources we were given. I contributed this song to help raise awareness for the need for change before it is too late.”

Organic Bouquet Inc., (www.OrganicBouquet.com), the Official Florist for World Environment Day, commissioned Hawkins to write an inspirational, non-denominational song to help increase public awareness about environmental issues.

“I asked Edwin to write an inspirational, non-denominational song to help increase public awareness about environmental issues,” said Gerald Prolman, CEO of Organic Bouquet, and the song’s executive producer. “What better way to inspire environmental activism than through a spiritually uplifting song?”

“United Nations, Together We Can” is available at iTunes.com and at stores across the country. Profits from the sale will be donated to A Community of Unity, a non-profit led by Hawkins that raises funds for San Francisco Bay Area charities.
