Songweavers 4th international humanitarian charity CD, Ray of Hope IV, which celebrates the powerful words of Shimon Peres, has been released. Shimon Peres was the first to realise the peace making potential of this project and he penned the lyrics "Ray of Hope" which he donated to Songweavers. Musicians from all over the world have created the music for many different and beautiful versions of this song. I am delighted to be part of this project.
