The first album to benefit Sting and Trudie Styler's Rainforest Foundation features an eclectic mix of pop, classical, folk, and world music, and many of the artists who have participated in the annual Rainforest Foundation all-star concerts, including Sting, the Chieftains, Annie Lennox, Zucchero, Bette Midler, Luciano Pavarotti, Elton John, Shawn Colvin, Geoffrey Oryema, Madonna, Ruben Blades, Johnny Clegg, Paul Simon, Sharon Katz & the Peace Train, James Taylor, Tina Turner and an ensemble of globally renowned classical musicians led by pianists Katia and Marielle Labeque performing Camille Saint-Saens „Carnival Of The Animals“. Beyond the inherent quality of the material, which ranges from Madonna’s rousing „Freedom" (written for the album) to Turners reading of „Row, Row, Row Your Boat,“ the album supports a worthy cause and will benefit from massive visibility.
