On June 24, Iranian Superstar Andy Madadian went into an LA recording studio with Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora and American record producers Don Was and John Shanks to record a musical message of worldwide solidarity with the people of Iran. This version of the old Ben E. King classic is not for sale – it was not meant to be on the Billboard charts or even manufactured as a CD…..it’s intended to be downloaded and shared by the Iranian people…to give voice to the sentiment that all people of the world stand together….the handwritten Farsi sign in the video translates to “we are one”. If you know someone in Iran – or someone who knows someone in Iran – please share this link
Neda Soltani, the 26 year old Iranian woman, whose brutal death has become a rallying cry for the international community, was laid to rest today. From prayer vigils to a Facebook site honoring “The Angel Of Iran”, many are hoping that her senseless death will not be in vain. Unfortunately many more will probably die as revolutions more often than not are bloody. I hope that the Iranians can soon be as free as we are to pursue our hopes and dreams.
