Featuring exclusive performances by Peter Gabriel, Andrew Bird, Billy Bragg, and Har Mar Superstar, the Voice Project presents artists covering other artists in aid of the women of Northern Uganda.
In a region where soldiers abducted as children are afraid to return home because of what they’ve been forced to do, the women have banded together to sing songs of forgiveness. Inspired by their undertaking, the Voice Project initiated “cover chains,” with musicians covering their favorite acts and passing the baton for that act to do the same.
The hope is that each chain will eventually start and end with the Ugandan women’s Gulu Choir, whose heartfelt entreaties have already begun to have an effect, bringing children home and offering hope for a peace that has eluded the region for over two decades.
